That is around ⅓ of all food produced.
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.
