Bakery donation in South Korea

16 Jul 2013

Addressing food waste and supporting those in need

On 16th July our team in South Korea launched a bakery donation programme in partnership with food bank ‘Joy of Sharing’. Over 400 volunteers were involved in the launch event. 

Through this partnership, we will be donating surplus bakery products to people in need in the local community – the elderly, children in welfare centres and vulnerable family groups. We hope to donate over 500,000 bags of bakery products each year, helping to feed over 800,000 people.

This is another good example of how Tesco is addressing the issue of food waste by putting surplus food to good use.
