Giving food

FareShare is a tried and tested solution with over 20 years’ experience working with the food industry.

The food we redistribute is in date and good to eat, but has become surplus for simple reasons such as over-production, labelling errors or short shelf-life.

Our dedicated Food Team can work with you to achieve the most cost and time effective solution for dealing with your unsold food, enabling your business to use your surplus food for social good.
