METRO has been a partner of the United Nations World Food Programme, which was awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize, already since 2016. In the course of this partnership, our customers and employees are – among other activities – actively involved in fundraising campaigns in order to work together towards a world without hunger and to redistribute the resource food fairly. We are also committed to further measures to combat food waste:
Food Banks - An Exemplary Distributor
Food banks collect leftover, consumable food and distribute it to the needy. However, donations of meat and fish products in particular are often subject to special health regulations. In France, METRO is helping set up non-profit soup kitchens that meet all the required freshness standards.
