Romania is going through a complicated period this year both from the point of health crisis managed by the pandemic, and from the economic point of view (the crisis of energy bills and accelerated increases in consumer prices). Because it pays more attention to social responsibility, Jungheinrich Romania decided to get involved by supporting the national network of food banks. In this regard, the company donated a new electric pallet truck with mast to the local Romanian Food Bank, thus actively contributing to supporting the collection and distribution of food to vulnerable people in our country.
The Food Bank is a non-profit organization that collects consumer goods free of charge from donors (economic agents, individuals, agri-food producers) and distributes them to people in need and to charities. From the inauguration until now, through the three Food Banks in Bucharest, Cluj and Roman, the threshold of 1,000 tons of food collected has been exceeded.
"Finding out about this initiative, we thought about the best way to support the project. We pay great attention to the involvement in the life of local communities and we want to actively contribute to the support of disadvantaged people. So I decided that donating an electric pallet truck would be the best way to support the efforts of the local Roman Food Bank. As a provider of complete solutions in the field of intralogistics, Jungheinrich places great emphasis on responsibility, ecological and social principles being part of the brand identity. This allows us to respond not only to customer expectations but also to the needs of the communities in which we operate" says Ms. Imke Fasold, CEO of Jungheinrich Romania.
