Bel Foundation


 
 

A Foundation to act on behalf of children

 
 

The Bel Foundation, created by the Bel Group and its reference shareholder Unibel, supports initiatives on behalf of children and teens, with a particular emphasis on food and dietary issues.

We focus on 4 broad areas of action:

  • Combatting child malnutrition
  • Supporting subsistence farming and market garden programs
  • Building infrastructures related directly to feeding children and teens
  • Educating and raising awareness about the components of a healthy and balanced diet

Since the Foundation was established in 2008, more than 150 projects have been supported, which represents almost one and a half million euros in donations made to charitable organizations that act on behalf of children around the world. We are proud of our support for concrete and sustainable initiatives that help communities where the Bel Group is present. These charity projects go hand in glove with Bel's mission to bring smiles to families all over the world, and they reflect our commitment to share with the greatest number of people possible.

We will continue to develop this momentum in the coming years to ensure that our Foundation resembles the image of our company, a human adventure with a mission our employees can be proud of. To that end, our employees are free to get involved in good citizenship initiatives on behalf of children and may solicit financial support from the Bel Foundation. Since 2010, the Foundation has awarded grants to 54 employee teams to help fund the local charitable initiatives in which they are directly involved. This is a way to extend the Group's mission beyond the company's doorstep and to remain close to our local communities..
