Partnering with leading retailers and food companies, non-profit organisations, government, and wider business communities in four countries (Ireland, the UK, the Czech Republic and Slovakia), FoodCloud help to drive progress towards a circular economy for our food systems; empowering organisations, communities and individuals to thrive, and ultimately creating a world that is kinder to its people and our planet.
In 2022, FoodCloud increased their impact by 35% across all countries – providing over 52 million meals and avoiding over 70,000 tonnes of CO2eq, and were awarded Charity of the Year at the Charities Institute of Ireland’s Excellence Awards.
