With our community of dedicated, professional chefs around the world, along with the involvement from the Worldchefs organization, we are uniquely positioned to support the initiatives and important messaging about the need for healthy food and sustainable cooking.”
The Electrolux Food Foundation was established in 2016 focusing on supporting activities on food and related sustainability issues. The foundation brings employee initiatives to life by supporting them with funding and resources. In 2020 the foundation donated more than 800,000 meals around the world.
“We are delighted that Electrolux Professional has decided to join up with us and support the Food Foundation. Our partners give us an edge and help us to be a force for good,” says Ingrid Mellstig, Head of Electrolux Food Foundation.
