5 min reading time

Kemptthal, August 2, 2021 - Planted records 3 tons of surplus “planted.chicken sesame 2kg”. To ensure that the chicken made from plants does not have to be thrown away, the Swiss food manufacturer is carrying out a rescue operation with Too Good To Go.

Save food and try planted.chicken sesame

On Saturday, August 14, 2021, users of the Too Good To Go app can purchase 2 kg packs of planted.chicken sesame for 11.90 francs (instead of 79.50 francs) at Planted's headquarters in Kemptthal.

This is how consumers get it: Download the Too Good To Go app for free in the App Store or Google Play, open it and register once, enter the term “planted” in the search bar under the “Browse” tab, find the offer between Monday, June 2nd. Reserve and pay on August 13, 2021 and Friday, August 13, 2021 and pick up on August 14, 2021 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) in Kemptthal ZH. PS.Important: If you can't find Planted on the Too Good To Go app, change your location to "Lindau"."

Anyone who purchases a portion of planted.chicken sesame via the Too Good To Go app will be able to enjoy a product that is not available in retailers or in the Planted webshop. In addition, every bite counts twice: thanks to the rescue operation, all environmental resources used to produce the planted.chicken are not wasted unnecessarily. In addition, anyone who consumes plant-based chicken instead of animal-based chicken saves animal lives and does good for the environment because 74% fewer greenhouse gases are caused in production compared to animal-based chicken. The product's best before date, without interrupting the cold chain, is September 30, 2021.

“The temporary closure of catering establishments and home office requirements in Switzerland made it difficult for us to sell the entire quantity of planted.chicken sesame produced exclusively for canteens and catering establishments.” explains Tilo Hubmann, Head of Sales Switzerland at Planted. He adds: “With Too Good To Go we have found a friendly and quick solution so that the leftover planted.chicken sesame ends up on the plate instead of in the trash and at the same time consumers can enjoy delicious meat made from plants, which is made from 100 % natural ingredients. »

The topic of food waste is more relevant than ever

More than a third of all food produced is wasted. This contributes significantly to the climate crisis: according to the FAO, food waste is responsible for 8% of global greenhouse gases. Because on the way from the field to the plate, numerous resources are used - for example for transport, processing or cooling.

“We see the fight against food waste as one of the most effective solutions to climate change,” says Alina Swirski, Country Manager of Too Good To Go Switzerland. “That’s why we want to inspire and empower everyone to fight together with us against food waste.”

Too Good To Go is fighting its fight in Switzerland together with over 4,600 partner companies, almost 1.4 million registered users on the app and various initiatives to raise awareness of the topic - and in some cases with rescue operations like these. Since the start of Too Good To Go Switzerland, around 8,000 tons of CO₂e have been saved with the over 3.2 million meals saved. This corresponds to the same amount of CO₂e as 1,600 flights around the world or almost 50 years of hot showers.
