Tesco / Olio

Tesco partners with food sharing app to cut food waste.

Tesco has partnered with food sharing app and social enterprise OLIO to help reduce food waste in stores across the UK in a move which should help feed more people in crisis in the local community.

The new partnership builds on Tesco’s existing food surplus donations programme, including its Community Food Connection scheme with FareShare, which already sees it donate 2 million meals every month to food charities across the UK.
