It was great to visit Company Shop in Wester Hailes today to hear about their new store here and their work in the local community to tackle food poverty and food waste.
Company Shop take surplus food and other goods from supermarkets and sell it to members for a big discount. Their products are just as high quality as you would find elsewhere, but might have been ordered in excess or mislabelled and would otherwise go to waste.
Membership is open to people on means-tested benefits and those working in sectors including the NHS and social care, emergency services and consumer goods supply chain. Find out more here: https://www.companyshopgroup.co.uk/membership
