Our initiatives

Our charitable work is not simply part of what we do; it drives and defines us. We unite people across the food and grocery industry, harnessing the power of our collective expertise and passion.

Together, we are boosting the confidence and capability of those currently working in the food and grocery industry, along with those looking to join us in the future. We are also taking action to achieve our shared vision of a future with less waste and healthier diets, creating secure and sustainable public benefit through sharing best practice.

We are proud to be making our mark as an industry.
