New mobile app to help reduce food waste

The world’s first real-time mobile app developed to help food stores clear significantly more of its reduced to clear, often yellow labelled, food produce has launched in the UK.

Darren Nickels, Head of Henderson Technology with Alice Morris, Team Gander.

In an industry first, Gander, a mobile platform that displays ‘reduced to clear’ food products, has partnered with Henderson Technology to bring this sustainable technology solution to life in stores it partners with across the UK.

Gander is unique for this industry as it displays reduced to clear food automatically and in real-time, with Henderson Technology’s award winning EDGEPoS system pushing the reduced food products to the mobile app, as they are stickered in-store. Similarly, when that item is sold it is automatically removed from the app, providing an instant feed of all reductions in-store at any time making it simple and effective for the shopper.

Speaking on the launch of Gander, Ashley Osborne, Founder of Gander says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Henderson Technology to introduce this new technology to market in an industry first. Together through this partnership, we can take significant strides towards giving retailers and shoppers alike the ability to have a more sustainable and mindful approach to food shopping.

“Environmentally, food waste is a crisis and is one of today’s growing issues and it is forecast to increase substantially by 2030 unless serious action is taken.”
