About FoodCloud

FoodCloud (CHY21177) is a fast-growing Dublin based social enterprise that has a vision for a world where no good food goes to waste. 30% of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted across the global food system. If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions, after the US and China. In Ireland, we waste one million tonnes of food annually and one in eight people do not have enough to eat.

FoodCloud uses innovative technology to connect supermarkets directly to charities in their local community and there are currently over 3,200 supermarkets donating to 8,000 charities across the UK and Ireland through the FoodCloud platform. FoodCloud Hubs connects food businesses with large volumes of surplus food to charities across Ireland through three warehouses in Dublin, Galway and Cork.  The equivalent of over 1.5 million meals are being rescued every month through both services.

You can find out more about FoodCloud’s operation through FoodCloud’s video and through our Youtube channel.
