Created in 2020, Bene Bono is a French startup that works closely with farmers and food producers to save what would have been wasted (misshapen fruits or vegetables, damaged packaged food). We deliver these top quality products to consumers at a discounted price, helping them to eat good food, at the best possible price, while doing something good for the planet and farmers.

Growth has been very strong since 2020. We've closed a €1m pre-seed round in 2021 and just closed a €7m seed round this summer to initiate internationalization, with tier 1 European VC funds (Stride in the UK and Project A in Germany).

Our ambition? Become the anti waste e-grocery leader in Europe. We are proud to have an amazing team of 40+ happy people working for the company to help us achieve our mission.
