​​​​​​​​​Tetra Laval Group donates over INR 3 crores towards COVID-19 relief effort


​​

The global COVID-19 outbreak has brought about never-before challenges in our daily lives, and we remain deeply concerned for all those affected by the pandemic.

In order to support the country’s collective response to this crisis, Tetra Pak, Sidel and DeLaval, will jointly donate over INR 3 crores to various relief organizations across the country with a view to support the COVID-19 relief efforts in India. Of the total, INR 1 crore will be donated to the PM-cares fund for national relief efforts. Another part of the funds will be used to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), masks and other essentials for frontline healthcare workers across Maharashtra. The remaining funds will be used to augment similar efforts across the country to fight the virus over the coming weeks.

This forms part of the Tetra Laval Group’s recent donation of €10 million to support global COVID-19 relief efforts https://www.tetralaval.com/news-and-press-releases/tetra-laval-group-covid-19-relief-efforts

The donation is in addition to the on-going CSR and community support activities being undertaken by Tetra Pak, De Laval and Sidel. This includes support to the waste-picker families across India who are helping keep the country running, and to the migrant workers & other marginalised communities around our area of operations who are most vulnerable to the impact of the pandemic.

Employees across Tetra Pak, De Laval and Sidel have also voluntarily contributed a day's salary to central and state relief funds, reiterating their commitment to stand in solidarity with the entire nation to effectively combat the crisis.

We remain fully committed to play our part in ensuring continuous food supplies in the country, while maintaining important measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and all those involved in our operations.

We are extremely thankful to our employees, customers and partners for their relentless contribution during these difficult times, and we pledge our full support to the government, industry and communities in tackling this extraordinary situation.
