Use – Don’t Waste

Handing over leftovers to Foodsharing

To combat food waste consistently, we work together with the charitable organization foodsharing e. V. in Hamburg, Germany, which promotes the free transfer of undamaged foods compliant with food laws to social support establishments. The interim results are very promising: In 2016, we’ve been able to donate 5.2 tonnes of unused foods from our company canteen to local institutions that put them to use in their own kitchens to serve people in need. One of these charities is “CaFée mit Herz” in Hamburg’s St. Pauli district: This organization serves local unemployed and homeless people who rely on the help and support of others due to their personal living circumstances. We plan to continue this cooperation and at the same time to raise our employees’ awareness for a sustainable approach to food.
