Society is suffering from inequality, division and a rapidly changing environment. Though seemingly positive, economic growth and adopting an “onwards and upwards” mind-set have not resulted in the amelioration of such socio-economic challenges. Social entrepreneurship combines both economic and social goals, thus offering a sustainable approach to creating transformation. However, it is argued that social entrepreneurship has not fulfilled expectations that it will solve significant social problems. Nonetheless, there are still cases of social enterprises that have managed to address a societal problem and ethically expand their operations. This chapter will present a case of a social enterprise which is working towards solving the problem of food waste in the United Kingdom. The purpose of this chapter is to evaluate the socially transformative strategies and outcomes of a social enterprise, and consider the potential and future of the sector.
