The six new faces will bring a broad range of food industry knowledge and expertise to help FareShare deliver its mission to meet the soaring levels of demand, getting more food to more people in need.

  • Dominic Blakemore, chief executive of Compass Group PLC

  • Martin Ryan, former group chief operating officer of TPICAP

John Bason, chair of trustees for FareShare, said: “We are enormously grateful to all our trustees who give their time so generously to help steer our ambitions for growth and impact.

“The appointment of so many industry leaders to the board presents an opportunity to bring new talent, experience and networks to complement the existing team. High calibre food industry and logistics experts will be essential in supporting the charity’s transition going forwards. We look forward to working together at an exciting time for FareShare.”
