The UK's best selection of clearance food & drink at discount prices

Did you know? Every year in the UK over 7 million tonnes of food and drink is thrown away, a lot of which has past its 'best before' date, but would still be perfectly good to eat.

We specialise in surplus and short-dated stock, food that is either near or just passed its 'best before' date - allowing us to pass on huge savings to our customers. We have over 6500 products including - Big Brands, Cupboard Fillers, Ex Supermarket & Department store products across a wide range of Food, Drinks, Household & Toiletries, Gifts plus much more.. all at huge discounts.

Our regular customers typically save around £60 on their monthly shop compared to high street prices. That's over a whopping £700 per year you too could be saving. Our stock is constantly updating so we'll always have something new for you - all at incredibly low prices. We do not sell anything past its USE BY date. Quick & Easy online ordering - delivered direct to your door.

A brief history

After starting out as market traders, Dan Cluderay and his wife Nicola moved into wholesale and a number of retail outlets that supplied both the public and trade.

The business became Approved Food in the spring of 2009, and through strong customer service and a keen use of social media still offers the same values and connections with its customers as those early market stall days in Hull and Doncaster.

After 5 moves over the years, Approved Food is now located in Barnsley alongside its sister company Morris & Son.
