Digital solution allowing trades to price at 60 % their waste and surpluses, giving them to people in need locally. On HopHopFood digital platform, trades (food -but not only- trades or hotels or restaurants) propose their unsold products to people in need who go directly to the trade to collect them (products) or receive them (for services, like a haircut or a free service). In France, HopHopFood being an Association recognised by the State of General Interest, the trade gets a tax refund of 60 % of the value of the products/services donated to people in need. In France and for food, this is a service which looks like the service offered by Too Good To Go, but with a solidarity angle: the service is free and accessible only by people in need, and it allows the trade to be sure that their surplus is saved from waste, and offered gratis to people in real need. Business model for HopHopFood: to run the service, HopHopFood sign a convention which each trade, which specify that HopHopFood take a percentage of the tax refund received by the trade (typically 50 %, sometimes a bit less). HopHopFood being a Non-profit association of general interest, our team encompasses employees but also many volunteers and trainees who help us to develop our association and most specially our network of COMMERCES SOLIDAIRES. Depending of the amount, frequency and value of products given by trades via our Platform, we typically can hire one employee paid 30 000 € (net) each time we include approximately 20 supermarkets in our network (supply of food/products side). On the demand/collectors side, we have unfortunately an explosion of new people in need in France and in the EU, which means that now in France 28 % of the population are considered to be “en précarité alimentaire” (in food insecurity), meaning they have less than 3€50 per adult and per day to feed. Result is that we have every day more and more people that are seeking our free products on the platform and therefor all the free products supplied by the trades are collected, meaning 100 % of the theorical pricing of the donations is fulfilled. In consequence, our business model is very robust, unfortunately (because it proves that poverty will not disappear soon …).
