I have talked about the importance of knowing where our products come from and how companies can do extreme harm when trying to produce products for the lowest price in other countries without thinking of the men, women and children who they are affecting. That’s why I feature companies in my social good section who are doing good in the communities they operate, ultimately making the world a better place.
“Sharing a Sweet Future,” was launched by Truvia® in 2012 to help reduce childhood hunger in Bolivia and improve communities through better education, nutrition and safety.
In the communities where Truvia® operates nearly 40 percent of the Bolivian population are unable to afford adequate food for a healthy life and 65 percent of all rural households in Bolivia are unable to afford the minimum recommended caloric intake. Truvia® has an opportunity to make a positive impact.
- Over a three-year period, nearly $1 million in contributions from the Truvia® business will have been used to help develop sustainable communities in Bolivia, a region of critical need with one of the highest rates of nutritional deficiencies in South America.
- The Truvia partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme so far has helped to feed 49,075 Bolivian schoolchildren.
- They provide support to producers to invest in education, healthcare, farm improvements, and technical assistance to increase yield and quality, thereby increasing income.
As you can see, Truvia® has done so much good in their partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme over the past few years and they want you to have a voice in helping choose the organization they partner with in 2015!
