Premier Foods and Fareshare launch five-year partnership

Premier Foods and charity FareShare have unveiled a new long-term partnership aimed at tackling food waste and supporting those in food poverty.

As part of the multifaceted partnership Premier Foods will provide food donations directly to FareShare, which will be redistributed to nearly 9,500 charities and community groups in its network. Premier Foods will also provide funding to enable FareShare to redistribute food across its network of 31 warehouses across the UK.

Catherine David, director of collaboration and change at WRAP said: “We’re delighted by this announcement from our partners Premier Foods and FareShare, who are showing real leadership in the fight on food waste. The redistribution of food to people who need it is a good thing for society, and for the planet. Since WRAP began working in this area in 2015, levels of redistribution have increased more than three-fold and by 2021 around 426,000 tonnes of surplus food had been redistributed. We call on more businesses to collaborate to ensure that no good food goes in the bin.”
