Food Concepts Plc sees social responsibility as a culture and an attitude that exists within the fabric of the way we do business. We recognise that we have a responsibility to support the communities in which we operate and ensure we impact them positively.
“At this time, when the entire world finds itself in a state of crisis, our responsibility to our communities is heightened and we have made this a priority within our business.” says David Butler, CEO of Food Concepts.
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Food Concepts has partnered with several organisations around the country, including The Ministry of Health (Emergency Response Team – Covid-19), Lagos State – Ministry of Health, Yaba Infectious Disease Center and the Onikan Isolation Center, The Federal Ministry of Health (Abuja Isolation Center) and with Lagos Physical Planning.
Food Concepts has donated millions of Naira of food and cash over the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our employees have been on the front line, helping to distribute food to those most severely affected by the virus. Given the nature of this pandemic, Food Concepts have ensured that employees engaged in such initiatives have undergone special training and that they have been kitted out with the necessary health and safety gear to ensure their safety.
Food Concepts have also engaged in strategic partnerships with like-minded organisations like AIICO Insurance and InfraCredit. These initiatives led to the feeding of disadvantaged people and communities across multiple communities In Lagos.
