What is DreamZero?
DreamZero is a social enterprise, born out of an interest in providing reusable options for event-goers and consumers.
In the fall of 2017, DreamZero had launched its first event at the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto. Since then we've grown to serve events of over 7,000 guests throughout Ontario including marathons, street festivals, sporting events, and concerts.
In August 2019 we piloted our takeout container program with restaurants, cafes, a grocery store, and 4 private office venues. Taking this learning we knew we needed to integrate an App into the program so that we could improve traceability. In early 2020 we began negotiating with Muuse of Singapore to bring their program to Canada. The Muuse program will launch in December 2020 beginning in Toronto.
Moving forward we plan to continue to supply food service providers with the very best quality cups, containers, and management practices required to have their own in-house programs and to bring to market the very best in third-party programs.
