Having supported startups in Africa, Germany, and Mexico, our consultants focused their pro bono activities on a food retailer in France that is overturning the industry.
What is Nous Anti-Gaspi?
Nous Anti-Gaspi is a food retailer dedicated to reducing food waste. Since their launch in 2018, they have opened about 20 grocery stores in France, selling products that don’t meet retailer standards. For example, products that are visually imperfect, have packaging defects, short expiry dates, and so on.
While their aim is clearly environmental, they also have a social mission:
- To provide quality products to all consumers by offering more affordable prices than traditional supermarkets
- To purchase unsold products from local producers at a price that covers their costs
How did Simon-Kucher help?
I really enjoyed building tomorrow’s pricing model with Nous Anti-Gaspi. This project proves that there are innovative business models where everyone wins: producers, retailers, consumers, and, most importantly, the planet!
Will Simon-Kucher work on similar projects in the future?
