Madame Frigo’s services are made possible through close collaboration with many individuals in the different communities, the generous support from the Engagement Migros Development Fund as well as many other organisations and businesses. Only the close collaboration and continuous support from our partners enables us to stop edible food from being wasted day after day.

Refrigerator managers

We from Madame Frigo have witnessed it one too many times that fresh edible food has been kept in the refrigerators for so long that it has just been thrown away. Perhaps you feel the same? You can help the team of Madame Frigo to spread the word across Switzerland that Madame Frigo has commited itself to the war against food waste. Do you feel like helping? Can you install and manage a public refrigerator on your premises or in your neighborhood or do you someone who could? Please contact us by using this form. We look forward to hearing from you!

Initiating partners

As mentioned our efforts are made possible to a long-term partnership with Engagement Migros Development Fund that supports us in our efforts to establish a nationwide network of public refrigarators, launch campaigns and raise awareness about the food waste situation in private households across Switzerland.

Local partners

Running a public refrigerator is fairly easy: all you need is a fridge, a suitable location with a power supply and you’re all set.  Local partners will help you with the installation and the operation of the  public refrigerators on your  premises. Does your bar, store, garden, business etc.happen to be near a busy location? Then please contact us via   email to: and you will receive a non-binding proposal within a few days. Thank you all for your valuable contribution to this important cause.

Food partners

Private homes account for 45% of food waste in Switzerland, but there is also potential for cutting food waste in the retail sector. Many shops and organisations have already set themselves this goal, and now donate food to Madame Frigo free of charge on a regular basis. Will you carry on throwing food away, or share food you don’t need? Please contact if we caught your interest.
