A one-stop-shop for food and drink manufacturers

We can help food and drink manufacturers, and retailers to reduce food and packaging waste, increase recycling rates, and reduce emissions at each stage of the product lifecycle. Our sustainable solutions enable the circular economy and drive both commercial and social value. We can help to improve recycling rates of packaging, identify and redistribute surplus, and process leftovers or food no longer fit for human consumption to turn it into energy or compost.

Why choose Biffa?

  • We help reduce food waste and emissions
    Food waste is the 3rd largest source of greenhouse emissions, after China and the US. We can identify and redistribute surplus food via Company Shop Group, preventing it from becoming food waste and reducing emissions. We are trusted by the UK’s top retailers, manufacturers and brands, and are BRC certified (A Grade) against the Global Standard for Food Safety (Issue 8: August 2018).
  • We can take the surplus others cannot
    We have the capabilities to take anything from delisted and mislabelled products to damaged stock. We relabel and repack it, before redistributing it to help others. We also have approval from all major retailers to redistribute their own-label surplus products. Plus we can ensure that your products are traceable back to us using approved brand disclaiming methods.
  • We help families and communities with affordable food
    Our Company Shop members enjoy a unique way of shopping, offering them surplus products from well-known brands at amazing prices, helping stretched budgets go further. Our Community Shop provides members with vital access to deeply discounted food, as well as life-changing learning and development programmes.
  • We have the scale and expertise to create tailored, fully circular solutions
    With facilities across the UK, specialists in everything from packaging to redistribution and hazardous, we can design solutions that reach across the whole product lifecycle to reduce waste and emissions. We have the capabilities to meet the needs of organisations and businesses of all shapes and sizes, creating closed loop processes that drive value for our customers.
