Culina helping Fareshare tackle food waste

Liverpool, UK: Culina Logistics is working with food redistribution charity FareShare.

“We already have some big brands that have agreed to contribute stock to FareShare as opposed to disposing of it and we are adding more daily,” said Sian Davies, Culina Logistics supervisor, who leads the project.

“By sending surplus stock to FareShare, Culina Logistics clients are actually saving money.

“We find that the biggest barrier for food companies sending surplus stock to charities is the cost of transporting it.
“If making your company’s surplus food available to FareShare is actually cheaper thank disposing of it, then it’s a no brainer. This is what Culina Logistics have made possible for our clients. This is something we want to highlight, so we can encourage others in the industry to follow suit, essentially making it easy and financially viable to do the right thing with surplus food.”

Mark Varney, director of network development at FareShare added: “So far nineteen Culina Logistics client companies are now providing their surplus food to FareShare which is fantastic progress. The brilliant thing about our relationship is that Culina Logistics customers aren’t just made aware of FareShare, they are also incentivised to work with us.”
