CFINE’s Social Enterprise

CFINE’s Social Enterprise

There is sometimes a misconception that CFINE is solely a food bank. However, CFINE runs a variety of support services ranging from financial advice to community growing. In addition to these charitable projects CFINE also operates as a social enterprise selling fruit and vegetables to individuals, businesses, schools and charities, across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.

Enterprise sales

Sales to business, schools and charities, are coordinated by Warehouse Manager Richie Gavin, who is supported by a team of delivery drivers, warehouse staff, and volunteers. Sales include smaller scale orders, helping to promote healthy eating among employees, and larger wholesale deliveries. Our largest contracts are with NorthLink Ferries, Fletcher Shipping, and Tidewater. All profits from our sales are reinvested back into our support services and running costs. This allows us to continue supporting vulnerable individuals and communities across the North East.

“Delivered in good time taking into account the switch of ports. All in good order.” – Standard Viking

“All my fruit and veg has been of high quality so thanks and keep it coming” – NorthLink Ferries

“Thank you for excellent service yesterday from Robin. It was a pleasure to see him again after 6 months without his happy smile. The fruit is excellent, and the snacks are nearly gone.” – Subsea UK

“We had our first delivery of fruit on Wednesday and it has gone down very well indeed. It is great that you deliver in 3 boxes too then it’s so easy to split up per building. My fruit bowls are a perfect size too. All the feedback has been very good as to the quality of the fruit” – Add Energy

“Robin does our deliveries here at Waldorf and I just thought I’d let you know that he is such a lovely, polite guy and a credit to CFINE.” - Waldorf

“Love our fruit and veg box delivered by CFINE. I pick my produce every fortnight and the box is delivered to my home. Quality is excellent and staff so courteous and helpful. Highly recommend the service.” – Heather

“I make up my own order and the system is easy to use. Great to have it delivered to the door and I’m always delighted with the quality. Good to know it also supports the food bank, so it’s win win.” - Jane

I have been receiving deliveries of fruit and vegetables for a number of weeks now. The service is very efficient, the produce lovely and fresh. When I email my order to June I always get a prompt, friendly response. And even better, I am supporting a local charity. Keep up the good work, you're doing an excellent job!” – Yvonne
