Greenchain Consulting, in collaboration with Erin Nichols at Farm Folk City Folk, prepared a feasibility study and business plan for a food recovery program which recovers unwanted, but edible, food from retailers and distributors and then uses the food to make frozen ready meals, soups, and food baskets for low income families.  The objective was to roll out the business model throughout Metro Vancouver to divert 1% of the organic waste away from landfill.
