Company Shop attends Mondelēz UK Managers Conference

Company Shop travelled to London yesterday, to meet with 450 Senior Managers from one of the largest global food manufacturing companies in Europe.

Sarah Dunwell, Director of Social and Environmental Affairs, represented the company at Mondelēz UK’s Managers Conference, held at the Sofitel near Heathrow Airport in London.

As the UK’s largest redistributor of surplus food, Company Shop has developed a strong relationship with Mondelēz over the last year. We were invited to host a stand at the conference to; engage more of the Mondelēz team and explain our business model; show how we are helping to promote food up the food waste hierarchy and; discuss how we can extend our joint working. In addition, Sarah outlined to delegates the fantastic social impact of Community Shop, Company Shop’s social enterprise and the UK’s first social supermarket, which opened its doors in December.

With both a focus on Mondelēz’s priorities for the year ahead and its commitment to employee volunteering and community engagement, Company Shop and Community Shop are perfectly placed to become long-term partners for the global manufacturer.

Speaking after the conference Sarah Dunwell said: "I was really impressed with the Mondelēz senior team’s focus on community engagement, volunteering and making a difference. I look forward to building our relationship with them further and we welcome their continued support for both Company Shop and Community Shop".
