Food Sharing in Russia

Food Sharing in Russia

Russians throw away tons of food worth 1.6 trillion roubles per year. The situation can be changed by food sharing that is beginning to develop in the country.

      This, in particular, concerns online services, where users can transfer products with an expiring date free of charge or for a fee. Several food-sharing services officially work as communities in social networks, for example, there are more than 500 groups titled “Giving Food Away for Free” on VKontakte. Commercial food-sharing startups have also appeared in Russia in the past two years: these are Food Hide and Alisok; restaurants and cafes can sell unsold food at a discount through these.

      Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare took the initiative to amend the law and prohibit the destruction of edible products in June. The agency offers to use unsold food as biofuel.
