Suffolk pub and restaurant operator Greene King is targeting food waste with cut-price meals at the end of the day.
The firm is joining forces with Too Good to Go, a free app offering customers cut-price meals – to go – just before closing time.
Too Good to Go was established in 2016 and typically discount meals are offered at half price or less.
The app is free to download and allows customers to see where unsold meals are available from pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Suffolk-based Greene King will join up in April after a successful trial in 19 pubs last year.

Greene King is the first pub company to pledge sending zero waste to landfill by 2020 and currently diverts 98.6% of waste from landfill.
It introduced compostable PLA straws across 1,750 pubs in August 2018.
The scheme will remove 30 million plastic drinking straws from use every year.
