We’re working hard to reduce food waste. Working in partnership with our suppliers and the charity FareShare, we have developed an innovative and sector-leading scheme to reduce food waste within our supply chain, while at the same time increasing food donations to charities across the UK. It’s all based around surplus stock at distribution centres and the choice between returning stock to suppliers or redistributing it to charity.
How does the scheme work?
In partnership with FareShare, our new scheme aims to take surplus stock and use it to feed those that need it most thus ensuring that perfectly good food does not go to waste. With around nine million cases being handled in our supply chain every week, this could amount to approximately 35,000 cases of food being distributed to charities every week.Read more.
