A Large Food Collection Campaign Began with a Donation from Carnex


Carnex, a member of MK Group, is the first company to donate its products as part of the “Save Food” initiative and the upcoming National Giving Day, which this year will be dedicated to collecting food for the most vulnerable. The campaign is organized by the Serbian Philanthropic Forum and the Charity Coalition, led by the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, with USAID support.
Carnex donated packages of its products to the Migration Center “Info Park”, and during the presentation of the donation, the Commercial Director of Carnex, Milan Radoš, pointed out: As a company that is one of the largest food producers, we strive to help all vulnerable groups as much as we can. In the past three years, in cooperation with the Food Bank alone, we have donated about 70 tons of our products, thus providing at least one meal for about 420,000 people “.
Info Park employee Irena Abdelalam Abdelmaksoud thanked Carnex for meeting their desire to provide their users with food tailored to their habits, bearing in mind that this organization is especially committed to protecting the most vulnerable refugee groups, namely women and children.
The Executive Director of the Serbian Philanthropic Forum, Veran Matić, announced that within the campaign for the month of food donation, the collected food products will be distributed through numerous organizations dealing with poverty and hunger in Serbia, and invited other companies and citizens to actively be included.
This action of Carnex, which started the campaign, is only the first in a series that MK Group will realize in the coming period with its member companies. Flora, Sunoko and Agrounija will also donate their food products. MK Group continuously and systematically allocates significant funds, both in goods and in money, for numerous philanthropic activities. Last year alone, the company set aside more than one million euros for donations, which is why it was awarded the prestigious Virtus recognition for its contribution to philanthropy at the national level, as well as declared the most socially responsible company by the Serbian Association of Managers.
