Over a partnership that’s lasted almost a decade, Greencore has provided good-to-eat surplus food, such as chilled meals and prepared foods, that would otherwise have gone to waste to our network of nearly 9,500 charities and community groups based around the UK.
We have worked with Greencore’s manufacturing sites to build local relationships to redistribute surplus food to local communities. Greencore hopes to expand this across their entire business to get more of their surplus food to people who need it most, rather than letting it go to waste.
Lindsay Boswell, chief executive at FareShare, said: “We’re so grateful to the commitment and effort from Greencore to help deliver the equivalent of four million meals to the charities and community groups we support. Their impact is testament to this long-standing partnership which has made a huge difference to people in need across the country.”
Krissy Polo-Tolley, Sustainability Advisor (Waste and Food Surplus) at Greencore said: “We are glad that working in partnership with Fareshare has helped so many communities, providing them food during these difficult times. The redistribution of food surplus is at the top of our values and we are committed to help alleviating food poverty in our local communities”.
