We take food safety seriously.
We adhere to food industry safety guidelines and our warehouses are audited internally and externally to ensure compliance. For full details on the ways we adhere to food safety guidelines, see the FareShare national website.
Our stock control systems mean we can guarantee traceability of each and every food item we receive and redistribute. In the unlikely event of a product recall, we can undertake this process on your behalf.
We can take your surplus food that:
- Is within its use-by or best before date
- Is covered or packaged appropriately
- Complies with all the food safety legislation, including The Food Safety Act 1990, The Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 and Regulation (EC) 852/2004 on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs
- Comes with a full ingredients list
All the food we receive gets redistributed to member charities, schools and community groups who are checked to ensure they meet our food safety and hygiene requirements.
