Food waste superstore opens fifth outlet in Merseyside

A need for North West England's food manufacturers to tackle their edible waste has led to Company Shop, the UK's largest redistributor of surplus food and household products, opening its 5th new superstore in St Helens, Merseyside.

St Helens opening 1 copyChairman and Founder of Company Shop, John Marren, and St Helens South and Whiston MP, Marie Rimmer, were joined by local politicians and industry stakeholders to cut the ribbon.

Company Shop, and its social enterprise, Community Shop, work with major retailers, manufacturers and brands across the country to stop more than 50 million items of good food and household products going to waste each year.

The opening of the store follows the high-level food industry summit, hosted by Company Shop in October, where the Group announced it would be bringing the pioneering model to tackle food surplus to the Liverpool City Region. The summit was supported by Walker Morris and compered by KPMG.

The new Company Shop store will stock good food and household products at approximately 1/3 of the normal retail price from the full range of Company Shop's industry partners, including Waitrose, M&S, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda, Aldi, Ocado, Morrisons, Iceland, Nestle, Bakkavor, Greencore, Heinz and Muller. Company Shop is a membership-only store, with access open to people who work in food manufacturing, the emergency services or the NHS.

John Marren, Chairman and Founder of Company Shop, said: "The new store, and expanding into the Liverpool City Region more widely, will allow us to ensure that we are reaching even more families and redistributing even more food – stopping good food going to waste.

"We have always been motivated to be different and to make a difference and we are really excited to be bringing our model to the North West."

Marie Rimmer, MP for St Helens South and Whiston, said: "I'm delighted to welcome this innovative investment in the St Helens district of Sutton which will lower the cost of shopping for members and reduce food waste, and landfill, whilst creating local jobs. I do hope people take full of advantage of membership and wish the venture well."
