Welcome to Company Shop

Company Shop is the UK’s largest redistributor of surplus food. Under the leadership of John Marren, for over 40 years we have provided a sustainable approach to tackling the inevitable surpluses produced in the UK food supply chain.

Working with Britain’s biggest retailers, brands, manufacturers, producers and growers to make redistribution simple, we now divert over 30,000 tonnes of food from going to waste every year, and in doing so are helping the food sector reduce its environmental impact, whilst having social impact.

Company Shop redistributes surplus through a national network of staff shops, standalone stores and ‘click and collect’ services, providing good food to members that work in the food manufacturing industry and emergency services.

In December 2013 Company Shop launched Community Shop: a new social enterprise which is empowering individuals and building stronger communities, by realising the social potential of surplus food.
