Women in Tech is a four-part series presented by Samantha McCaughren, Business Editor of the Sunday Independent.

Samantha speaks to Irish women involved in tech who are dispelling myths and breaking down barriers.

On this week's episode, she meets Iseult Ward, co-founder of Foodcloud, the food waste distribution platform, that in just seven years has already distributed 22,000 tonnes of food, moving meals every 28 minutes and helping over 9,100 charitable groups in Ireland and UK.

Samantha spoke to Iseult about the original idea, getting it off the ground, scaling in Ireland and internationally, as well as the growing issue of food poverty and waste.
