NOPEX joins forces with City Harvest to deliver 1.5 tonnes of food to local communities

Natural & Organic Products Expo (NOPEX) is proud to announce its successful partnership with City Harvest, resulting in the distribution of an impressive 1.5 tonnes of food to communities in need. This collaboration is a collective effort to address food waste within the events industry and provides a solution to food insecurity across London.

“NOPEX has always been dedicated to supporting communities and fostering a culture of health and wellness. Through our partnership with City Harvest, a leading food rescue organisation in London, we were able to divert surplus natural and organic products from the Expo and redistribute them to charities addressing food insecurity. This initiative not only minimised waste but also made a positive impact to many individuals,” says Operations Manager Jamie Cieszynska.

City Harvest’s Impact Report states the exhibitor donations at NOPEX on 15th April made up a total of 3638 meals (delivered to charities and foodbanks feeding communities). This equated to 2.2 Tonnes of GHG Emissions prevented. This was organised by volunteers from City Harvest, who also had a stand at Natural & Organic Products Expo (on 14-15 April at ExCeL London) to discuss how exhibitors and show attendees can support their organisation.

“Free food, delivered by City Harvest to our community partners, brings more than nutritious value to Londoners in need: it frees up budgets for other social investments to support and enrich the lives and well-being of those most in need,” says Benjamin Logue, Food Sourcing Manager at City Harvest.

As well as this, Diversified Communications (organisers of Natural & Organic Products Expo) have on-going commitments to sustainability within the organisation including investing in a number of environmentally friendly projects across the world.
