This Ramadan is definitely different from previous years because it coincides with the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Ramadan can be used as a momentum to increase empathy and spread kindness to others.
We should be grateful that to this day Garudafood, as a leading food and beverage company in Indonesia, is still permitted to continue operating by the Central Government.
To show our gratitude and celebrating the month of Ramadan, Garudafood once again gave an opportunity for all employees, shareholders, and business partners to donate by setting aside some of their wealth. This donation was then distributed in the form of more than 10,000 food packages consisting of rice, cooking oil, and Garudafood food & beverage products to the surrounding community of the head office, distribution office, and Garudafood factory in cooperation with village heads, Head of RT and Head of RW and other Muspika (Sub-District Leadership Meeting) to coordinate the distribution.
In addition to food packages, Garudafood has distributed more than 36,000 cartons of products to communities directly affected by this disaster, such as volunteers and medical personnel, online motorcycle taxis, taxi drivers, scavenger communities, orphanages, and communities around the Garudafood HO, Depo and factory.
We would like to extend our thanks to the management of Garudafood, shareholders, HO, Depo, and BU colleagues who have donated and worked hard in preparing and distributing the food packages whilst observing the social distancing policies and wearing masks.
Let's remain optimistic and obey the government’s rules to always keep a distance, diligently wash our hands with running water & soap and wear cloth masks.
