Labelling. Redistributing the iconic OXO cube.
At Premier Foods Worksop we are committed to preventing and reducing food waste in our business in line with the food waste hierarchy. However there are occasions throughout our processes where waste occurs and we want to do the right thing if this stock is ‘safe to eat‘. Working with Company Shop Group and their HHRS project team has allowed us to divert Oxo cubes that do not meet our specification because of quality defects in the packaging from AD to now feeding people. CSG are now taking this stock and through their processing capabilities are sorting and labelling the stock so it can be sold through their membership only stores. We see this first project as a catalyst for looking at other areas within our business where good food is going to waste and are confident this is just the start.
