Tetra Laval, the group which comprises Tetra Pak, Sidel and DeLaval is donating an additional €8 million to humanitarian aid in Ukraine and relief efforts in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania (excluding Russia and Belorussia). This comes after the group’s announcement in early March that it was donating €2 million.
“We condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine and are deeply concerned by the war. It is tragic and terrible. The war is affecting our colleagues, friends, partners, suppliers, consumers, customers, and their families and friends. We stand with all of those who are impacted by the violence, and we join all parties calling for peace and an immediate ceasefire. We will continue to support humanitarian efforts locally in Ukraine and in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania,” says Lars Renström, chairman of the Tetra Laval Group.
€2 million is to be immediately donated to reputable aid organisations. A further €2 million will be allocated to secure safe food distribution for refugees mainly in collaboration with Tetra Pak’s local customers. The Group will evaluate how the remaining €4 million are best utilised in support of Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees outside the country.
