IFCO sponsors the first cooling van for Spanish food bank Banco de Alimentos in Madrid

Pullach/Madrid, July 13, 2012 - As part of the international expansion of the WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, IFCO, in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz and Sabeco, supports the Banco de Alimentos in Madrid, Spain, through the donation of a new cooling van for the delivery of fresh fruit and vegetables. 

The WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILTIY initiative was established in 2010 by IFCO, who is the leading provider of Reusable Plastic Container (RPCs), in order to help food banks all across the world store and transport foodstuffs to the needy through supply of IFCO’s green crates and co-financing Mercedes-Benz’s delivery vehicle.

As the first Spanish partner of the initiative, the Banco de Alimentos Madrid has been provided with over 10,000 environmentally friendly RPCs and is thereby benefiting of a network of closely cooperating, experienced sponsors, who place a strong emphasis on improving the carbon footprint through the replacement of cardboard boxes with reusable packaging. 

In 2012 and in Germany alone, more than 25 food banks are utilizing over 30,000 environmentally friendly IFCO crates, as well as new cooling vans, which are sponsored through the WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY partners and are optimized for transporting chilled food. First international events were recently hosted for example in Vienna, Austria, where prominent guests from politics and the media handed-over the new cooling van to the food bank.

“The Banco de Alimentos in Madrid has been founded in 1994 and since then has distributed roughly 70 million kilograms of food to the local needy. Our 120 regular supporters are looking forward to work with the new delivery vehicle”, says Javier Espinosa Martínez, President of the Banco de Alimentos de Madrid, the Madrid food bank.

“IFCO is proud to be able to support the food bank of Madrid’s honorable effort to supply foo to the needy of the Madrid region. We supply the Banco de Alimentos with RPCs – to enable to optimally transport fresh produce in a space- and cost-saving way”, says Manuel Montero, IFCO Vice President of the South European Region.
