Every day, Sligro Food Group receives invitations to sponsor an event, association, activity or good cause. Sligro Food Group does not engage in sponsorship for its own sake. Sponsorship is about making deliberate and carefully considered choices.
And however good the aims of the organisers, we are unable to help most of them. As a result, we have decided to offer long-term support for a number of social activities. This avoids spreading the available funding too thinly over many different projects.
As for support for good causes, our policy is not dictated by the latest fad or by what others are doing. We look for causes that fit with Sligro Food Group’s activities or working practices and we support a number of smaller initiatives that have links to a locality or business unit. However, our range of activities is so wide and there are so many suppliers and customers who also want to support good causes that it is not always possible to accede to their requests. There is also the danger of arbitrariness.
We therefore make careful choices and have decided to support the Liliane Fund, Villa Pardoes, Verwenzorg, Voedselbank, DoSocial and JOGG. Read more about these good causes on the dedicated pages.
