Ubifood App Gives You Access to Last Minute Deals on Retailers' Surplus Food

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - Ubifood, a new app that aims to bring together food retailers and customers to reduce food waste, announces the launch of its iOS app.

"Every year 6 million tonnes of perfectly edible food ends up in Canadian landfills. That's 27 billion dollars worth of food and loss revenues," says founder Caroline Pellegrini. "Ubifood has set out to tackle this problem by saving customers money and by helping food retailers save good food from the trash."

Unlike other apps that offer deals and daily bargains, Ubifood is a triple-win solution that benefits the environment, forward thinking retailers, and today's eco-conscious clientele. It connects businesses with consumers in real time, allowing them to purchase discounted food items instantly. "In just two taps consumers can seal the deal, then grab their meal while we seal the revenues for the food partners" says Caroline.

Ubifood features deals from local vendors such as bakeries, cafés, fast food stores, and full service restaurants across Montreal. The mobile application is available for immediate download in the Apple App Store.

About Ubifood: Ubifood (ubifood.ca) is a mobile application that connects deal-hungry clients with tech-savvy retailers in real-time. With Ubifood, surplus food is sold and savored rather than counted as loss and thrown away.
