Founded in August 2019 in Montpellier, LoopEat is committed to the fight against wasting resources. The company launched a crowdfunding campaign with Les Coursiers Montpelliérains to develop meal delivery with reusable containers.
Regional Pépite LR 2019 competition
A student-entrepreneur at Pépite in Montpellier, an association that promotes entrepreneurship among students, she laid the cornerstones of her project, which has been assisted by the Alter’Incub incubator since the spring of 2019. The project then won the regional Pépite competition in September.
“I discovered reusable containers by the Swiss association Recircle at the Zero Waste festival,” explains Adeline Lefebvre. “I came up with the idea to offer them to Montpellier restaurants using a consignment system.”
The founding partners developed an application to manage consignments. They have also created a training program to raise employees’ awareness regarding the zero-waste concept and help provide them with the means to implement it. Training winds up with a LoopEat style meal, provided by a local restaurant and delivered by Les Coursiers Montpelliérains in reusable containers. It’s their way of reconciling hospitality and preservation of the planet.
