Aeroporti di Roma, part of the Mundys Group, has begun a collaboration with Too Good To Go, the world's largest marketplace for surplus food

The partnership has been launched to raise awareness among passengers and the airport community of the importance of reducing food waste while educating them about the surplus food recovery projects in place at Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino and GB Pastine Ciampino airports.

Involving the implementation of the Too Good To Go service in a 32 food venues, including Autogrill, Chef Express, Lagardère Travel Retail Italia, MyChef and Venchi, the initiative aims to combat waste, with a target of 12,000 meals saved and recovered. The estimate is that, by the end of 2024, this partnership will save more than 32 tonnes of CO2 emissions, in addition to 9 million litres of water and 33,000m2 of land that would have been used to produce the food recovered. 

“The strong spirit of cooperation that has always distinguished our relationships with our commercial partners has allowed us to reach this significant milestone,” said Marilena Blasi, chief commercial officer of Aeroporti di Roma. “This is a further sign of our attention and care with regard to passengers and to the airport community that sees the airport as its home and will now enjoy an additional opportunity to help protect the environment by preventing food waste and actively participating in the sustainable values and policies of ADR and its partners.”

The collaboration will offer all passengers departing from Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino the opportunity to purchase the Too Good To Go 'Surprise Bags' at a special price from participating stores, and to enjoy a wide selection of products that would otherwise be wasted. 

The Too Good to Go service will feature at 32 ADR food outlets
