A second chance for foods

Too twisted, too small, too big: the idea behind on.perfekt is to set up the first shop in the Grand Duchy selling imperfect foods, the aim being to reduce food waste. The shop, which opens its doors in September 2022 in Marnach, in the Nordstrooss-Shopping Mile, aims to give a second chance to foodstuffs that are discarded because they don’t meet the standards or have gone past their use-by date.

The shop also aims to support local and regional producers, either by carrying out a second harvest on regional farms or by recuperating unsold products from small producers, food shops and supermarkets.

At the moment, the shop operates as a pop-up outlet that opens its doors one Saturday a month at Majerus-Geimer Constructions in Hosingen. The exact dates are published on the Facebook Page of on.perfekt. Consumers are free to pay whatever they think is a fair price. This will change with the opening of the shop in Marnach where the foodstuffs will be sold at a fixed price.

on.perfekt is a cooperative within which its active members offer their assistance in the shop and in the fields. on.perfekt is always looking for people who want to make an active commitment to the project.
