THE FOOD BANK
The Food Bank collects products from producers and distributors of food that, for one reason or another, can not be sold, but which is still 100% good and suitable for consumption. Maybe because the product is phased out, there is excess stock, the THT date is too close to sell the product anymore through regular channels. Products of which the expiry date has already expired are neither collected nor provided by the Food Bank, unless the supplier submits a written statement in which the quality of the product is guaranteed by that supplier and that he assumes responsibility for this. Food bank Goed Ontmoet performs its activities in accordance with the rules of the food safety manual. By satisfying sufficient compliance from an approved Hygiene Code, Goed Ontmoet meets its legal HACCP obligations from the regulation EG852 / 200 and has an inspection certificate.
The collected products are distributed weekly to families who meet the criteria formulated by the Food Bank. Goed Ontmoet guarantees that the donated products will no longer be used for commercial purposes, but only to help people in need.
