Morrisons customers are saving a fortune by using its ground-breaking app, Too Good To Go.

The supermarket giant is the first store to use the app which is designed to prevent food waste.

During the last 12 months, shoppers have prevented 250 tonnes of CO2e being emitted, the equivalent of 49 flights around the world.

When food is wasted, we also throw away all the energy and water it takes to grow, harvest, transport and package it.

The Too Good To Go service is available in the majority of Morrisons stores nationwide where customers can download the app.

Shoppers can purchase a bag of unsold food worth at least £10 and then pay through the service.

Steve Butts, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Morrisons, said: "We're making good food affordable for everyone and working with the Too Good to Go app also reduces food waste. Customers love it because they save money and the environment at same time."

Paschalis Loucaides, UK Country Manager at Too Good To Go, added: "Working with Morrisons has proven just how impactful collaboration is to reduce food waste.

"By saving 100,000 meals in the last year alone, we have been able to ensure that food is eaten and enjoyed instead of wasted.

"Our users have loved rescuing the Morrisons Magic Bags and I know, together, we can continue to make big strides in the fight against food waste in the months and years to come."

The Too Good To Go app offers Magic Bags of food from retailers, restaurants and cafes.

All people need to do is download the free app and browse local stores with food available.

Then they select their local store, pay through the app and collect their food during the given collection window.
