Robin Food

Robin Food

Robin Food includes vulnerable groups in the revalorisation of extra leftovers in the food chain.

The recent pandemic has resulted in enormous amounts of surplus leftovers such as vegetables and fresh fruits, causing difficulties for farmers. Secondly, a growing number of people do not have enough resources to feed themselves and their families due to the economic shock caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Robin Food will offer new life to those leftovers, transforming them into a new product. The product will be launched in Spain, The Netherlands and Belgium focusing on socially vulnerable groups.
