Tessa Clarke


Tessa Clarke is Co-Founder and CEO of OLIO, a free app tackling the problem of food waste by connecting neighbours with each other, and volunteers with local businesses, so that surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. Since launching in 2016, over one million people have joined OLIO and together shared almost two million portions of food. OLIO also publishes, a website and newsletter that aggregates all the best zero waste news from around the world.
