How we can help you make money and do the right thingProfit and virtue. What's not to like?
Selling your surplus to us gives you a return on products you'd normally pay to get rid of.
But the benefits aren't just financial.
By being part of a more sustainable model we can help you live up to your Corporate Social Responsibility commitments too.
We can change the way you think about surplus and turn your waste disposal costs into a financial return. In fact, over the past 10 years, we've returned over £165 million to the industry in this way.
We redistribute the surplus we buy through Company Shop stores and staff shops. This helps our members - those who work in the food manufacturing supply chain, NHS and care and emergency services - to stretch their budgets further.
An Environmental Return
Consumers don't want to see good products going to waste. And, wherever possible, they want to see them used for the purpose they were originally intended. This view is echoed in the Government's updated Resources and Waste strategy, as well as in the priorities outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the UK Courtauld 2025 Commitment (of which we are founder signatories).
A Social Return
As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility commitments, many of our partners choose to donate, rather than sell, some or all of their surplus stock. These donations help support the amazing work of our award-winning social enterprise, Community Shop. Find out more about donating your surplus here.
