The top independent list has been calculated by identifying the London businesses that have saved the most meals from going to waste in 2019.

On revealing London’s top independent businesses , Jamie Crummie, co-founder of Too Good To Go UK, said: “Independent partners are the backbone of our UK business. When I first started knocking on the doors of restaurants and retailers back in 2015, it was independents that were first to take the leap into fighting food waste with us. That’s why it is important that we recognise the contribution of London’s independents to the efforts to prevent perfectly edible food ending up in the bin, and we can’t think of a better time to do this than when celebrating small businesses on Small Business Saturday.”
