We aim to support the communities in which we work, giving opportunities to help those causes and projects that are important to our people.

Corporate fundraising

Bakkavor develops corporate charity relationships as an opportunity to foster positive workplace engagement and the chance to ‘make a difference’.

At a corporate level we support Action Against Hunger as a global charity that works across nearly 50 countries to lead the global fight against hunger and malnutrition as well as FareShare, a UK-based charity, representing our strong footprint in the UK. FareShare saves good food destined for waste and sends it to charities and community groups who transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people.

Local charity support

We encourage our sites to support charities which make a real difference within their local communities and that matter most to our employees. SEF (Site Employee Forum) representatives are heavily involved in organising activities to fundraise or volunteer with community sustainability projects.

One of the biggest local site fundraisers takes place annually in the UK at the Spalding Fun Weekend and Party in the Park sponsored by Bakkavor for employees, their families and members of the public.

At our annual Group Responsibility Awards we recognise all the hard work and commitment from our sites to engage and support their communities by presenting a Good Neighbour Award to the site that has made the most impact.
