About Us older

What?

Collect

We will collect food from supermarkets, local businesses and wholesalers that would otherwise be thrown away- if packaging is damaged for example. We also work with local allotments and collect surplus fruit and vegetables for our store.

Sell for Less

Food is then made available to the public directly through our social supermarket as cheaply and sustainably as possible. We will then use a discount scheme to further subsidise food for those most in need.

Redistribute

We also will work with local social eating organisations and community cafes to ensure they have access to food they need and to ensure food they don’t need doesn’t go to waste.

Why?

Sustainability

With a rapidly  increasing global population sustainable eating is more important than ever before. Developing a system where resources are used as efficiently as possible is one step towards a stable future.

Waste Managment

Transporting and producing food requires fuel and uneaten food is the main contributor to atmospheric methane levels. With 40 thousand tonnes of food being thrown away in the UK alone, the scale of avoidable pollution is difficult to contemplate. 

Affordable Food

Foodprint hopes to provide affordable food to those that need it, noone should have to struggle to put food on the table particularly in such a prosperous country.
