We’re proud to work with some of the leading names in the food industry who share our passion for tackling waste and inequality for a more sustainable planet.

They’re helping us to shed a light on the biggest problems and opportunities around food, hunger and waste while setting new standards amongst the industry for compassionate, sustainable ways to do business and help our fellow Londoners.
