SOCIAL COMMITMENT

Social commitment

We consider corporate social responsibility a lever for social progress, the redistribution of wealth, and collective well-being.

Being an organization dedicated to the distribution of fresh products, we make efforts every day to fight against the squandering of food and to achieve a more sustainable and responsible supply chain.

 

All year-round, we collaborate with several volunteer organizations and highlight their excellent work towards the most disadvantaged members of society.

 

Our collaboration plans with these organizations are diverse. With some, we establish financial contributions over the year, with others we perform one-time collaborations related to a particular event, and on many other occasions our contribution is based on the donation of fresh fruit and vegetables.
