About us

Our Aim

To create great technology that makes an impact, together with great people, and have fun along the way.

Our Vision

A future without food waste, where all people have healthy food to eat.

Our Mission

To provide technology that eliminates food waste throughout the value chain to save money, resources, people and the planet.

Our story

Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together.

Working in grocery stores during our studies, we became worried for the future. We witnessed tremendous amounts of food being wasted every day. 

Together we started our company, TotalCtrl, with the goal of developing a digital tool that would help fight food waste while saving our customers time and money. The company quickly grew, and soon we landed our first major customer.

A lot has changed since then. From a simple tool to revolutionary technology: our solution is ranked as one of the world’s most innovative by Retail Insider and we’ve been named one of Europe’s most inspiring food waste change-makers by the European Food Waste Innovation Network.
