FARESHARE GETS WONKY
As a start-up company, we have been fighting food waste for one year now, and we are believe that we are going to win the battle! While making delicious juices, we have already saved 85,000 KG of wonky produce, which otherwise might have been discarded. Our goal is to save 300 tonnes before May 2018.
Last week we made our first delivery of over 7.000 bottles to the local FareShare organization in Cardiff. We have been following the amazing work they do for quite a while now, and when we noticed that some of our bottles are short of date, we saw an amazing opportunity to support them.
FareShare will now redistribute our drinks to their network of charities and community groups, who provide meals to vulnerable people throughout Wales. This way, we are happy to support children’s clubs, lunch clubs for older people, homeless hostels, and refuges. Together we are turning 1+1 into 3 by tackling food waste, helping people in need and enabling everybody to get wonky at the same time!
Get Wonky founder, Maciek Kacprzyk, calls the new partnership ‘a great success‘ and says that he believes that the two organizations will work together over the next few decades. ‘All together we want to continue fighting to create a better UK’.
