McCain announces opening of community shop to support local community.
FROZEN potato manufacturer McCain has just announced its new partnership with Community Shop, an award-winning social enterprise which redistributes surplus food and household products across the country.
McCain will be funding the construction of a new social supermarket store in Eastfield, North Yorkshire, set to open in the summer, with the development expected to support around 750 people in the local community.
The store will sell products deemed ‘surplus’ and may otherwise have gone to waste. Funds raised from the store will be reinvested in the local area through the store’s Community Hub - which offers personal development programmes tailored to the needs of each member.
