Since 1999, we have partnered with innocent to distribute their juices and smoothies which would otherwise go to waste, to vulnerable people as part of FareShare’s regular food provision.
innocent deliver their surplus drinks to 16 of our Regional Centres located across the UK, meaning that their surplus smoothies and juices benefit 6,723 charities and community groups from Bristol all the way to Edinburgh. Of these charities, 24% support children, 18% support people experiencing homelessness, and 7% support older people at centres such as lunch clubs.
We are delighted to announce that we have just hit a milestone in our partnership and between us have now distributed over 200 tonnes of surplus drinks.
We are thrilled to have achieved this success together, and we are excited to continue our partnership into 2017 and beyond.
Lindsay Boswell, CEO FareShare says: “innocent set a great example to the food and drink industry of how to ensure surplus food is put to good use. Not only do they give our network great product, they deliver their surplus to us, meaning we can concentrate our resources on getting deliveries out to the charities and community groups we work with.
“Over the course of our partnership, innocent have provided an amazing 200 tonnes of great quality smoothies and fruit juice to those who really need it, and it’s a partnership we’d like to see grow and grow.”
