Niftie's Social Supermarket

I am pleased to see such a great social enterprise like Nifties set up in Dover. Niftie's is a new social supermarket in Dover giving local people access to essential food items, with prices ranging from 10p to 75p.

The social supermarket, founded by local resident Nathaniel Richards is looking to tackle food poverty in the area by purchasing reduced products, such as short-dated or damaged food which is still perfectly edible and selling it on at a reduced price. Nathaniel is providing a great service to local people in need.

Almost 12 million tonnes of food is wasted in Britain each year, and a lot of this is perfectly good food supermarkets have thrown away. It is a fantastic idea to repurpose this food to help tackle food poverty.
