The organisation has grown rapidly since its inception and has redistributed over 50 million meals across Ireland and the UK.
In October 2018, together with AIB, we undertook a €2.5 million investment in FoodCloud over three years. This is our biggest investment in a single enterprise to date and we are looking to achieving serious impact. We want to double the impact of FoodCloud and ensure that they are a sustainable social enterprise by the end of 2020. FoodCloud’s 2020 ambitions include a 100% increase in food rescued, a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions and a five-fold increase in people reached (130,000).
But their ambitions don’t stop there. Through their activities they are now looking to reduce Ireland’s food surplus by 25% by 2030. They are surely on track to realise a vision for an Ireland and a world where no good food goes to waste. This €2.5 million investment over three years in FoodCloud is in partnership with AIB and the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund.
