Largest donation in Vegemite history

Kraft Foods Australia and a group of its suppliers has formed a collaborative partnership to deliver a special Christmas gift to Foodbank Australia.

The suppliers donated ingredients, materials, time and expertise to produce 100,000 jars of Vegemite for distribution to Australian families doing it tough. The partnership marks the single biggest donation of Vegemite in its 90 year history and the first collaborative venture with its suppliers for a charitable cause.

“We believe every Australian should have a healthy start to the day with a nutritious and delicious breakfast. Through the Foodbank collaborative supply program, thousands of disadvantaged families will have the opportunity to enjoy Australia’s favourite breakfast spread, the iconic Vegemite, the next time they sit down at the breakfast table”, said Kraft Foods Australia Head of Spreads and Grocery, Darren O’Brien.

The companies which collaborated were: AMCOR Closures, Coopers Brewery, Fermex, Grain Products Australia, Labelmakers Group, Lion, O-I Asia Pacific, Royce Communications, SAB, Savannah and VISY.

Foodbank Chair, Enzo Allara, said: “This donation from Kraft Foods and its suppliers will mean we have Vegemite for the essential school breakfast programs we support to provide a nutritious start to the day for thousands of children who would otherwise go to their classrooms hungry.”

Foodbank provides rescued and donated food to over 2,500 charities and community groups for distribution to people struggling to provide for themselves. While Foodbank is appreciative of every donation that comes through its doors from food industry, one of its challenges is ensuring there is a regular supply of the key foods that form the backbone of a nutritious diet. This is where Foodbank’s national food industry partners, such as Kraft Foods, generously step in providing straight out donations of essential products.

The delivery of Vegemite is an extension of Kraft’ Foods’ ongoing support of Foodbank. In 2011 Kraft Foods donated the equivalent of 650,000 meals for distribution to people in need.
