Food waste

Food waste is everyone’s business

Did you know that about one third of all food is lost between the field and the plate? According to a study by ETH Zurich from 2019, that’s about 330 kg per person and year. That’s why we’ve been campaigning against food waste for many years. You can also play a part in fighting food waste, because avoiding food waste isn’t difficult at all.

Our goal: less food waste

One thing is clear: to save this third, we must consistently avoid food waste from the field to the shelves of our stores to your home. This can only be achieved if everyone pitches in.

By the end of 2025...

... we will reduce food waste in the Migros supermarket and consumer market sector by 20%.
We fight for all food at different levels of the value chain, constantly entering into new partnerships to prevent food waste. For example, we saved 309,202 food packages from going to waste in 2022 with the free Too Good To Go app.
