You may think of TreeDots as an online outlet mall for food items that are still safe for consumption but do not hit the usual (and unnecessary) aesthetic and industry expectations. We have created a B2B marketplace for such food items to be peddled at a discounted price to our participating F&B companies, non-profit associations, and practically anyone who is capable of clearing and consuming them before they perish – an idea that is the first of its kind in Asia.
Our mission is to minimise the amount of food waste starting with Singapore, and eventually the World through a self-sustaining ecosystem via our aggregation of F&B businesses on different points of the value chain within TreeDots to ensure that there is no longer a need to dispose of perfectly edible food. We are also currently collaborating with National Environment Agency (NEA) in their food wastage reduction (FWR) outreach programme to further spread the seeds of our initiatives around the nation, and always looking for opportunities to work alongside more like-minded organisations to strengthen what we stand for.
There is no reason for this battle to be a lonely one. We have seen reports of how natural habitats have been cleared to make way for more farming spaces to create an abundance of food surplus which people throw without a second thought while millions are still dying from starvation. Food wastage also impedes greater recycling efforts since they lead to contamination of recyclable trash. Would you be keen on living amidst industrial farm produce and trash? Probably not. We thus implore you to try looking for your products here with us first before heading straight to the mall to pay more for the exact same product. Zero waste should never be this hard.
