PETERBOROUGH, ON (May 19, 2020) - The global COVID-19 outbreak has brought about never-before challenges in our daily lives, and we remain deeply concerned for all those affected by the pandemic.
In order to support the country’s collective response to this crisis, Tetra Pak, Sidel and DeLaval, will jointly donate 165,000 Canadian dollars (€ 110,000) to United Way Centraide with a view to support the health care system/ COVID-19 relief efforts in Canada. The contribution is bound to be used to support those most in need in local communities across Canada who could not (and cannot) afford to adequately prepare for how COVID-19 is affecting their family.
This forms part of the Tetra Laval Group’s recent donation of €10 million to support global COVID-19 relief efforts.
We remain fully committed to play our part in ensuring continuous food supplies in the country, while maintaining important measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and all those involved in our operations.
We are extremely thankful to our employees, customers and partners for their relentless contribution during these difficult times, and we pledge our full support to the government, industry and communities in tackling this extraordinary situation.
