Work With Us

We are working with…

 

As a Cooperating Business, Foodsharing gives you the opportunity to have a responsible way of dealing with food you can’t use anymore.

  • With us you can save money and time. You save on costs for garbage disposal and you save time sorting out food waste and disposal. The Foodsavers sort food by ‘eatable’ and ‘not eatable’ before they share it.

  • With us you are flexible. Our Foodsavers are available during the day, on weekends and public holidays. To make it as convenient as possible for you we usually fix a date and time to collect the food. But we are also able to jump in if you need us because of a broken fridge or a wrong delivery etc.

  • As a cooperating business you and your store receive more positive attention from your customers. Give your customers the option to purposely choose the store which deals with their food in a responsible manner. We are more than happy to advertise your cooperation with Foodsharing on our homepage and FB pages.

  • Furthermore, you do not need to be worried about legal risks since your are protected by the Food Donation Act 1996. Further we as a organization declare bindingly to transport and store the groceries in a hygienic manner. Further, we declare bindingly to not sell the food.
