Imperfection depends on the eyes with which you see:
we produce 100% natural and high quality preserves from food surpluses and imperfect produce.
WE FIGHT FOR A BETTER FOOD USAGE
Fundació Espigoladors is a non-profit organisation which fights against food waste and losses, while empowering people at risk of social exclusion from a transformative, participative, inclusive and sustainable way.
We are a social enterprise model which works for three social needs at once and interconnects them: fighting for a better food usage, guaranteeing the right to a healthy diet and creating job opportunities for collectives at risk of social exclusion.
HOW WE DO IT
In Espigoladors we give second opportunities to ugly and imperfect fruits and vegetables and to beautiful people.
We harvest fruits and vegetables that are not suitable for the market through gleanings with the help of volunteers.
Most of the fruits and vegetables that we collect are distributed to social entities in order to reach people who do not have access to them.
We transform the other recovered produce into preserves while providing job opportunities to people at risk of social exclusion.
We create a citizen movement through raising awareness and education, promoting a change of social consciousness towards a culture of making the most of food.
