What our customers say

“80-90% of what otherwise would have been thrown, now generate additional revenue. But the big gain is that we actually save food together with our customers. The “throw box” now goes into Karma instead of ending in the green vessels, which feels much better for all employees.”

ICA Liljeholmen - Food rescuer of the year 2018!

ICA Liljeholmen was one of the first grocery stores to partner with Karma. In 2018 they were awarded “Food Rescuer of the Year” in Sweden.

To achieve all of this, ICA Liljeholmen seamlessly integrated Karma into their daily routine, utilising the Karma app daily for the best results.

Rescued Items: 17,400
Rescued CO2 emissions: 8,668 kg

How Hemköp turned a food waste problem into a profit

After the collaboration proved a success, they expanded their items to include fruit, bread and general groceries. The new mix of items uploaded in the app made an immediate and positive impact on sales. Instead of having great food go to waste, Hemköp Malmö Plaza are now rescuing more than 1,000 items per month, generating additional foot traffic and revenue. They currently reduce CO2 emissions by 0.5 tonnes monthly through their work with the Karma app

Rescued Items: 2,100
Rescued CO2 emissions: 682 kg

Coop’s success story: 200 kg of food rescued in 2 months

Coop’s collaboration with Karma resulted in instant revenue generation for the chain, and an impact in the battle against food waste on a local store level. . The continued and growing partnership with Coop across multiple store locations been popular with Karma’s user based and generated free marketing to the value of €115,000. Karma actively promotes Coop through the app’s map function to attract users that are close to a Coop store, push notifications and social media channels. Goodbye waste – Hello money is probably the best summary of the fruitful partnership between Coop and Karma.
