PARKnSHOP is committed to reducing food waste, and has stringent internal procedures to reduce waste at source. We strive to forecast demand precisely, work with suppliers on surplus product return, and conduct end-of-day and close-to-expiry clearance to reduce waste meanwhile involving and benefitting customers.
Since 2012, PARKnSHOP has become the pioneer among supermarket chains in Hong Kong to launch a surplus food donation program. Over 200,000kg edible surplus has been contributed to date, which has helped Food Angel making over 600,000 hot meal boxes to feed the needy. The food donation program has now expanded to 100 stores, donated produce cover a wide category (except perishable items) includes vegetable, fruit, bread, poultry, meat and packaged food.
Besides, PARKnSHOP volunteers also helped preparing meal boxes at Food Angel’s central kitchen and distributed them to elders in need during home visits in order to spread love and care to them.
