Originally from a food supplier background Nicole has first- hand experience of how food waste is generated and was therefore motivated to support re-distribution of surplus to help feed vulnerable people across the UK.
Working closely with the food industry, as Commercial Manager, Nicole is responsible in helping the food industry to divert their nutritional surplus to be used for social good. Alongside this Nicole is also responsible for liaising with FareShare’s large redistribution network to ensure frozen and chilled surplus is supplied readily to the third sector.
Overcoming huge barriers and implementing long-term strategies, Nicole has been responsible for ensuring our frozen infrastructure can support demand. Nicole continues to focus on ways to safely and securely divert more quality surplus frozen food from the food industry to more people in need.
Info about FareShare:
FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, with more than 30 warehouses across the UK. It takes food from the food industry that can’t be sold in shops, either because of packaging errors, a short shelf life or overproduction. That food, which is the same as the food you’d eat at home, is then redistributed through a network of 11,000 frontline organisations, across the UK such as homeless hostels, school breakfast clubs, domestic violence refuges, older people’s lunch clubs, food banks and hospices. Since the pandemic, FareShare has more than doubled its work, providing the equivalent of more than 2 million meals a week to people who might not otherwise eat.
