Based on the initiative of a group of employees, Pagnifique Uruguay has implemented a program to donate surplus inventory from its bakeries at the end of each business day to shelters and food centers for children of less privileged backgrounds. Donations are being channeled through a non-profit organization called “Plato Lleno”, which operates food redistribution networks in 4 countries to facilitate the link between sources and recipients of surplus food products. Currently, 46 Pagnifique points of sale are participating in the program and the company is planning to expand coverage with the goal of donating products from 100% of its stores by the end of the year.
Pagnifique is a leading regional producer of frozen bread and pastries, operating state-of-the-art production facilities in Montevideo, Uruguay; Miami, Florida, US; and Mexico City, Mexico.
