Driving Research & Innovation case study: Foodprint

A Nottingham social enterprise which helped to inspire the development of an award-winning sweet treat made using bread waste hopes that the product will one day appear on shop shelves.

The University of Nottingham student-led social enterprise Foodprint collects food that supermarkets would otherwise have thrown away and sells it via a ‘social supermarket’ in Sneinton as part of a surplus food redistribution network.

By far the biggest issue facing Foodprint when it comes to its own waste, however, is the problem of what to do with surplus bread that it cannot sell or redistribute.
