FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Artificial Intelligence – the solution to food waste at home.
Developers of the EatBy App have incorporated artificial intelligence into their kitchen management and grocery list app to reduce domestic food waste.
The latest release of the EatBy App includes a new feature – it automatically suggests how long fruit, veg and frozen items will stay fresh for and then reminds you to use them up before they go off. But the clever bit, according to the developers, is that the app learns the storage habits of individual users.
“Not everyone’s kitchen is the same, and different food storage environments effect shelf life. EatBy App addresses this problem by learning as it’s used over time.”
Domestic food waste is now the biggest contributor to the global food waste problem. Supermarkets have suffered the brunt of bad publicity, being blamed for massive quantities of unsold food being wasted. Many supermarkets and grocery … Continue reading
Steffan and Barbara have been invited to speak at Seeds&Chips on the 13th of May in the FUTURE conference room from 10:15 am.
They’ll be talking about the development of the EatBy App and the future of the “internet of food”, highlighting the need for improving efficiency and connectivity across all aspects of the global supply chain, from farm to fork – via our soon to be “Smart Kitchens”.
EatBy App will be exhibiting throughout the Seeds&Chips International Food Technology Summit in Milan, from the 11th to the 14th of May at the MiCo – Milano Congressi, so if you’re attending, feel free to visit Steffan and Barbara at the EatBy App stand, D21, for a chat.
“We’re super keen to meet like minded people, to discuss future possibilities and collaborations.”

As part of a current holiday campaign, EatBy App are raising awareness about reducing food waste by encouraging families to turn fruit and vegetables into cute characters and to upload photographs onto the app and on social media.
“We want to encourage kids to learn more about fruit and vegetables with their family, and become experts in avoiding food waste,” said Barbara Lewis, one of the founders of EatBy.
Food waste is a problem of global proportions with one third of all food produced ending up being thrown away. Businesses and supermarkets are making an effort to reduce their food waste. But it is up to all of us to make a difference. Supermarkets provide us with perfect fruit and veg because that’s how we’ve grown to like them.
“When faced with a choice,” said Steffan Lewis of EatBy App, “We still pick up the nicest looking carrot even though we know it tastes no better than the wonky one. It’s what we’ve become used to.”
We teach our children not to judge … Continue reading

Halloween is approaching but does the back of your fridge look like a scene from a horror movie?
For many of us October marks the transition from Summer to Autumn which naturally leads to a seasonal change in what we eat. But as we swap our salads for warming vegetables it’s inevitable that there are foods likely to be forgotten in the the back of the fridge.
So this is the ideal time of year to take an inventory of what food you have in the kitchen and use up whatever you can to make room for the new season. For example, using those opened summer BBQ condiments as marinades can really spice October up.
Food waste is a huge environmental problem so we should all be doing our bit to reduce the amount of food we throw away. But it’s not just about the environment – throwing food away is also a huge … Continue reading
In reply to an article, Let Them Eat Waste, by Francesca Price…
My wife, Barbara, and I, are avid supporters of initiatives addressing problems of food waste. Our personal quest to reduce food waste has resulted in us developing the EatBy App which is a free app designed to help householders reduce food waste by better kitchen management. (Our app plug is over.)
It’s fantastic to see a number of initiatives that are finally emerging to tackle food waste at every link in the food chain, from supply to consumer to suitable disposal. The key is to look at the problem in its entirety – not just at one particular aspect of it. Granted, our app is aimed towards reducing domestic waste and we hope it also increases awareness. We are acutely concerned that, until supply more closely reflects a more suitable and sustainable demand, unnecessary food waste is inevitable. Demand will change as consumer habits alter. And old habits will only change with heightened awareness of the problems and, of course, with suitable solutions including … Continue reading

Introducing the new mobile app,”Eatby App”
A new money-saving app launches soon: The EatBy App has been created and developed by husband and wife team, Steffan and Barbara Lewis, after a number of incidents when they threw food out because it had passed its Use By date.
“Steffan, mourning his discarded egg custard tart, answered with that modern cliché, ‘I bet there’s an app for that.’ ”
When they learned how much food is unnecessarily wasted worldwide every year they became passionate about the global issue and made it their mission to change the way they shop for food and manage their kitchen.
And so the idea was born. After scouring the available apps Steffan and Barbara decided that there wasn’t a brilliant solution … Continue reading
