Cargill Redon donates alcohol for disinfecting hand gel in France
(May 12, 2020) Employees at Cargill’s Redon plant came together to produce 1,000 liters to follow suit with a donation to local hospitals, public schools, the fire brigade and other organizations in need.
Making this happen took team effort and a preparation of about a month before production could begin. “We worked very closely with a number of local regulatory bodies, which enabled us to obtain the authorizations necessary to begin production and put us in touch with other manufacturers who also joined this great initiative,” said Noël Della Vittoria, Cargill Redon’s Managing Director.
“Our hospitals, doctors, and our civil protection services are on the front line 24/7 battling COVID-19. We felt an obligation to step up and support them as best we could,” he added.
This action complements donations made by Cargill France to the French Federation of Food Banks (FFBA). This included 58,000 liters of oil to local food banks and a €90,000 donation to support other FFBA actions.
