The Orri Running Committee (ORC) association, made up of producers of the premium mandarin variety Orri, has joined the 'Food 4 Heroes' initiative and thanks to its mediation has donated nearly 1,000 kilos of this protected variety, which will be distributed among the professionals and patients of the field hospital installed on the IFEMA campus in Madrid.
Guillermo Soler, ORC manager, said, “This is a small gesture with which we intend to thank the great heroes of this pandemic who are fighting on the front line every day to take care of us, protect us and make this situation that we are living pass what soon as possible."
“Food 4 Heroes” is an initiative in which dozens of restaurants, chains and food companies collaborate, working as a team, altruistically and in solidarity, with the aim of feeding health workers in hospitals during the coronavirus crisis.
“From the Orri Running Committee, as a producer association, we also do not forget to thank and highlight the effort being made by all farmers, supply chain operators, gatherers, clothing, logistics, supermarket workers, etc., of our country so that, in these delicate and extremely urgent moments, Spanish consumers can feed themselves and strengthen their immune system in the healthiest way,” said Soler.
