Munich Airport subsidiary Allresto, which is responsible for most of the airport’s food and beverage operations, has launched a pilot project to test a new app called Too Good To Go.
The platform lets airport visitors, passengers and employees order surplus food prepared by restaurants and other food service establishments at special reduced prices for pick-up between 8pm and 9.30pm.
The app was created by a Danish startup and is now in use in nine countries. To date, more than 10,000 food service locations and more than 5 million people have utilized the app. The first restaurant at Munich Airport to join the pilot project is Surf & Turf in the Munich Airport Center (MAC).
On the app, users see a list of participating stores within the hub. The platform also processes orders and payments and when an order is placed, the meal is ready for pick-up at the store or restaurant location within the indicated time window.
The responsible treatment of resources and climate protection are central priorities under Munich Airport’s corporate strategy. As part of its sustainable efforts, the hub has set the target of achieving carbon-neutral airport operations by 2030.
