Each year, 33 percent of all food produced globally goes to waste — that’s close to a billion and a half tonnes of food that’s never consumed! Yindii is an anti-food waste startup that has launched a mobile application designed to match
deal-seeking Bangkok residents with environmentally-conscious restaurants, grocery stores, and cafes offering delicious food that would otherwise be going to waste. The app is a direct-to-consumer platform that boasts exclusive and immediate ‘Happy Hour Deals’ with discounts from 50 percent to 70 percent. All you need to do is purchase a Yindii box and head to the restaurant to pick up your order or have it delivered. Currently, eateries listed include Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, Veganerie, and The Banana Warrior, among others. www.yindii.co
