Qatar Aircraft Catering Company (QACC) has announced that it is collaborating with local Qatari charity, Hifz Al Naema, to redistribute surplus food and beverages to good causes in Qatar. QACC and Hifz Al Naema, expect to redistribute 200-300kg of food and beverage everyday such as whole fruits, cereals, soft drinks, yoghurt and chocolates.
Established in 2008, Hifz Al Naema was the first food bank to open in Qatar. The programme began with collecting surplus food from festivals, weddings and hotels and has since expanded to collecting and distributing surplus clothing, furniture, electronic devices and other appliances.
QACC Senior Vice President, Mr. Michael Winner, said: “We are delighted to partner with Hifz Al Naema, a local Qatari charity that specializes in repackaging and redistributing surplus food and beverage. At QACC, we are continuously looking at ways to reduce waste and ensure an optimal food and beverage service to all our clients. This partnership ensures any unserved meals or unopened items will be redistributed to support those in need in our local community and reduce wastage at landfills.”
