that supporting communities in need is an ongoing process. It requires a long-term commitment to making a positive change, and a willingness to work collaboratively with others to achieve shared goals. We believe every act of support can help to create an opportunity to live a happier and healthier life.
Life happens to all of us, and sometimes we need help to get by. That’s why we support Foodbank Australia, which helps provide food relief to 306,000 households every day. Did you know, that over one in four families have experienced severe food insecurity in Australia over the last 12 months? To help put food on the table for those who need it, Perfection Fresh donated 361,000 meals to Foodbank Australia in 2022. We are proud to be helping those Australians doing it tough and will continue to support Foodbank in 2023.
Our relationship with McDonalds Australia began in 1984 and for over 15 years we have supported Ronald McDonald House Charities® and will continue this relationship in 2023.
Ronald McDonald House Charities® creates, finds and supports programs across Australia that help seriously ill children and their families live happier, healthier lives.
In support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Gala Ball, we donated $30,000 that included a '100nights' for parents to stay close to their sick kids during treatment.
We are proud to be one of only a handful of suppliers that sell fresh produce for their McDonalds Meals.
Together we can make a difference.
In 2023, Gatton Hawks celebrate 25 years with Perfection Fresh. Our connection with the Gatton Hawks Football club started as a grandstand sponsorship to say thanks to the community for supporting the early adoption of our ideas and endeavours. The Lockyer Valley in Queensland, which is rated among the top ten most fertile farming areas of the world was the best for Perfection Fresh founders to trial Broccolini over 25 years ago. The driving force was to immerse ourselves in this important growing region working side by side with the growers. We are proud to continue our long-standing partnership with the Gatton Hawks and the Lockyer Valley community.
Supporting Communities is a vital ingredient within the Social pillar of our ESG strategy. OzHarvest is one of Australia’s leading food rescue organisations, saving surplus food from ending up in landfill and delivering it to charities that help feed people in need.
We support OzHarvest in its various programs, including its Sydney Schools Run and Market program. Perfection Fresh is committed to donating produce every week, enabling students from 55 schools across Sydney to access a piece of fresh fruit to eat with their lunch daily.
Over the past year Perfection Fresh has donated an average of 600kgs of fruit each week assisting in 90,708 meals. We look forward to supporting OzHarvest to expand and continue their valuable work to help ensure fresh produce doesn’t go to waste and gets to people who are in need.
