Forkful allows your business to list and sell otherwise unsold goods; turning your food-waste problem into an environmentally sustainable, financially viable solution.

Case study

We’re bringing leftovers out of the shadows: diverting surplus food from landfill is better for the planet – and better for your bottom line.

A hospitality business throws away $50 worth of edible food daily. Over 365 days a year, that loss amounts to $18,250. Forkful can help your business reduce this loss, attract new customers and promote its food waste with a zero dollar upfront investment.
