 Project objective

This proposal refers to the development of PREFEapp, an innovative mobile application that aims at disrupting the way people consume food by cutting food waste at its roots thanks to the cooperation of final consumers, municipal undertakings and LSRT players. The app will offer final consumers: an automated digital food pantry to recreate the physical pantry on their smartphones, alert notifications sent when any product in the pantry gets closer to its expiry date, a notice board in which every close-to-expiry product is inserted and can be sold to neighbours or donated if it remains unsold, recipes based on users’ tastes and on the close-to-expiry ingredients already in the pantry as well as an inventory check with augmented reality (to use when grocery shopping) to know exactly how many stocks of products are already in the pantry. Municipal undertakings, instead, will access a dashboard to reduce their waste disposal costs by giving specific incentives to consumers to further reduce their waste production and by optimizing the door-to-door waste collection service. Finally, LSRT players will use the same notice board for their close-to-expiry products and would access real time food consumption data from app users. By doing so, PREFEapp will be the first mobile app in the world addressing the causes of food waste generation and not just providing a sub-optimal solution aimed at redistributing products based on the Food Recovery Hierarchy. Indeed, by creating an ecosystem in which the needs of all the actors involved are perfectly addressed – in terms of saving money that would otherwise be wasted, significantly reducing relevant cost items to grant a better service with lower expenses and increasing the customer base to achieve greater profitability – it will be possible to create a new food consumption paradigm allowing every final consumer to really change his consumption habits and to grant the sustainable development of our society.
