    2 Sisters Food Group launches second phase of industry-first partnership

    2 Sisters Food Group

    Leading Food manufacturer 2 Sisters Food Group has today (5) announced the second phase of its a ground-breaking partnership with customer M&S and FareShare, the food charity, with a further 1.5 million meal servings donated to those in need.

    In an industry first, the meals will be made from three 2 Sisters’ factory locations across the UK to FareShare directly. The Vegetable Curry, Carrot & Coriander Soup and Family Sized Pizza meals use surplus ingredients which might otherwise go to waste, such as fresh vegetables.

    These meals are nutritionally balanced to serve between two and four people and all meals will be freshly prepared with a guarantee of four days life from the day of donation. The meals are made at company factories in South Wales (RF Brookes), Nottingham (Pizza Factory) and Grimsby (Recipe Dish).

    According to the latest Food Foundation tracker, 15% of UK households – equivalent to approximately eight million adults and three million children – have experienced food insecurity in 2024, as the cost-of-living crisis continues to hit the pockets of low-income families. It is estimated this figure has doubled in the last three years.

    Ranjit Singh Boparan, founder and President of 2 Sisters Food Group, said: “We continue to do the right thing by partnering with our customer M&S and creating these nutritious meal servings to help those that need it most.

    “This second phase utilises surplus ingredients and what a better way to bring some good from this by creating quality food that have the M&S seal of approval.  Helping to feed everyone in need with a nutritious meal is central to how we now think at our business and I am delighted to be leading on this with our partners.”

    Alex Freudmann, Managing Director of M&S Food, added, “Making great quality, delicious and nutritious food is what we do at M&S Food and we’ve been inspired by the Coronation Food Project to go further to redistribute more meals than we ever have before. By utilising ingredients, capacity and time available within our supply chain, we’re able to donate so much more product and ultimately help more people. I’m delighted to be able to come together with our supplier partners to support FareShare throughout the year.”
