Qatar Aircraft Catering Company (QACC) is collaborating with local Qatari charity, Hifz Al Naema, to redistribute surplus food and beverages to good causes in Qatar.

 

QACC and Hifz Al Naema, expect to redistribute 200-300kg of food and beverage everyday such as whole fruits, cereals, soft drinks, yoghurt and chocolates. 

 

Established in 2008, Hifz Al Naema was the first food bank to open in Qatar. The programme began with collecting surplus food from festivals, weddings and hotels and has since expanded to collecting and distributing surplus clothing, furniture, electronic devices and other appliances.

 

QACC senior vice president,  Michael Winner, said: “We are delighted to partner with Hifz Al Naema, a local Qatari charity that specializes in repackaging and redistributing surplus food and beverage. At QACC, we are continuously looking at ways to reduce waste and ensure an optimal food and beverage service to all our clients. This partnership ensures any unserved meals or unopened items will be redistributed to support those in need in our local community and reduce wastage at landfills.”

 

Hifz Al Naema public relations officer, Youssef Al-Khulaifi, said: “We are proud to partner with Qatar Aircraft Catering Company to provide meals to those in need in our community. Given the enormous scale of their operations, the redistribution of their surplus food and beverages will have a significant impact on those in need in our community. We hope this new collaboration, will shine a spotlight on this worthy cause and encourage other governmental and private sector organisations to partner with us.”
