BERLIN, GERMANY February 5, 2015: IFCO SYSTEMS, the leading global provider of reusable packaging solutions, has donated 30,000€ to support the Bundesverband Deutsche Tafel e.V. and Berliner Tafel.

IFCO encouraged fair attendees to also support the food banks by hosting a lottery where participants could win attractive prizes, then matched the funds raised and presented the entire amount to food bank representatives. Wolfgang Orgeldinger, CEO of IFCO SYSTEMS said, “IFCO believes strongly in the importance of food banks here in Germany and around the world. We are pleased to continue our support of their good work in providing fresh, healthy food to the needy.”

Their support helps make possible the provision of food to 1.5 Million people in need throughout Germany.”
