    Cookies That Count offer chocolate and sea salt cookies, baked to order by chefs. We use food surplus, where possible, to try and do our part to reduce food waste. 

    Set up by friends and former work colleagues, Sarah and Jessica (our resident chef!), Cookies That Count offers boxes of freshly baked, chocolate and sea salt cookies. Their aim is to make the cookies using donated surplus ingredients, where possible, and donate 35% of profits to charity. At the moment, they’re raising funds for Hospitality Action, to help support their industry peers. 

    At the start of lockdown, a week or two into being furloughed, they received an email from one of their regular customers, asking if they could share their cookie recipe as he was missing them so much. After that email exchange, Sarah and Jess both started baking cookies for their fellow volunteers at the charity centre where they were volunteering their time. This evolved into them sending out care packages of cookies to their family and friends, who greatly appreciated it and loved receiving cookies in the post, and so the business was born.

    The cookies include surplus ingredients where possible to help to eliminate food waste in the industry. ‘Supply chains took a beating during lockdown and the amount of waste was pretty heartbreaking,’ says Jess, ‘But we’ve been able to rescue butter and freeze it, and we can always use short dated chocolate because we have freezer capacity. We’ll rescue as much as we can, if you have something to donate just get in touch.’
    As the business grows, Cookies That Count hope to provide part-time paid work to fellow chefs who have lost their jobs, and each box of cookies comes with a business card with the name of the chef who baked the cookies.
