Does OLIO compete with charities?

In a word 'no'! And in fact we are delighted to have partnered with Fareshare, the UK's leading charitable distributor of food and we also work with local food banks and homeless shelters. OLIO's Food Waste Heroes Programme complements the work of the charitable sector in that it re-distributes food that cannot be absorbed by the charitable sector - either because of the location of the food, it's short shelf-life, the small quantities involved, or if the food is past its Best Before Date, is opened, is hot or chilled.
