BBP Strategical Workshop

BBP workshop Best Before Project

As all the organizations, BBP has a structure and needs medium and long term plans. That is why we decided to attend a workshop that Matt kindly organized for us!
Will it work? Will we go ahead with our mission? Only time can tell, but we are faithful and will put all our effort to make it happen!

Vegetables saved from Landfill!

BBP food waste redistribution

Hello everybody!

Although we are focused on "Best Before" labeled food, sometimes it happens that we occour in large quantities of other kinds of food that needs to be saved!

Here is an example!
about 700kg of tasty vegetables saved from landfill thanks to the joint action of BBP and Feeding 5K, and distributed to CFE (Community Food Enterprise) and to Rad Cross

Following there are some pictures of the action (sorry for the quality!):

Goodbye Tottenham storage!

BBP storage Tottenham Hale

Yes, we had to vacate our garage in Tottenham Hale.This storage has been our first, and we used it for 3 years; loads of food passed through it and the last stored food has been taken by Red Cross, Woodberry Downs Baptist Church and some by people who run the kitchen in Harlesden

Closing this storage is not a simple logistical matter for us. Makes us think that is already years that we are going on with our project, and we need to be dynamic and focus on the main goal of Best Before Project, although it's not easy and obstacles and changes are constantly incoming.

Great news from EU parliament

EU parliament news Best Before Project Food Labeling food waste The independent The Telegtaph

Great news!!!!
"The European Union is poised to scrap compulsory “best before” labels on coffee, rice, dry pasta, hard cheeses, jams and pickles to help reduce the estimated 100 million tons of food wasted across Europe each year."
This is exactly what we are fighting for during the last three years!
