Hand in hand for a more sustainable Berlin: that is the shared mission of Unicorn Workspaces and the food rescuers of SIRPLUS.The two Berlin-based companies have been working together since April 2019 to conserve the planet’s resources. In the following we would like to introduce you to the commitment of SIRPLUS.
Did you know that 18 million tons of food are thrown away every year in Germany? This corresponds to about one truckload per minute. This waste of food often does not result from the fact that food is no longer consumable, but has a wide range of other reasons. Often fruit and vegetables do not even reach the supermarket assortment if their appearance does not comply with current standards. In addition, it is often the case that products are no longer sold even before their best-before date has been reached. Another fundamental problem is general overproduction.
SIRPLUS saves these foodstuffs and offers a platform on which surplus food can be sold in Berlin’s first “rescue market” and online. The mission is to work with the food industry to revolutionize food saving, to mainstream food saving and to increase food appreciation. The aim is to offer consumers, producers and non-profit organisations a solution to set a sustainable example against waste and overproduction.
We are happy to be part of this vision and would like to motivate you to support SIRPLUS with your next purchase. You can also make a donation to SIRPLUS’ current fundraising project.
The aim is to develop a franchise concept with the collected money, so that even more SIRPLUS rescue markets can be opened.
