We continuously strive to be a force for good in society, continuously contributing to communities and developing opportunities for positive change. We are focused on supporting those who live and work where we operate, and we strive to play a responsible and active role at a local level through a wide range of initiatives.
Supporting Foodbank provide over 2,400 front line charities, local communities, organisations and 2,000 schools across the country with safe food. During the 2020 summer bushfires, we helped ensure families and the first responders had access to food relief when they needed it they most.
In Australia, 7.9 million tonnes of food is wasted each year. At the same time, 1 in 9 people don’t have enough food to eat. OzHarvest operates nationally, rescuing over 180 tonnes of quality food each week (that would otherwise go to landfill) from over 3,500 food donors and distributed to people in need (more than 1300 charities across the country). We continue to support this food rescue operation fight food waste.
For 10 years, we have been supporting St. Vincent de Paul in the Hamilton area provide nutritional and safe food to underserved communities.
