Yeo Valley turns surplus plums into Left-Yeovers yogurt

Brand partnerships YEO VALLEY

20 October 2016

A limited edition yogurt made with surplus plums that might otherwise have gone to waste will go on sale during November, with 10p from every pot being donated to FareShare to support our work tackling food waste and UK hunger.

The first limited edition Left-Yeovers variety, made from strawberries and figs, went on sale last October and raised more than £12,000 for FareShare.

Yeo Valley’s new Plum and Custard Left-Yeovers yogurt will be sold exclusively in Tesco stores, giving a new lease of life to leftover fruit and reminding shoppers to be creative with their leftovers in order to reduce food waste.

Every £1 raised by the promotion will enable us to redistribute enough good, surplus food for frontline charities such as homeless shelters, children’s breakfast clubs and older people’s lunch clubs, to serve up four nutritious meals for vulnerable people.

Caley Eldred, Director of Fundraising at FareShare, said: “The Left-Yeovers range is a great reminder that leftovers don’t have to go to waste, with a bit of thought they can be turned into something truly delicious. What’s more, every pot sold will help FareShare to redistribute more surplus food to people in need, so we hope shoppers will snap them up when they go on sale.”

Left-Yeovers Plum and Custard (450g) will be available exclusively from Tesco stores nationwide from November 2016.
