Confoil CEO Kris Srikanthan, along with our Director of Sustainability & Environment Janet Puschenjak and marketing team recently accompanied our charity partner OzHarvest on a volunteer van run day, rescuing & redistributing a whopping 5270kgs of food! This is the equivalent 15,810 meals delivered to those in need across Melbourne and thousands of kgs of greenhouse gas emissions prevented from entering the atmosphere by diverting this food from landfill. It was an eye opening experience as we travelled widely across Melbourne, rescuing food from supermarkets, airlines, catering companies and more that would otherwise go to waste.
Being local ourselves, we love to get involved with our community and know that sustainability begins in our own backyard.In addition to corporate volunteering, Confoil partner with OzHarvest Melbourne to provide them with foil containers for their "Cooking for a Cause" events, and have recently added OzHarvest to our panel of staff choice charities for fundraising and appeals support all throughout the year. We are extremely proud to align with OzHarvest and the exceptional work they do for those in our community who are the most vulnerable.
If you don't already know what this amazing organisation does, we encourange you to learn more and join the fight against food waste.
