Their main mission is to harvest uneaten fruit in private gardens with the help of volunteer harvesters.
In order to further combat food waste, they also support producers by recycling their waste. Part of the fruit harvested is directly redistributed to social organizations so that they can benefit from quality and seasonal fruit. In addition to redistributing their fruit, partner organisations participate in the harvests as well as in various awareness-raising activities, such as 'zero waste' cooking workshops. The aim is to support them in the processing and enhancement of the fruit that FruitCollect gives them.
In order to support FruitCollect's social actions, another part of the fruit harvested from private homes is transformed into 100% Belgian and natural products. These products are then sold to changemakers who share common values with the association. All this in a short circuit.

Offices at Circularium
Short supply chain and the fight against waste
A taste of the team
The FruitCollect team consists of 5 superheroes, more than 500 "FruitCollectors" and more than 500 donors. In order to meet the challenge of food waste and improve tomorrow, they are looking for dynamic, self-starting, open-minded people.
With offices within Circularium, a centre for local innovation and circular production in Brussels, it is not uncommon to drink a beer as a team, taste good fruit or do team building activities.
Fun fact: since 2015 more than 165 tons of fruit and vegetables have been harvested 💪
