Philanthropic cultures: Danone Canada’s partnership with Second Harvest

by | Nov 1, 2022 | Community

Food waste is extremely prevalent in our society and many organizations and brands are increasingly looking to find new ways to reduce waste and promote sustainable food systems with their platforms. Danone Canada, through a recent partnership with Second Harvest, joins this list of brands with a new Greek yogurt product called Two Good

“As a purpose-driven company that values balancing business growth and performance with social responsibility, we are very excited to bring Two Good to the Canadian market to enable consumers to do good for themselves and their communities through a simple cup of yogurt,” Eric Maffert, Senior Marketing Director at Danone Canada said. “Like Danone Canada, Two Good operates with a shared mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible, while also doing its part to make a positive social impact and that’s why – to support the launch of the product in Canada – we’re excited to announce our partnership with Second Harvest, the country’s largest food rescue organization.” 

Along with the launch of this product, Danone has committed a donation to Second Harvest that will help us rescue and redistribute enough food for 83,000 meals!

“Through the partnership, we’ll help to create a more waste-conscious food system that prioritizes feeding those in need,” Maffert said.

Food insecurity has links to lower diet quality, and that’s why we have a specific focus on rescuing and redistributing nutritious and perishable foods to non-profits all across Canada. In fact, in 2022, 85% of the food we rescued was perishable and 64% was nutrient-dense!
