(Last Updated On: 19th September 2018)



With BonApp restaurants can post deals of any surplus food they have on a daily basis and customers can get up to 50% discount from their favorite local restaurants and cafes.
What or who is the inspiration behind your start-up?

We are three Scandinavian ladies, passionate about a more sustainable way of living. Frustrated with the huge footprint we all contribute to living in Dubai, we wanted to come up with a business model that helps people to make decisions in everyday life which has a positive impact on the environment. Inspired by the UAE Food Bank launched last year and Dubai Municipality’s #ZeroFoodWaste campaign, we´ve created BonApp.

Tell us why your business is the “best thing since sliced bread”

It’s a good solution for restaurants, great deals for foodies and an even greater way to contribute to a sustainable way of living. It’s really a triple win!

Who is your hero in the restaurant business – the one that you aspire to be?

Gunhild A. Stordalen, a Norwegian physician, environmental advocate and public debater. She  is the founder and president of the EAT Foundation and a driving force in linking climate, health and sustainability issues to transform the global food system. She believes food entrepreneurs will change the world and we couldn’t agree more.

“Whether you study, govern, produce, market or simply eat food, you are part of the food system, and therefore need to be part of a shift. We need to re-think the entire value chain, from how and where we grow our food all the way to how we handle our leftovers”.


What is your favourite dish on the menu and why?

Almond croissant, because they are huge and flakey with billions of layers! And coffee. On the side! Of course.

What (lessons) have you learnt along the way that you would like to share with other foodpreneurs?

 To be a passionate foodie at heart.

We have learned that entrepreneurship is much easier when you’re not doing it alone, finding success is much easier in a team with partners whose skills complement each other and the importance of advisors and mentors who will nurture you to become better.
