The year 2020 began with several environmental crises such as wildfires in Australia, hurricanes and floods in many parts of the world, locust infestations across Africa and India, as well as the most recent COVID-19 pandemic that took the lives of many. All these serve as a reminder that the safety and well-being of humans are dependent on the planet’s health.
Food Empire’s coffee plant, Indus Coffee, has organised an event in conjunction with World Environment Day on 5 June 2020 to plant 50 tree saplings to increase the greenery within our factory premise. 30 of our staff gathered during the event with safe distancing in place as we provided affirmation to protect existing trees and plant more saplings to ensure the green belts. This is a start of our green initiative and we look forward to share more of our plans in time to come.
