Our Story

Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together.


Working in grocery stores during our studies, we became worried for the future. We witnessed tremendous amounts of food being wasted every day. Fully edible food thrown away due to expiration dates. Together we started our company, TotalCtrl, with the goal of developing a tool that would help fight food waste. The company and the project quickly grew, and soon we landed our first major customer.

A lot has changed since then. From a tool to revolutionary technology: our solution is ranked as one of the world’s most innovative. We’ve also been named one of Europe’s most inspiring food waste changemakers.
