Greenyard Frozen, formerly Pinguin Foods, has received a charity voucher worth €3,500 after winning a competition held at SIAL by TOMRA Sorting Food, to celebrate the launch of the new TOMRA 5B, a state-of-the-art sorter.
Koen Crabbe, who entered the competition on behalf of Greenyard Frozen, subsequently chose Ruben Donné’s charity mission to sail from Belgium to Cape Town, South Africa, via Brazil, as the recipient of the charity voucher.
Jan Ingelbeen, general manager at Greenyard Frozen, commented: “Here at Greenyard Frozen we value corporate social responsibility. That is why we regularly sponsor charities, especially ones where our employees are committed themselves.”
Ruben Donné is undertaking his mission to raise funds and promote awareness for people living with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition his father suffers from. As part of the mission he hopes to arrive in Cape Town 60 days after departing from Belgium, and he will endeavor to sail 14,852 kilometers in a 6.5-meter sailing yacht.
Steve Raskin, sales director EMEA, at TOMRA Sorting Food said: “We’re delighted that the voucher is going to support Ruben’s journey across the Atlantic and we thank everyone who took part in the competition.”
