Together against
food waste

Did you know that private households are among the biggest contributors of food waste in Switzerland?

With more than 130 public refrigerators, Madame Frigo offers the Swiss public a practical and simple way to reduce their own food waste. At the same time, the fridges promote social involvement and are the result of the initiative of interested people. To counteract the problem of food waste in the long term, Madame Frigo also carries out various awareness-raising measures.

Fridges against Food Waste

Thanks to the help of over 450 volunteers, our fridges save more than 175 tonnes of food from premature disposal every year. The concept is simple: bring what you no longer need and get what you just missed at home.
