ADR and Too Good To Go team up to reduce food waste
Today, on Earth Day, Aeroporti di Roma, part of the Mundys Group, announces the start of its collaboration with Too Good To Go — a social impact company and the world's largest marketplace for surplus food — with the aim of raising awareness among passengers and the airport community about the importance of reducing food waste and educating them on the surplus food recovery projects in place in the food stores at the ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ Fiumicino Airport and ‘G.B. Pastine’ Ciampino Airport.
Fiumicino, 22 April 2024 – The partnership — which will see the implementation of the Too Good To Go service in a total of 32 food venues, including Autogrill, Chef Express, Lagardère Travel Retail Italia, MyChef and Venchi — is an important step in combating food waste in the airports, with the goal of reaching 12,000 meals saved and recovered. The estimate is that, by the end of 2024, this partnership will save more than 32 tonnes of CO2 emissions, in addition to 9 million litres of water and 33,000 m2 of land that would have been used to produce the food recovered.

“The strong spirit of cooperation that has always distinguished our relationships with our commercial partners has allowed us to reach this significant milestone,” said Marilena Blasi, Chief Commercial Officer of Aeroporti di Roma. “This is a further sign of our attention and care with regard to passengers and to the airport community that sees the airport as its home and will now enjoy an additional opportunity to help protect the environment by preventing food waste and actively participating in the sustainable values and policies of ADR and its partners.”

“We are proud and excited about the partnership signed with Aeroporti di Roma,” says Mirco Cerisola, Italy Country Director of Too Good To Go. “We are committed every day to making the prevention of food waste a good habit for everyone, everywhere. So we are very pleased to make it possible finally, for everyone setting off from the airports in Rome, to save food that is still good to eat.”

The collaboration will offer all passengers departing from Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino and the entire airport community the opportunity to purchase the Too Good To Go 'Surprise Bags' at a special price from participating stores, and to enjoy the wide selection of excellent products that would otherwise be wasted.
