Swedens 1st rescued food catering service

One third of the food we grow in the world is thrown away.


This waste could be blemished 'ugly' veggies that don't look presentable on the supermarket shelf or mislabeled food packages that are cheaper for the manufacturer to throw than to correctly relabel.


There are no culprits, only engaged doers.


At Rude Food we identify food wastage points and work with food waste partners to circulate the surplus back on to our plates and put food where it needs to be - in our bellies.


Every city should have its own recycling kitchen


Rude Food is one such kitchen in Malmö, Sweden.

How to reduce food waste:



Rude Food collaborates with food producers and distributors to circulate their surplus.


Initiated as a citizen's initiative by design researcher Zeenath Hasan at her kitchen project Tapori Tiffins in October 2014, Rude Food Malmö was registered as a not-for-profit association on May 2015. A strong volunteer force drives the food rescue activity and a paid team manages the project and its kitchen work. Revenues from the catering activities are looped back into the running of the project. Approximately 60% of the rescued food is redistributed to food insecure groups.
