Our mission

FoodCloud’s vision is for a world where no good food goes to waste

Our mission is to create a more sustainable food industry by helping to minimise food waste through more efficient practices and by creating innovative food rescue solutions.

FoodCloud is a mult-award winning social enterprise which enables the redistribution of surplus food from the food industry to the charity sector through two solutions – the FoodCloud Technology platform and FoodCloud Hubs. Over 12,800 tonnes of food has been received by over 7,500 charitable groups across Ireland and the UK, with over 28 million meals equivalent helping charities save money on their food bills.

FoodCloud exists first and foremost to reduce the environmental. social and economic impact of waste in the food supply chain. In the first instance we focus on redirectling surplus food in the food supply chain from disposal to consumption by people. We work with the food industry to help partners reduce their production of surplus food in the first place.

FoodCloud Hubs works with food businesses nationwide who have volumes of surplus food, such as farms, manufacturers and distributors to manage ad-hoc and regular supplies of surplus as efficiently as possible.

In some instances, businesses deliver directly to our Hubs in Cork, Galway and Dublin. In other circumstances, we collect from food businesses daily or weekly with our national fleet of refrigerated vans.

Once the food reaches the closest FoodCloud Hub, it is counted, uploaded onto our IT warehousing system and then segregated into storage. We implement a robust, industry standard food safety system to ensure that food is collected and delivered in a safe condition.

Each day our Hub team call our designated charity partners, go through all the products that we have in the Hub and take an order for delivery or collection the next day. Charity partners pay a nominal contribution towards the storage and transport of the food.

It’s a win-win! Charities have access to a supply of fresh food and business can contribute to their community in a meaningful and practical way by ensuring that no good food goes to waste.
