Foodprint connects users to eateries with surplus food available for purchase at 50% the normal price. Each day the eateries who have partnered with Foodprint upload surplus food items that will otherwise be thrown out. The food is still completely fine to eat and of the same quality as if you’d purchased directly from the store itself. In just a few clicks, you can search for and purchase food items while exploring local eateries and rescuing food from being sent to landfill.
In Foodprint you can:
- Discover food available using the interactive map or list view
- Order and pay for your food
- Follow your favourite eateries to receive notifications when they have food available
- Filter your search based on your location and dietary requirements
- Search specific food items to satisfy your cravings
- Leave a review of your experience for the eatery to see
- See all previous orders
- Invite your friends to join you in rescuing food
- Track how much money you saved
- Track how much carbon you’ve saved
- Securely store your credit card for easy purchasing
Why is food waste an issue?
Humans overproduce food so much, that we end up throwing ⅓ of it away. This is a huge waste of not only the food but also the resources that went into creating that food such as the land, water, labour and money. What’s worse, is that when food is sent to landfill it decomposes and emits the greenhouse gas methane, which is a huge contributor to climate change.
In New Zealand, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets produce 50,000 tonnes of food waste annually. Over 60% of this waste is preventable as the food is still fit for human consumption. Foodprint provides a practical easy-to-use solution that is appealing to users and eateries, allowing both to reduce their foodprint.
Together, the Foodprint community rescues food, saves money and helps the environment.
This release includes security updates, full support for new iPhones and iOS, bug fixes and stability improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Facebook sign-up is now working
EDIT: I just tried it again this morning and now I can login via FB. Seems like the problem is with FB and not your app. Sorry for giving a 1 star rating 😂
However, may I suggest that if FB (or your APIs) is acting up for some reason, set a timeout so the users will know that something went wrong instead of letting them wait for nothing.
Just downloaded your app to give it a try, but I can’t connect using Facebook. It just goes on and on and it blocks any UI interaction so I have to quit the app and try again. Unfortunately, same thing happened. I mainly use Facebook to sign up cause it’s convenient so please take a look into it. I’m using iPhone XS with iOS 12.3.1. I have the FB app installed and I’m logged in. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your review and the update! Yes on our first day we had a few issues with the Facebook log in as we maxed out the API. The team worked incredibly hard to get this sorted out and did so within the day. Thanks for figuring out the issue on your own too!
Super easy to use, awesome eateries, delicious food and great deals! Highly recommend 👌🏻

Thanks so much for your review!
Our food was sold before we could collect!
This seems like a great idea but we’ve had two negative experiences. First we bought meals from Jess’s underground kitchen and our food was sold to a customer who wandered into the shop. Our money had already been taken and we were told it would be 5 to 10 working days before it was returned.
We gave the app another go and the second time we bought food from Little Bird, but on collection one of our items was no longer available - I don’t know why.

Hi Kitzella, so sorry to hear about your experience with us so far. We have already been in touch via email, but we also wanted to respond here. We have improved the notification system for eateries so they won't double sell items in the future.
In regards to the refund, all payments are handled by our payments provider so the time frame for refunds is set by them.
Do email us again if you have any other questions or comments. Thanks!
