A week and a half after announcing its expansion to Quebec City, Too Good To Go has launched in Calgary.

The app-based product enables consumers to purchase “Surprise Bags” of surplus food—ranging from sushi to produce and pastries—that would otherwise be thrown away. Consumers pay about one-third of the actual retail price.

In Calgary, Too Good To Go has partnered with Chunk'd Cookies, Lena's Italian Market, Artigano, Hoopla Doughnuts, Al Forno, Holy Cow and Vendome. The company says it adds new stores to the app each day.

"Our Calgary launch partners were each carefully selected as representatives of the vibrancy of the city, its people and its food scene. Without partners as strong as these we wouldn't be successful," said Too Good To Go’s country manager for Canada Sam Kashani, in a press release. 

Since making its Canadian debut in Toronto last summer, Too Good To Go has launched in Montreal and Vancouver. Too Good To Go is active in 17 countries and claims to have prevented more than 121 million meals from being thrown away since launching in Copenhagen in 2016.
