Canadian grocery delivery app Tiggy joins growing food waste platform

Tiggy, a 15-minute grocery delivery app that launched in Vancouver last year, is joining food waste management platform Too Good to Go.

Tiggy is the latest company joining a growing list of food businesses and grocery retailers tackling the food waste challenge in Canada.

Eugene Biskova, Tiggy founder, says her company’s service is a sustainable option for consumers because “they don’t have to stock up or drive anywhere. Everything is delivered directly to them within 15 minutes by our bicycle couriers.”

Biskova adds that bulk buying is increasingly being recognized as a “major culprit to food waste that accounts for 35.5 million tonnes in Canada each year. That’s because consumers tend to stock up, thinking they need more than they actually do. Grocery items go to waste because consumers are flooded by food choices, or opt for unplanned dinners during the week with friends.”

He anticipates that with the Too Good to Go partnership and its inventory management system, Tiggy’s food waste can be reduced to 3 per cent.

As it continues to expand, Biskova says it is adding more locally produced and Canadian brands in grocery, personal care, pet and fresh produce categories as part of its sustainability strategy

Tiggy currently operates six micro fulfillment centres, two in Toronto and four in Vancouver.
