Today more than 1200 customers are saving in our 3 savior markets in Berlin and the Online Shop Foods. Over the last few months, more than 1,9 million products have been recycled. Not only has the product range increased from 30 to 400 products, but also the SIRPLUS team has grown from 15 to 70 savior hearts.

So now can be rescued diligently from home in the whole Federal Republic. By now we already have more than 200w different products in our online shop and every week new ones are added.
