Couche-Tard is partnering with Too Good To Go to expand its partnership in North America and Europe.

By year-end, the two companies plan to have the Too Good To Go app available for more than 9,000 Circle K and Couche-Tard stores in the United States, Canada, Ireland and Poland. Too Good to Go helps grocery chains and retailers sell surplus food and reduce food waste on its marketplace app.

“As we expand and refine our food offering globally, minimizing food waste is a priority for us – and the right thing to do both economically and environmentally,” says Ina Strand, chief people officer and leader of sustainability efforts for Couche-Tard. “This partnership with Too Good To Go is a great complement to our continuous improvement efforts in our foodservice operations. Not only does it bolster our global sustainability commitments, but it’s also an innovative way for our customers to try our delicious food at a great price.”

Too Good To Go’s partnership with Couche-Tard started in 2018 in Norway and expanded to Denmark, Sweden, and select markets in the U.S., Canada, and Poland in the following years.

It has led to “no less than 1.3 million Surprise Bags – the equivalent of avoiding 3,510,000 kgs of CO2e and the unnecessary use of more than 1 billion litres of water,” according to a statement.

“Our collaboration with Couche-Tard has already made significant strides in the fight against food waste. This expanded partnership elevates our ability to impact to unprecedented levels, reinforcing the crucial role of businesses in addressing global challenges,” says Mette Lykke, CEO of Too Good To Go.
