Foodprint

Nottingham’s first social supermarket and a surplus food redistribution network

What is Foodprint?

Food waste shouldn’t coexist with people struggling to afford nutritious food. We tackle this imbalance directly, redirecting food that is perfectly fit for consumption but would otherwise go to waste. We are a social enterprise started by students at the University of Nottingham, acting as an intermediary between supermarkets, wholesalers, charities and the people of Nottingham to redistribute food. We also sell surplus at a greatly reduced price through our low-cost social supermarket in Sneinton.

our Goals

Reduce Food Waste

The UK throws away enough food to fill the Royal Albert Hall every single day, 60% of which is still fit for human consumption. This equates to 6 million tonnes of edible food per year.

Encourage Healthy Eating

Fruit and vegetables are often the most expensive food products, leaving those most in need with limited access and, in turn, relatively unbalanced diets.

Combat Food Poverty

A third of children in Nottingham live below the food poverty line. With increasing dependence on food banks, breakfast clubs, and social eating hubs, this problem is clearly a growing one.

We are looking for volunteer
store managers!

Do you have free time on your hands or just looking to help a good cause? Why not sign up to volunteer in our store – we need all the help we can get!

We are looking to collect food...

Are you a business with surplus food and nowhere to take it? Donate this food to Foodprint and help reduce food waste and food poverty in Nottingham.

our Solutions

Intercept

We collect from numerous partners all over the city, intercepting perfectly edible food before it is tossed into landfill. We even collect surplus food from the partners we deliver to when they can’t use it themselves. 

Redistribute

We weigh and sort the collections at our shop and redistribute it for free to those who need it most. The surplus that can’t be redistributed to food banks, community eating projects, or schools stays with us.

Sell

We sell the remaining surplus food in Nottingham’s first social supermarket as cheaply as is sustainably possible, subsidising fruit and vegetables in particular to make healthy eating as affordable as possible.

  • Last week at the @EnactusUK National Expo we asked attendees to estimate how much these three baskets of food would cost at Foodprint. Their average guess: £14.07 (with a high of £40)! The correct answer: £3.85... 😀 ♻️ #enactusnottingham #nottingham
