Micheal Haase - Founder & CEO

CEO and Founder of Plant Jammer, former McKinsey consultant who moved into food because it is the ONE area where private individuals can significantly improve global sustainability... even without involvement of governments or big corporates.

Too Good To Go brings people together to fight food waste, through an app that connects users to stores that have unsold, surplus food.


Whywaste’s digital solutions help the store personnel both find and sell the products in due time.
