The environmental benefit
The Company Shop business model offers a recognised 'best practice' solution that solves residual stock issues and reduces landfill. We offer a sustainable, efficient and ethical alternative. Over 16 million tonnes of food is wasted annually. About 40% of this is sent to Britain's landfill sites. A large proportion of this is wholesome food within its sell-by-date.
Company Shop helps the supply chain to redistribute that surplus, uphold the food waste hierarchy and achieve a positive environmental impact. Each year, we estimate that the actions of our business save approximately 108 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions – the equivalent of that produced by a small British town.
