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!):

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!

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!
