World first anti food waste app, Gander, has enhanced its user experience by unveiling a series of new features. These include the ability to now search by location rather than just specific stores, an optimized interface to improve useability and the ability to view additional store offers.
The news comes as the cost of living continues to soar. With the inflation rate at 10.4 per cent, Gander continues to help families across Scotland to save money by providing real-time information on yellow labelled food items in local stores. It is currently available to use in the SPAR Abronhill and SPAR Stonehouse stores.
Stacey Williams, Head of Customer Engagement and Business Development at Gander, says: “We’re delighted to introduce Gander’s new functionalities and keep harnessing the power of technology. We have worked hard to provide an enhanced user experience and the app’s new features will allow consumers to locate yellow labelled foods more quickly, not only in store but right across their local area.
“Gander is committed to reducing food waste and to helping consumers to manage their shopping budget and achieve considerable savings by providing real-time information on reduced food items. Data from our Ganderlytics analytics platform, available to retailers, has shown that, on average, consumers using Gander save around 56 per cent on their food shop.
“Consumers often miss out on significant savings as these reduced food items are not always clearly marked or positioned in store. Gander provides a perfect real-time solution to help consumers make more considered decisions on how to manage their weekly shopping budget, before they even have to leave the house.”
Over the last four years, Gander has partnered with retailers across the UK in a bid to reduce food waste and transform bottom lines. Integrating directly with retailers’ point of sale systems,
the app provides retailers and consumers with an easy solution to reducing food waste by delivering real time information on reduced stock into the palm of the consumer’s hand.
As the cost-of-living crisis worsens, Gander also recognises its potential to help households make the most of their shopping budget. Its live feed displays thousands of reduced products to consumers, allowing them to filter by dietary requirements and preference.
