What our users say about us


We have been using the Surplus Exchange for half a year now and the overall experience and impressions are outstanding. We have been able to save 35,000kg of surplus raw materials and keep them from going to waste. The contact with the Leroma team has always been close and straightforward.


As a company who trades in science-based ingredients, it is painful to understand that some of the products could be discarded because of some miscommunications or changes from the customer's side. Discovering LEROMA and the Surplus Exchange, allowed us to mitigate a valuable product to a buyer outside of the EU with no need for disposal concerns. Recommended.


Our experience with LEROMA and the Surplus Exchange was very pleasant and fruitful. We saved around 100 tons of surpluses or residual materials with the Surplus Exchange. Hard to imagine that this amount initially should have been sent for recycling. With Leroma, we were always up to date and in a fast and reliable communication.Leroma is sharing the same values as the DVA, thus that you look for ways to contribute sustainability and efficiency.

LEROMA enables companies to increase their liquidity by selling its shopkeepers and avoiding additional disposal or storage costs. This reduces monthly costs by 12% on average.
LEROMA gives food raw materials a second chance and places monthly 200 tons of different raw materials on the marketplace as remnants.
We work with selected partners and link buyers and sellers to use a reliable marketplace.
Annual food losses in the value chain and how LEROMA can help
Food waste affects all of us!
1.6 billion tons of food are being wasted globally every year! In total, this amounts to one third of all food produced being lost. High financial losses go alongside the waste of food across industries.
This occurs at different stages of the whole supply chain. LEROMA wants to tackle the severe problem and offer a solution which addresses the beginning of the value chain.

LEROMA connects food processors with qualified buyers
Our expertise helps you reduce losses and turn your surpluses into valuable resources!
To increase the value and demand for surpluses, LEROMA is constantly researching applications in alternative industries. This means that a food producer cannot just pass on its surpluses to food processing companies. Rather, LEROMA's expertise enables a new understanding of who might need and use your surplus, even if it no longer meets food standards.
For example, surpluses can be passed on to the cosmetics industry, chemical processors or even the pharmaceutical industry.
