Your partners to reduce the impact of food waste in supermarkets

Known as Zéro-Gâchis in France, we have been developing simple and accessible solutions to reduce food waste in hundreds of stores across Europe.

Pioneers in the retail industry food waste fight

Where are my short-dated food items? Do I have to discount them? 25 or 35%? Or just give them away to charities? Which quantity?
Smartway was created in 2012. It was the first company to help food retailers act against food waste in France. We created “zero waste” corners and the first Food Waste Management System to optimize the end of food products’ lifecycle and get the best value out of it, while making this process easier for employees.
Smartway's 60 workers are committed to that alongside more than 500 customers. This collaboration saved more than 60,000 tons of food in 5 countries.
