Potato supplier Albert Bartlett and food distribution network FareShare are celebrating a decade of working in partnership.
The Scottish produce firm first started working with FareShare in Edinburgh in 2006, with the charity thanking it for a “steady and reliable stream of potatoes” that has contributed to 2.6 million meals.
FareShare CEO Lindsay Boswell said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have reached our ten-year anniversary with Albert Bartlett. This is a huge achievement, which goes a long way to ensuring that the charities and community groups we support are able to provide hot, nutritious meals for people in need.”
FareShare collects the company’s surplus potatoes and distributes them among charity and community groups to help feed those in need.
Marketing manager at Albert Bartlett, Kirsty McMillan, said: “We are delighted to have been able to support FareShare consistently for such a long period. It is a really worthwhile cause and we are happy to be doing our best to help minimise food waste. We look forward to the next ten years.”
