news BBP Best Before Project food waste Diageo charities redistribution

More and more companies are joining the efforts to reduce the massive amount of unnecessary food waste we currently create in our society.

We’d like to thank, among others, Diageo (www.diageo.co.uk) for taking the time to stop, think and donate the whole of the stock from their on-site mock convenience store to Best Before Project for redistribution among charities in need – the charities very extremely grateful for the items! Many companies simply throw unwanted stuff away…so well done and thanks again!

Best before, still good after – not only food :)

We are in constant need of sealable storage boxes in which we temporarily store all the lovely food donated to us by businesses willing to go the extra mile not to waste food before we we redistribute it among local charities.
