Nürnberger Land Tafel and IFCO: long-term partnership under the banner of WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY

By sponsoring refrigerated vans and RPCs for Nürnberger Land Tafel, the food bank for the Nuremberg region, as part of their WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, IFCO enables optimum transport of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Nuremberg/Pullach, June 21, 2013—during a celebration at the Rieger Mercedes car dealership in Altdorf near Nuremberg/Feucht, a refrigerated van was handed over to Gerhard Hampl, board member of Nürnberger Land Tafel, which is urgently needed for their daily work.

“The refrigerated van is a great help for Nürnberger Land Tafel. It makes it easier for us to transport fresh food quickly and in optimum quality to their destinations. Nürnberger Land Tafel and the entire team are very grateful for WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY's support. Sponsors like IFCO lay the foundations for optimizing food bank activities. Combined with the commitment of our volunteers, they provide optimum conditions for the best support possible for those in need,” explains Gerhard Hampl.

Nürnberger Land Tafel and WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY look back on a long-term partnership, as this institution was one of the first food banks to be assisted by the initiative. “IFCO and Nürnberger Land Tafel share a special relationship, as they were one of the first food banks to use our environmentally friendly RPCs,” recalls Robert Högl, IFCO sales representative, when looking back to the early days of WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY. “I am continually amazed by the growth in size and influence the initiative has achieved: from the first 100 green crates to more than 100,000 RPCs today plus 37 refrigerated vans—that is admirable. We will strive to keep driving the initiative in the future.”

As part of their WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, IFCO is committed to financing refrigerated vans for food banks and, so far, has sponsored 36 vehicles. On an international level, food banks worldwide use more than 100,000 IFCO RPCs for delivering and storing the required food. These green crates are a hygienic and environmentally friendly alternative to cardboard one-way packaging and significantly help reduce disposal costs for the food banks.
