Users face challenges in manually tracking items in their pantry, fridge, and freezer, leading to the risk of forgetting about certain products and eventual waste. Difficulty in planning meals based on the items available, especially when products are nearing their expiration dates, contributes to food waste and limits culinary creativity.


The ultimate goal was to build and launch a solution for users in the Norwegian Market. Our primary goal was to create a comprehensive solution for users to minimize food waste through efficient inventory management. This involved extensive research to identify core features such as user sign-up, onboarding, Scan and add Products in the Kitchen, Shopping List to Kitchen, and seamless data transfer from the Kitchen to the app. Prioritized UX/UI design, and outlined user flows, ensuring an intuitive and brand-aligned app. To deliver a bug-free product, the end-to-end testing was ongoing and in-house. As a result of the whole effort, the app is already 3+ years in the Norwegian market, and new features are being developed and launched.
