Customers in Gloucester and Cirencester are able purchase a Magic Bag in the Dobbies foodhall, filled with fresh and delicious surplus food that would ordinarily go to waste.

With an RRP of £12-14, the Magic Bags are available to buy for £3.99.

Archie Stewart, head of Food at Dobbies, said: "Our partnership with Too Good To Go is an innovative solution for customers and Dobbies to work together on a shared goal of reducing food waste. The Too Good To Go Magic Bags can be collected with ease from our Gloucester and Cirencester stores."

Paschalis Loucaides, UK country manager at Too Good To Go, said: "We're thrilled to have partnered with Dobbies and help reduce food waste. We've already seen brilliant traction for the Magic Bags on our app and know together we can make a huge difference in making sure food is eaten and enjoyed instead of wasted."
