Ebro Foods joins ‘Waste Warrior Brands’ against food waste

Madrid, November 26, 2020. Ebro Foods has joined the Waste Warrior Brands, an initiative promoted and coordinated by Too Good To Go, the app dedicated to the fight against food waste, which brings together major brands from different sectors such as food or hospitality, among others, to address the problem of food waste.

Too Good To Go has an important knowledge of the problem, the tools and a magnificent creativity to find solutions; and we both have a global presence, which will allow us to replicate campaigns in different countries through our different brands, thus obtaining greater diffusion and a greater positive impact.”

On the other hand, Madalena Rugeroni, director of Too Good To Go in Spain and Portugal, highlights that “ending food waste is everyone’s responsibility and therefore creating alliances between actors is key to tackling the problem, because by joining forces we can drive change. For this reason, we are very proud that Ebro Foods joins our ‘Waste Warrior Brands’ initiative, sharing our mission and demonstrating its commitment and involvement to make the food system more sustainable, efficient and responsible and help us raise awareness to move towards that figure. magic of zero waste. “
