Through the app, consumers can discover the nearest Phenix business partners, choose a business and a type of basket—vegetarian, organic, halal, etc.—safely pay, and receive alerts with their pickup time. Collaborating with one global leader in beverages, the company has helped save 2.3 million drinks from the garbage bin during Covid-19.
