Unilever Raises Over £50,000 for Hospitality Action
Unilever Food Solutions has raised an impressive £51,146 for Hospitality Action, the benevolent charity for the UK hospitality industry, exceeding its original target of £40,000 to support the charity’s work.
The money raised was part of a Knorr campaign to donate 20p from every tub of 1kg chicken, beef and vegetable bouillon which ran from October to December last year. The £51,146 donation to Hospitality Action will go towards helping current and past hospitality employees suffering from tragedy, ill health or personal hardship, to improve their personal circumstances for a better future.
Tracey Rogers, managing director at Unilever Food Solutions, comments: “We have received such a fantastic industry response to our Knorr bouillon initiative that we have been able to raise an additional £11,146. I think it’s important for any business to show its support of the wider hospitality and foodservice community, and our continued commitment to Hospitality Action is just one way in which we can do so.”
Penny Moore, CEO, Hospitality Action, comments: “I would like to say a huge thank you to Unilever Food Solutions for this donation. This generosity will go a long way in helping us raise awareness of and support the livelihoods of those who most need our help. It will make a huge difference to their future lives.”
