The South African President declared a National State of Disaster in March 2020 resulting in a country-wide lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This resulted in loss of income for many households. As McCain Foods (SA), it was a our corporate responsibility to give a helping hand to those who were unable to provide for themselves and their families’ vital nutrition.
Utilising our key partnerships with FoodForward SA, the largest food redistribution organisation in South Africa; Meals on Wheels SA, an organisation that provides meals to those who cannot provide for themselves; Goldi Chicken, South Africa’s much loved frozen chicken brand; Agri SA, an organisation that promotes the development, profitability, stability and sustainability of primary agriculture in South Africa and Tightline Fisheries in conjunction with SA Rugby Legends, a large distribution company, wholesaling seafood, as well as a comprehensive range of restaurant and catering related products, we are proud to share that we have contributed over 2 million meals to help feed South Africans during the lock down, through our various community initiatives.
Growing Thriving Families sits at the heart of everything we do at McCain and what better way to do that than by helping those most in need during these challenging times.
