TORONTO — Collette is doing its part to give back, reaching its goal of donating one million meals at a recent packaging event during the company’s annual Founder’s Day.
“There are so many people in need around the globe, and we feel fortunate to be able to make a real impact in their lives, both through our global workforce and our many wonderful partners,” said CEO Dan Sullivan. “Social responsibility has been and always will be a core pillar of our culture at Collette.”
The company launched the One Million Meals hunger initiative in 2016 to celebrate its 100th anniversary and to honour its core value of giving back. To reach its goal, Collette mobilized the support of its 600 global employees and partnered with a number of organizations such as Rise Against Hunger and Rhode Island-based Edesia. Coleltte also donated to organizations such as Share our Strength, all of which work towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger.
