An idea born out of the pandemic in Switzerland. As the main online supermarkets were saturated these passionate foodies started searching online for other food shops.

FOODSPOTTERS believes that there are new ways to connect with small businesses, local producers and next-door shops so that we all change our habits of consumers and go towards a better, sustainable way of living.
