We’re a European grocery e-commerce, aiding the sustainable reform of our food system by giving everyone a chance to save our planet in an effortless way.

The Motatos way

We’re not only a different kind of food store, with a burning passion for saving already-produced stuff. Above all else, we're a company filled with unlike-minded people who constantly turn our food-saving dreams into reality and are the creators of a remarkable company culture (humble hint: ours).

The Motatos way is all about being human, caring for each other, disrupting to challenge the status quo, and taking action to make things happen because, at the end of the day, food doesn't save itself.

About Matsmart-Motatos

Matsmart-Motatos is an e-commerce and impact company that saves already-produced food and consumer products from going to waste. How? Simply by buying surplus from FMCG suppliers and selling it cheap online to cost- and climate-conscious consumers in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, and Austria. A double win for the planet as well as people’s wallets.
