Tesco becomes the first retailer to commit to donating all its surplus food to local charities across Ireland

FoodCloud & Tesco form innovative partnership

Tesco Ireland and FoodCloud launched a ground-breaking partnership in July 2014 that will see all surplus food from Tesco's 148 stores redistributed to charities and community groups through the use of FoodCloud's innovative app which was set up by two young social entrepreneurs, Iseult Ward and Aoibheann O’Brien.

The partnership follows a successful FoodCloud pilot programme in 18 Tesco stores, which ran from October 2013 to February 2014 and saw Tesco donate almost 60,000 meals or 27 tonnes of food to 38 charities.Since partnering with foodcloud, Drogheda Homeless Aid has been able to reduce its weekly food costs by an average of 30%.
