Our Regional Logistics Solution has launched with an ambitious target of collecting 780 tonnes of surplus over the next 12 months. This is in-date food that would not otherwise be redistributed because of a lack of logistics, capacity or time. Our bold new experiment is being run in partnership with WRAP & FareShare. Andy and Hannah will be working with an exclusive group of Food Partners to collect their surplus both regularly and ad-hoc to test the solution and capture its progress. The trial is sponsored by WRAP’s Waste Reduction Fund for innovative new solutions.
The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
