Organisational Context
Yume is on a mission to end commercial food waste.

An award winning social enterprise and one of Australia's leading start-ups, Yume transforms how the food industry sells, donates and buys clearance and excess food through innovative and unique technology, the first and only of its kind in Australia.

Developed through collaboration with leading food manufacturers, Yume answers the need for greater visibility of the end to end journey of ageing stock. Food businesses can now step back from managing food at risk of going to waste and allow Yume's tech platform to do the heavy lifting.

The likes of Mars Food, Unilever and General Mills are already using Yume to sell clearance and excess food to other businesses in the food industry, while taking advantage of Yume's donation technology to connect to food relief organisations such as SecondBite - all with the click of a button.

Rapidly developing our technology to solve the inefficiencies of food systems for a more sustainable world, every day at Yume is different.
