When we collect surplus food from a business and additional allergen information is available, we will display this information below in the form of a link to the business’ website or menu, or a list of products and their ingredients and/or allergens.
Any food from a business that is not listed here will either be 1️⃣ fully labelled, 2️⃣ whole fruit or vegetables, 3️⃣ donated by a business that operates in a country where allergen information is not required, or 4️⃣ shared by a volunteer who has been given a physical copy of the allergen information at the time of collection.
If in doubt, do not hesitate to message the volunteer about the format and location of the allergen information of the product you are interested in, or to ask them any questions when you arrange and/or meet for pick-up.
We take our responsibility to supply safe food very seriously and, although we encourage our Food Waste Heroes (volunteers) to take all reasonable steps to keep different foods separate, we cannot guarantee any item is allergen free.
For more information, you can visit our FAQ on General allergen information.
To add allergen information or alert us to incorrect allergen information, click “Report an issue” on “My Collections” in the Volunteer Hub.
Please note that Costa Coffee products that have been taken out of their original packaging and displayed among other food types are at risk of cross contamination. Different food types within the display cabinet and throughout the store may come into contact with other products during display, therefore, Costa Coffee cannot guarantee that these products are allergen free.
For allergen info for unpackaged products, please refer to the Sainsbury‘s website: http://help.
