Crateful is a mobile app that provides restaurants and households with food composting solutions.


Food waste is a pressing global issue with severe implications on our planet. Crateful is a digital solution that enables us to solve food waste easily, conveniently, and positively.

Project description

Crateful is a mobile application that helps restaurants and households compost their food waste by providing the appropriate service for each user group. Restaurants can have their large amounts of food waste collected by designated pick up trucks scheduled and ordered through the mobile app. Households and individuals on the other hand can dispose their food waste at drop off bins positioned conveniently near their homes, which are unlocked and accessed through the app.
