As agreed on the five years partnership, IFCO is donating its Reusable Packaging Containers (RPCs) to the FEBA network across Europe, which will be helpful for Food Banks’ daily operations of recovering and redistributing surplus food to the charitable organisations assisting the people most in need.
After the donation deliver in Romania two months ago, at the beginning of May 2023, FEBA Member in Greece, Food Bank Greece, received 2 pallets containing 640 IFCO RPCs in total.
Theodosios Staikopoulos, IFCO Greece General Manager personally visited the Food Bank in Greece and claimed its support to its mission.
Throughout this partnership, twenty FEBA Members in the countries where IFCO is operating will benefit from the donation of 200,000 RPCs. The partnership also includes training and consultancy in logistics from IFCO, online fundraising campaigns, raising awareness events, and communication activities.
“IFCO´s packaging-as-a-service model strongly supports our efforts. Preventing food loss and waste and operating in the most sustainable way for the benefit of those organisations who are assisting people in need go hand in hand. By using IFCO RPCs, our members are able to operate more efficiently, prevent waste, and assist charities in a sustainable way.” said Angela Frigo, FEBA Secretary General.
