Keeping fruits as a meal not a waste
Added on 11 July 2022
Through the joint efforts of Kölla UK, FareShare and FruPro, the UK fresh produce industry witnessed an effective donation campaign in a sector that needs it badly.
FruPro partner Kölla UK was able to donate 21 tonnes of Cat 1 (good quality) Satsuma tangerines, which equated to around 50,000 meal worth of food, with the average 420g per meal. Kölla UK labelled their produce for donation on the FruPro platform and FruPro were able to manage the rest.
Thanks to FareShare, the supplies were distributed to foodbank networks and charity outlets that exist to support those in need. Most individuals who received the fruit were of a low or no-income background, meaning that the impact supported people most vulnerable to food shortages.

No fresh produce should end up as waste
FruPro Co-founder and COO Ollie Morley-Fletcher said "We are constantly working to make the supply chain more efficient and urgently trying to reduce food waste.
"Supermarkets already have good connections to food banks and charities, but the rest of the supply chain is missing this link. So, our impact focuses on the whole supply chain.
