November, 2011 - As partner of the 2011 campaign by the Banque Alimentaire de La Loire (French Food Bank), IFCO has provided 4000 Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) to help in the collection and storage of 140 tons of donated Food Stuff. This project will support 38,000 households.
“All the volunteers were delighted to use IFCO RPCs as they are so easy to handle, solid and stable when manipulated and stored. Additionally, IFCO RPCs contribute to our actions for sustainability by eliminating any waste of one way packaging” declared Gérard Ribeyron, Chairman Banque Alimentaire de la Loire. Pierre-Olivier Blanchard, Managing Director IFCO France said: “We were very happy to support the Banque Alimentaire de la Loire’s actions and those in need and we intend to expand this sponsorship further throughout 2012”.
