Petit Forestier: supporting and working with the French Federation of Food Banks through sport
22 “green” runners challenged themselves in support of the French Federation of Food Banks by participating in the Vincennes Half Marathon.
On Sunday 22 October, a “green” team took part in the Vincennes Half Marathon. Spurred on by team spirit, a sense of endeavour and gusto for sporting challenges, our runners and supporters wore the Petit Forestier colours with pride.
United by family values, the company used this event to strengthen its support for the Food Banks by allowing its employees to indulge in their passion for running.
Drawing on the enthusiasm of the runners, Petit Forestier is offering the Food Banks 1 kg of food per kilometre run. The 22 Petit Forestier half-marathon runners all crossed the finish line in admirable times. However, as is often the case, the strength lies in the team as a whole. Thanks to the performance of each individual, this “green” team will provide 484 kg of food to the Food Banks.
This half marathon is only the first initiative towards the National Collection for Food Banks: over the next few days, Petit Forestier will play an active role in making vehicles available as part of their Annual Collection.
Thank you to the supporters and congratulations to the runners!
A full time preoccupation
Looking resolutely to the future and concerned for the world of tomorrow, Petit Forestier attempts to integrate sustainable development into the daily life of the company and has responsible social, economic and environmental policies that take these challenges fully into account.
Our approach involves the implementation of corresponding practices and protocols in all areas of the business. We demand efforts by our suppliers and subcontractors, involve our employees and, in the eyes of public authorities and institutions, we represent a reliable partner. We respect and encourage regulations in the areas of the environment, labour and economic development, including in our international network. This strategy concerns all our services, products, purchases, properties, human resources…
The partnerships developed with manufacturers and institutions are just one illustration of our commitment. Our efforts also take the form of civic actions, initiating or participating in long term projects capable of producing benefits for the whole community.
For Petit Forestier, the choice of a supplier is based on ability, reliability and trust.
After signing an agreement, Petit Forestier issues a national listing for application in the French network and the international sites.
Petit Forestier favours loyal partnerships with its suppliers and, above and beyond a simple commercial arrangement, often works with suppliers in the early stages when launching new products.
