how the people's supermarket works

The People’s Supermarket was the initiative of a groupof social entrepreneurs with a track record in community-driven regeneration, sustainability, food-related innovation and grocery retailing. Aiming to reduce food poverty and health inequality by providing affordable food to low-income communities, they created an industrial and provident society, a community benefit companythat allows for diverse investments from members.The volunteering model, together with the maximumuse of recycled fixtures and the minimisation of waste,enables the venture to match and even undercut largecompetitors on some product lines, without having torely on low-quality or volume brand suppliers.
