FareShare works with Best Food Logistics to ensure that any food that might go to waste within their operations is diverted to feed people in need.
Best Food Logistics provides distribution and supply chain services to larger operators in the foodservice industry, including many well-known restaurant chains such as PizzaExpress, Ask Italian, Zizzi, Pizza Hut and Nando’s.
The team at Best Food Logistics want their customers to do the right thing with their surplus food, so that all in-date surplus food can benefit people in need rather than go to waste. Since 2009, the company give a financial incentive for their customers to make their surplus food available to charity, by offering a reduced rate to deliver to FareShare compared to the cost of disposal.
Best Food Logistics then deliver their customer’s stock at no cost to FareShare and add this to existing scheduled routes, saving road miles and carbon emissions.
This scheme has enable FareShare to receive great quality, surplus food from the likes of PizzaExpress, Ask Italian, Zizzi, Pret A Manger, and Nando’s.
Alix Cunningham, National Account Manager at Best Food Logistics says:
“We actively work with our customers to ensure that any suitable surplus food is delivered to FareShare depots across the country. We and our customers value the work that FareShare do and are committed to continuing to work with them to minimise food waste.”
