About Us

The ever-inspiring Tessa Clarke is the co-founder and CEO of OLIO, a free app that connects users who have unwanted food (households or local businesses) with neighbours living nearby who would like it.

Globally, over one third of all food produced is thrown away (worth >$1 trillion), and in the developed world half of all food waste takes place in the home. This means that WE are half the problem; but… it also means that WE can be half the solution!

OLIO now has over 650,000 users who have together shared almost 1 million portions of food. This growth is largely thanks to the 22,000 (and counting) volunteers who are spreading the word in their local communities, and collecting and re-distributing unsold food from local businesses via the app.

When we talk about people who inspire us, we think of Olio.
