IFCO supports Food Bank in Lauterbach with vehicle sponsoring

By sponsoring a refrigerated van for the Lauterbacher Tafel (Lauterbach food bank) as part of their WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, IFCO enables optimum transport of fresh produce.

Lauterbach/Pullach, 17.10.13 – during a celebration at the Mercedes car dealership at Umgehungsstraße 29-31, a refrigerated van was handed over to chairwoman Andrea Riedesel Freifrau zu Eisenbach and chairman Ulrich Baier, which is urgently needed for their daily work. The logistics provider IFCO, which is known for its green crates for fruit and vegetables, significantly contributed to the purchase by donating a sum of € 5,000.

"The refrigerated van is a great help for Lauterbacher Tafel. It makes it easier for us to transport fresh food quickly and in optimum quality to their destinations. Lauterbacher Tafel and the entire team are very grateful for IFCO's support", says Ulrich Baier.

Jürgen Schuler, IFCO SYSTEMS sales representative, was also pleased: "Hygiene and freshness are decisive factors in the logistics of fruit and vegetables. Both have to be guaranteed in each step of the logistic process, at the food bank level as well as for our retail customers. We are able to achieve this for the food banks by combining RPCs and refrigerated vans. We are delighted to be able to support a growing number of food banks thanks to WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY."

As part of their WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, IFCO is committed to financing refrigerated vans for food banks and, so far, has sponsored 37 vehicles. On an international level, food banks worldwide use more than 110,000 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.

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.

 

IFCO SYSTEMS ESPAÑA supports Food Bank in Asturia

Oviedo, May 22, 2013—IFCO SYSTEMS has decided to support the Food Bank in Asturia through the free provision of RPCs (Reusable Plastic Containers).

These are used both for the collection and distribution of food, and help to improve packaging and transportation processes considerably. Thanks to RPCs, no single-use packages are utilized which harm the environment and are difficult to recycle. The socially responsible and charitable collaboration between IFCO and the Food Bank in Asturia facilitates all operations regarding collection of food from various supporting partners and delivery to different charitable organizations.


In addition to the above mentioned benefits of the RPCs, the containers are easy to handle and stack, reducing storage space and providing more convenience, speed and safety in the collection of food during the “Kilo” initiatives. The Foundation of the Food Bank in Asturia expresses its gratitude to IFCO SYSTEMS for this socially responsible initiative which supports its efforts with charitable organizations that care for the poor.


IFCO SYSTEMS embraces their decision on collaboration as an integral part of their initiative for Corporate Social Responsibility, "WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY”, which supports food banks and other charitable organizations world-wide.
