Lactalis Canada Donates Eight Tonnes of Yogourt to Food Banks
Canadian dairy leader, Lactalis Canada, has donated 12,400 tubs of Olympic organic yogourt to Ontario and British Columbia food banks to combat rising food insecurity in both regions. This is the second year Lactalis Canada’s Olympic brand has supported Canadian food banks with a holiday donation, and this year’s donation marks a six percent increase over 2022.
“We know that with so many Canadians currently facing food insecurity, food banks are experiencing unprecedented demand,” said Adrienne Pagot-Gérault, General Manager, Cultured & Yogourt Division, Lactalis Canada. “Lactalis Canada’s Olympic Organic brand’s very motto is centered around “crafted with care” and this extends to our support to food banks in Ontario and British Columbia this holiday season through a significant contribution of our high-quality nutritious products.”
The donation represents the brand’s commitment to giving back to those in need and the care the brand has for its local communities.
In Ontario, the yogourt will be provided to Feed Ontario and distributed to their affiliated food banks, including Food Banks Mississauga. In British Columbia, the yogourt will be distributed to various food bank recipients, including the CityReach Care Society, Lotus Light Charity Society, Richmond Food Bank Society and Archway Food Bank.
