How FoodCloud Hubs works

FoodCloud is an Irish social enterprise that exists first and foremost to reduce the environmental, social and economic impact of food waste by redistributing surplus food to our network of Charity and Community Group partners.

FoodCloud Hubs Solution

FoodCloud Hubs works with food businesses nationwide who have volumes of surplus food, such as farms, manufacturers and distributors to manage ad-hoc and regular supplies of surplus as efficiently as possible.

In some instances, businesses deliver directly to our Hubs in Cork, Galway and Dublin. In other circumstances, we collect from food businesses daily or weekly with our national fleet of refrigerated vans.

Once the food reaches the closest FoodCloud Hub, it is counted, uploaded onto our IT warehousing system, and then segregated into storage. We implement a robust, industry standard food safety system to ensure that food is collected and delivered in a safe condition.

Each day our Hub team call our designated charity partners,go through all the products that we have in the Hub and take an order for delivery or collection the next day. Charity partners pay a nominal contribution towards the storage and transport of the food

It’s a win-win! Charities have access to a supply of fresh food and business can contribute to their community in a meaningful and practical way by ensuring that no good food goes to waste.
