A Maltese start-up called Freshy has been named one in ten of CNBC's hottest start-ups in the world. 

The company is a cloud + mobile platform, intended to help solve the problem of food waste, which according to their data makes up over 50% of total waste. Their platform aims at saving ready-made food – which makes up 23% of food waste – and is thrown away continually because of made-fresh-daily schemes. 

Their idea is to allow business to see the food they would otherwise discard, and to get customers to eat great ready-made food with a healthy conscience. 

Other shortlisted start-ups on the list include other awesome new initiatives. Example: MeetHere from USA – an app which helps people decide on a meeting location (obviously this is much more useful in countries where people are more than ten minutes away from each other). And Karz from Israel – an adaptive app which warns drivers of nearby reckless road behaviour. Have a look at the full list here.
