Entrepreneur Sneh Binny started his food preservation app called SaveEat App two years back, and it has only been growing with time. He says that the app forms the perfect bridge between restaurants who have surplus food and consumers who need food.
“SaveEat came into picture during Covid period in 2021 where the whole world was quiet there was a voice in my head not letting me sleep knowing that food wastage was the biggest problem in India and we have to come up with a solution that will not only solve the food wastage problem but will also revolutionise the way of enjoying food,” he says.
He adds, “SaveEat serves as a win-win solution for both restaurants and consumers. Restaurants can upload their surplus food onto our app, which we then offer at a discounted price to our users. This not only reduces food waste at the restaurant level but also allows consumers to enjoy quality meals at an affordable cost. For restaurants, it’s an excellent way to minimise waste while enhancing their brand’s reputation for sustainability. For consumers, it’s an opportunity to dine out without breaking the bank and not just that users can order from multiple restaurants in a single order allowing people to have the liberty to explore their taste buds to the max. apart from that we also give pickup options for users convenient choice.”
Talking about the response, he says, “Food waste is a colossal problem. It can be due to silly reasons such as less orders, over preparing etc, not only in terms of environmental impact but also when we consider the millions of people worldwide who go hungry every day. The inspiration behind SaveEat came from a realization that there was a unique opportunity to bridge this gap. We saw that restaurants often have surplus food at the end of the day, and simultaneously, many people are looking for affordable dining options. SaveEat was born as a platform to connect these two needs. Even though we are taking small steps we are making every step make an impact and people are now recognising us and we are overwhelmed by the response so far.”
