Kellogg’s Australia and Yume, an online B2B marketplace for the sale of quality surplus food, have announced a new partnership which enables Kellogg’s to sell any surplus raw materials that become available during the manufacturing process through to the Yume platform.

The Yume platform enables food suppliers such as primary producers and manufacturers to safely sell their quality surplus products directly to buyers in the foodservice industry.

Kellogg’s is the first Australian manufacturer to take the Yume Pledge.

Tamara Howe, Director of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, at Kellogg’s Australia and New Zealand, said that partnering with Yume is another way for the company to continue tackling the issue of food insecurity, and ensure that no food or ingredients we purchase go to waste.

“We know that the ingredients that go into our foods use our natural resources – including water and energy, plus our farmers work incredibly hard to grow these foods for us. Therefore, we need to make sure all of that hard work and resources don’t go to waste,” said Howe.

We have a multifaceted approach to minimise food waste in our business. This includes prevention through processes to reduce the risk of surplus stock & ingredients through to donating finished foods that are nearing their best before dates, but still good to eat, to people in need through our charity partners.”

Yume which works with hundreds of leading food manufacturers has sold over 1,100,000kgs of quality surplus food, returning over $4.5 million to Australian farmers and manufacturers.
