As part of our Care Programme, we provide both financial and in-kind support to charities around the world. Jeff Williams, our Director of Business Development was delighted to spend a day with the team at one of our much-loved charities Fareshare to support them with business improvement and their journey to Enterprise Excellence.
FareShare redistributes quality surplus foods from across the food industry to over 9500 frontline charities and community groups. It is made up of 18 independent organisations. These charities support school breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs, homeless shelters, and community cafés. Every week they provide enough food to create almost a million meals for the most vulnerable people in the UK.
Andy Parkinson, Head of Food & Operations at FareShare Midlands said:
“Many thanks to Jeff Williams of S A Partners for spending the day with us all at Fareshare Midlands depot in Nottingham. Jeff shared with us the popular and successful ‘Enterprise Excellence Approach’ that S A Partners have implemented in the UK food industry and other sectors around the world, and brought it to life for us in the context of the work we do in the food industry. It was great to see how this model has been successfully implemented in numerous food manufacturers and retailers through the coaching and development of people by Jeff and his colleagues at S A Partners.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jeff in various previous organisations, and his enthusiasm and ‘story-telling’ has not diminished over the years! We look forward to embarking on our own journey here at FareShare in the Midlands, and are delighted that Jeff has offered his support voluntarily as a guide and ‘wise owl’!
