Paving the way further
The donation from the Nature’s Pride Foundation earlier this year was also important: this enabled the Groente & Fruitbrigade to buy a compact lorry which collected nearly 30% of all volume. Thanks to this lorry, the Groente & Fruitbrigade can better plan logistics –of course very important with fresh products– and collect more volume. Here you can read more about this donation.
In the Netherlands more than 1 million people live below the poverty line. This number is increasing due to the impact of COVID19. The Dutch Food Banks service 150.000 persons on an ongoing basis, handing out 44 million products on an annual basis. One out of every twelve children goes to school with hunger in the Netherlands.
Nature’s Pride is a proud partner of the Groente & Fruitbrigade.
