About Company Shop

Company Shop is the UK’s largest redistributor of surplus food. We stop good food going to waste by rethinking, redefining and redistributing surplus. We do the hard work, to make redistribution simple for retailers, manufacturers and brands.

 That means:

  • protecting the brands our clients work hard to create
  • finding solutions to tricky surplus challenges
  • adding economic, social and environmental value across the supply chain

Company Shop redistributes surplus through a national network of staff shops on food manufacturing sites and standalone stores, operated on a strict membership-only basis.  Across the UK, Company Shop is saving tens of thousands of tonnes of food from going to waste every year. 

Membership of Company Shop sites and stores is open to those that work in food manufacturing and the emergency services.  Our strict membership policy helps to protect the brands our clients have worked hard to build, as our shoppers are educated about how and why surpluses exist.  This model has developed over the last 40 years, winning The Grocer Gold Award for Best Business Initiative in 2013, being shortlisted for the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards and the Food and Drink Federation Awards in 2014.

In 2015 Company Shop was awarded the UK’s highest business honour, receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its work to promote sustainability. In 2016 The Guardian listed Company Shop amongst its Sustainable Businesses of the Year and for the second year running the London Stock Exchange Group counted Company Shop as one of its 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
