IFCO sponsoring delights at the 2011 Tafel Federal Congress in Kassel

tafel 2011 06 news

The engagement of IFCO in support of the Bundesverband Deutsche Tafel e.V., a WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative which started in December 2009, takes on new dimensions. Thus far, 24 local Tafel organisations have been outfitted with reusable containers. IFCO has expanded this support globally: food banks in Argentina, Brazil, the UK and the USA have also been supplied with reusable containers. IFCO’s intention is to help the food banks convert to sustainable reusable containers thus reducing their costs of disposing of wasteful one-way packaging.

As part of the City-Wager campaign at the Tafel Federal Congress of 23-26 June, IFCO provided the Kassel food bank with over 1000 ‘green crates’ to collect and store donated foodstuff. Kassel’s Lord Mayor Bertram Hilgen wagered that his city would donate a minimum of 11 tonnes of food. This was in fact over-achieved to the factor of three! Kassel citizens donated over 10 tonnes and REWE and PENNY topped that up with an additional 25 tonnes.

Michael Meierhöfer, Managing Director of IFCO Systems Deutschland GmbH, announced the co-sponsoring of an additional 10 refrigerated vans over the next 12 months. Working with their partners Lidl and Mercedes Benz, IFCO had thus far helped the Tafel to acquire 20 such vans which are used to safely transport the fresh food so urgently required by the needy.

Mr. Meierhöfer said that “We are delighted that our sponsoring helps the Tafel to support those in need. Sustainable social engagement, part of our WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY initiative, is a matter of great concern to us. We’re particularly delighted that our reusable containers make a substantial contribution to protecting the environment.”
