ZAKEY: The smart app that helps you save money and the environment!

Every year, an estimated 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted in the global food industry and than a third of all the food we produce for consumption goes to waste before it’s even sold or consumed.

The situation is no different in Qatar too as an estimated sixty percent of the urban solid waste in the country is composed of food, according to a case study published by United Nations in 2021. This translates to an average food waste estimated between 0.7 kg and 0.9 kg per person per day for the food service sector.

This issue is aggravated by the strict laws for the sale of food and other perishable items implemented by ministries due to which most vendors often remove products from shelves several months before their date of expiry that eventually end up as waste.

Could ZAKEY be the key to this problem?

This is why ZAKEY (meaning smart in Arabic) was born. Zakey ‘shop smart’ تسوق بذكاء is an e-market place where vendors can offer their surplus whether it’s overstock, aging stock or nearly to expire products at a reduced price allowing people to actually benefit from those products and meals before it’s too late and are sent to the la drills.

It’s a win-win situation as vendors reduce their carbon footprint and their losses, customers save money while helping save the planet. This user-friendly app allows customers to browse all available surplus near them, clearly view the products expiry date, proceed to check out pay by card or cash and get delivered to their doorstep the same day!

ZAKEY makes meals and products getting close to their expiry date or available in excess in retail stores available to customers across Qatar at a discounted price. It’s that simple and at the same time so impactful on the long run as thousands of perfectly good meals and products will be saved from landfills.

What are you waiting for? Download ZAKEY (App Store & Play Store) and be part of the change!
