Belazu win Employer of the Year
The Grocer’s judges where impressed by Belazu’s formalised CSR programme in which all colleagues from across the business can get involved. The programme includes volunteering for the Belazu Foundation in work hours, conducting factory tours for school students and work for the holiday hunger project.
Since 2003 Belazu has partnered with The Zakoura Foundation, a charity which provides education to vulnerable populations in rural areas within Morocco. In 2011 they started supporting a school project in Tildi, Marrakech, enabling them to support over 500 children and young women. Each year a group of Belazu colleagues have the opportunity to visit the school in Tildi to see first-hand the difference the Belazu Foundation is making. Every penny that is raised by the Belazu Foundation is matched by the Belazu Ingredient Company. Find out more about the Belazu Foundation at: www.belazu.com/about/foundation/
Belazu has also developed its own training programme, encouraging colleagues to progress in the business and share ideas with senior leadership in the form of dedicated committees.
Well done team from everyone here at WJFG!
