Entrepreneur Eugenie Dronneau created the app to help businesses in the region become more sustainability-minded.

According to FoodKarma, a third of all food produced globally each year is wasted, equating to 1.3 billion tonnes and US$1 trillion worth of food lost. In the UAE alone, AED13 billion ($3.5 billion) worth of food is thrown away, amassing 3.27 million tonnes of waste annually.
