As a business deeply concerned about sustainability and reducing food waste, Nestlé’s partnership with FoodForward SA (FFSA) helps them work towards several of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These include No Poverty (SDG 1), Zero Hunger (SDG 2), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12), Climate Action (SDG 13) and Partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17).
Since March this year, Nestlé has generously donated nearly 1,200 tons of quality surplus food to FFSA! Their recent donation of 20,440 kg of MAGGI Noodles enabled us to showcase our extensive national infrastructure. Using our trucks to do inter-branch transfers, we transported a portion of the donation from Cape Town to our Port Elizabeth, Durban and Johannesburg branches.
Our Johannesburg branch provided some of the stock to our Rustenburg branch and we used our newly purchased 14-ton truck to transport some of the food to our beneficiary organisations located in Limpopo and Mpumalanga. Our Cape Town branch used this generous donation to help feed vulnerable beneficiaries from the Western – and Northern Cape. Thank you, Nestlé!
