More than 190 meals already saved thanks to the Auchan Korzó-Munch collaboration!
We, the operators of Auchan Korzó shopping centers, believe in environmentally responsible solutions and strive to operate in a way that has a positive impact on the environment. One example of this is our cooperation with the Munch platform, which started in February this year. The project aims to engage our catering tenants in the circular economy to reduce unnecessary food waste.
Munch is an online initiative that allows restaurants and shops to sell their leftover, but still good quality meals at a discount. It's a win-win situation, as restaurants and shops generate revenue from the sale of leftovers, while environmentally conscious shoppers can get up to 40-60% off Munch food parcels. What's more, both parties are actively combating food waste, as surplus food is not thrown away but used, contributing to a more sustainable lifestyle.
If a customer wants to join the food rescue program, all they have to do is register on munch.hu or download the app, then use the online map to choose the restaurant they like and book the remaining food. They can pay for the meal package they ordered via the online interface or the app and then pick it up at the restaurant of their choice.
The long-term goal of this increasingly popular venture, started by four university students, is to make “munching” - meaning eating unsold food that is still perfectly fit for human consumption - a habit and part of people's everyday lives.
We are pleased that the Auchan Korzó shopping centers are also contributing to the realization of this plan, as since the debut of the cooperation in February, 192 meals have already been saved in the Auchan Korzó food courts.
The program includes the Lamenza and Grill Station restaurants of Auchan Korzó Budaörs and Auchan Korzó Maglód, as well as the Mira Csárda of Auchan Korzó Törökbálint, but we are expecting more applications from other tenants.
