“Absolutely do it”

To any business considering working with Olio, I’d say absolutely do it. I think it’s such a good operation to have in store – and personally I really believe in it, too. Businesses should all be using something to get rid of their edible waste, and using it to feed their local communities.

“It’s great to see the impact of our surplus food”

Olio and its volunteers are great to work with. Volunteers are flexible and fit around our needs and those of our businesses. It’s great to see within our monthly reports the impact our surplus food donations are making to the wider community within the local area.

“I have been amazed”

Since our partnership began I have been amazed at what has been delivered. Olio has shown pace and strength in adapting to a continuously changing market. This, along with the variations in technologies you have managed to adapt to in order to integrate seamlessly with our systems, are rare skills amongst emerging companies.

Food Surplus & Waste Operations Project Manager, Tesco

“Wonderful initiative”

We spent years scouring the market for a partner with the necessary food handling processes to redistribute our unavoidable waste, and Olio was the first we came across that had the necessary capabilities. If more companies engaged with this wonderful initiative the amount of food wasted could be dramatically reduced, not to mention the enormous impact it can have in addressing issues relating to poverty and hunger in communities.

Peter Marsh

Former CEO, Planet Organic

“Tackle food waste, protect the plant and help families”

We are excited to be working in partnership with Olio and Anglian Learning to make sure any food that can be is distributed within the local community to help as many families as possible. We are extremely proud of how Olio enables us to help tackle food waste, protect the plant and help families.
