The Asda-FareShare partnership is two years old. In 2013, through close collaboration between suppliers, logistics partners and FareShare, a process was introduced to divert surplus products appearing at depot level to people in need through the FareShare model – rather than being returned to suppliers.

FareShare

In two years, 233,000 cases of food that would have gone to waste have been redistributed by FareShare. This has created over 2.3 million meals and benefited over 1,600 charities!
