Lausanne, Switzerland, (21 December 2022): Tetra Laval, the group which comprises Tetra Pak, Sidel and DeLaval is donating power and heat generators to a value of EUR 10 million as humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine, currently suffering major power shortages as a result of the Russian war on Ukraine. The equipment, including more than 200 generators, will be donated directly and with immediate release to Ukrainian authorities for onward distribution to the areas worst affected by the lack of power in the country.
“I am grateful to Tetra Laval for its donation which helps us restore Ukraine’s energy system. Russian missile terror seriously damaged it and left millions of Ukrainians without normal access to power, water, and heating amid freezing winter temperatures. With help of partners and friends, we stand strong. In these circumstances, Tetra Laval demonstrates an example of great social responsibility and solidarity. We will always remember this and kindly encourage other responsible Swedish businesses to follow suit,” says Mr. Dmytro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
This donation is in addition to the EUR 10 million already donated by Tetra Laval to Ukraine, since the start of the Russian invasion, through reputable aid organisations and through Tetra Pak’s customers to ensure safe food distribution in support of Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees outside the country.
