Samsung is announcing a partnership with The Tetris Company to manufacture Samsung Stackers, a line of food storage and preservation containers inspired by the popular puzzle game Tetris, available in limited edition.
Now, everyone can enjoy playing real-life Tetris in their own refrigerator or pantry. Actually, allow me to correct myself – only if you happen to reside in France.
The storage containers will be available in seven varieties, each having a unique shape, arrangement, and color that may be familiar to fans of the Tetris video game. They allow for fun and easy storage. Consumer Note: All profits from sales will be donated to the European Food Bank Federation (a non-profit comprised of 335 food banks).
Samsung hopes to contribute to the fight against food insecurity and food waste. As a result, consumers will be feel satisfied as they stack these bright geometric designs, similar to the iconic game Tetris. As the holiday season approaches, Samsung Stackers are a great gift idea for video game fans, foodies, and ecologically aware consumers searching for something genuinely unique.
Samsung Stackers are available in sets of 7 containers for $28.35 USD.
The amount of food waste reported by customers has recovered and has returned to levels seen prior to the pandemic. As a result of poor management of their food resources and less charity than before the pandemic, three out of ten persons (30%) report to squandering more food than they did before the pandemic (20%).
According to the latest Food Waste Trends Survey conducted by Samsung in Europe, 46% of food purchased by European households is disposed of in the trash. That is the equivalent of nearly $4539.38 per household each year. When asked how to prevent food waste, more than half of respondents (54%) agreed that a more efficient food preservation system would allow them to reduce food waste, and two-thirds (64%) indicated that ‘they would be able to keep their food for longer if they could store it properly.
