HONG KONG - September 21, 2022 - Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) is at the core of our business and everything we do! The Carlsberg’s DE&I agenda has never been only concealed within our workplace. To further share our love and care to those in need, the Carlsberg Hong Kong DE&I task force together with the Asia Regional Team joined hands in forming a volunteer team and organized a community outreach event on September 15 with Food Angel – a food rescue and food assistance program, who provides meals and food packs free of charge for those who are in need of food assistance in Hong Kong.
Dedicated half-day of their work time, the Volunteer Team brings along their positive energy with their loving hearts, where they gathered in one of the kitchens of Food Angel, to help prepare meal boxes for the underprivileged in the community.
During this event, the Team learnt about the operation and services of Food Angel, and the food waste issues in Hong Kong. The Team also participated in the process of ingredients preparation and prepared a total of 1,991 hot meal lunch boxes in just 75 minutes!
“Fostering the DE&I culture is an ongoing process and we believe that the involvement of the management team is important in driving it further and faster! Supporting disadvantaged groups and contributing positively to society is a source of pride for all our employees here at Carlsberg. We believe that it is our responsibility to provide employees with the means in taking action and valuable contribution to the current social and environmental needs,” said Danny Fung, Managing Director, Carlsberg Hong Kong.
Every action helps regardless of its’ scale – big or small! This event is only part of our community engagement journey. Together, let's continue in building a truely inclusive society together!
