Leading tech firm Gander is announcing a new service partnership agreement with C-Store Collective, a renowned name in the convenience and forecourt sector. This strategic partnership aims to expand the reach and enhance the availability of Gander’s product to a broader customer base. 

The collaboration brings together C-Store Collective’s extensive experience and their ability to revolutionise the commercial success of their clients, with the tech of Gander, to drive reduced-to-clear food into the world’s biggest channels.

Damien Corcoran, Chief Operating Officer at Gander, said: “We are excited to be working with C-Store Collective. Their industry knowledge and experience is phenomenal, and they know how to make sure convenience stores are structured, both strategically and tactically, to provide amazing service and, in turn, profitability.  Gander will be a great addition to the C-Store Collective toolkit, using technology to drive more sales and footfall through our reduced-to-clear local feed; all whilst reducing waste and doing our bit to save the planet.

“The partnership is set to leverage the strengths of both companies, combining Gander’s expertise in food waste management with C-Store Collective’s extensive market presence. Together Gander and C-Store Collective will drive efficiency, improve profit and grow sales, whilst helping shoppers beat the cost of living crisis and preventing food from going to waste.”

Gander has become one of the fastest growing tech innovators. The SaaS company recently announced exceptional results from a trial with the Snappy Shopper home delivery app. The collaboration proved how successful the integration is for retailers looking to increase basket spend and reduce wastage costs within their own stores, and for customers looking to find reduced to clear goods locally.

For the second consecutive year, Gander has been nominated for the prestigious Earthshot Prize 2024, a global environmental award launched by Sir David Attenborough, Prince William, and The Royal Foundation. The prize seeks solutions to critical environmental issues like climate change, air pollution, and biodiversity loss.

Jonathan Rons, Co-Founder of C-Store Collective, added: “This partnership is an extension to Gander’s existing relationship with the C-Store Collective. Gander’s solution drives sustainability and reduces food waste by enabling retailers to sell more reduced food, providing a win-win for retailers and shoppers. With Ganderlytics, the powerful analytical tool as part of the package, retailers will be able to track their improved performance when selling reduced food. 

“We are delighted to strengthen our existing relationship with the Gander team and being their go-to contact for the convenience channel. We are looking forward to helping our clients solve problems they may have with waste, reductions, compliance, and driving sales.”

Claire Goddard, Marketing Manager at Pricewatch, was introduced to Gander by C-Store Collective. She said: “Partnering with Gander through C-Store Collective has revolutionised our sell through rate and waste reduction. Since 2021, we’ve sold 260,551 reductions and seen a 51% increase in our sell-through rate, thanks to strategic guidance from C-Store Collective. The Gander app has helped our customers save money, reduced our food waste, and saved 177 tonnes of CO2, underscoring our commitment to sustainability. This collaboration has significantly enhanced our operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.”

As part of the agreement, Gander will support C-Store Collective ensuring seamless integration and outstanding customer service retail customers are accustomed to. Both companies are committed to a collaborative approach, with ongoing efforts to explore new opportunities and drive success.
