Consumer behavior, particularly the habit of purchasing food, storing them in cupboards and refrigerators, and forgetting them lead to the expiration of food, is one of the main factors contributing to this problem.

So Gourmet Market want to create a campaign that not just raising awareness.

Consumers can also effortlessly monitor their daily progress in reducing food waste.
