Lallemand steps in to support COVAX-UNICEF campaign

Lallemand contributes to the unprecedented global COVID-19 vaccination campaign via the COVAX Facility with a $US 100,000 donation to UNICEF Canada. With over 4,500 employees on five continents and a worldwide presence, Lallemand has also set up a global dollar-for-dollar employee matching campaign, up to an additional $US 25,000. This means that a total of $US 150,000 could be donated to the global vaccination efforts.

 

Cooperation spells success… our motto is once again relevant, and this donation is one way for us to walk the talk. To face this global pandemic, concerted efforts and exceptional actions must be deployed. This is an empowering opportunity for Canadian business and philanthropic leaders to be a part of making history. Lallemand is a global company and has benefited tremendously from interactions across borders and so all employees are encouraged to participate in this campaign. Any amount will help, however small or large it may be. The pandemic doesn’t end for anyone, until it ends for everyone. This is a race against time, and there is a real need to act swiftly to vaccinate as many people globally as possible.” concludes Antoine Chagnon.
