As a food bank in Malaysia, we rescue ‘HALAL’ edible but surplus food and groceries from manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers. This includes product that is out of specification, close to expiry, incorrect labeling, damaged packaging, discontinued promotional products as well as excess stock and customer returns. If the surplus food is not rescued, much of this food would simply go to landfill.
With the expertise and developed comprehensive food handling system with long-term solution to rescue surplus food, ensuring safety for distribution & consumption we helped to reduced food wastage and consistently chanelling food to the needy. From our studies, we know that there are pockets of unused food within the food industry that can most certainly be put to and benefit the needy.
