You can sell any kind of food and non-alcoholic beverages that are surplus. Restaurant portions, ingredients, beverages, and snacks are all applicable for ResQ if they otherwise might end up in the trash.

Here are a few examples of products you can sell in ResQ:

  • Restaurant portions from lunch surplus (e.g. meatballs and mashed potatoes)

  • Grocery bags from grocery stores' surplus (e.g. bread bags, veggie bags...)

  • Ingredients from the restaurant kitchen (e.g. salmon fillet)

  • Natural products and vitamins

  • Seasonal items after the season (e.g. Christmas chocolates after Christmas)

  • Items you don't need anymore for other reasons (e.g. menu changes in restaurant or supply changes in a grocery store)

Please note that all items must be sold with a considerable discount, for example, at -50%.

Here are a few examples of products you cannot sell in ResQ:

  • Alcohol: In most of the countries where we operate it's illegal to sell alcohol in online marketplaces.

  • Non-edible items: We're a marketplace for surplus food, so make sure everything you sell is edible. You can, however, add a non-edible component into the bag: for example, a flower bouquet into a grocery bag. Let this be a pleasant surprise for the customer instead of selling it as a part of your offer.

  • Products that had passed the "used-by" date: It's completely advisable to sell products marked with 'best before' dates sometime after the date, but this is not allowed with the 'used-by' dates.

  • Non-surplus food: The world is full of great solutions to sell takeaway food. ResQ Club is not one of them.

  • Inedible food: Customers' safety is important. Even partly moldy products are not to be sold.
