SPAR Scotland trials food waste app Gander

In a first for the Scottish convenience store market, two SPAR Scotland stores have begun a trial with food waste app Gander.

The test will run for a minimum of 12 weeks in SPAR Abronhill and SPAR Stonehouse with the view to reducing food waste and offering customers the opportunity to buy a selection of fresh food at reduced prices.

Sonya Harper, central operations director at SPAR Scotland, said: “As a convenience store business, we feel it is important to reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfill.

“Gander has a great partnership with SPAR International and this trial is a direct result of exhibiting at our annual tradeshow in Aviemore last year.

“SPAR Stonehouse and SPAR Abronhill were selected as they are two of our ‘Keep it Simple’ innovation stores and they offer the home delivery service Snappy Shopper. The link between Snappy Shopper and Gander is important because over time we are looking to sell reduced products on the Snappy Shopper platform, giving our customers additional value as part of the rapid home delivery service already on offer.”
