Electrolux extends the "Sustainable Gastronomy" social project to other countries.

A Global Project, pioneer in Brazil, confirms its third edition in Curitiba, and will be extended to other regions.


Reinventing experiences of taste, care and well-being, the Sustainable Gastronomy program is already starting for its third edition in the city of Curitiba. On May 11, Electrolux along with its supporters, celebrated the graduation of 16 students from the second edition.


"Sustainable Gastronomy" is part of For the Better, one of Electrolux's global commitments to help address key global challenges such as hunger, malnutrition, food waste and responsible consumption. In addition, it also cooperates to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals established by the UN Agenda 2030. The program is funded by the Food Foundation, a global institution of Electrolux that supports local initiatives focused on food and sustainability.

Due to the great adhesion in Sustainable Gastronomy, the program already has its third edition confirmed for May in Curitiba, in addition to being expanded to the city of São Carlos, in São Paulo, and Rosario, Argentina. "Apart from the cities in Latin America, Sustainable Gastronomy is in the implementation phase in other countries, such as Egypt, Russia, and even a similar deployment in Dubai," says Valmir Buscarioli, Vice President of Human Resources Electrolux Latin America.

The perspective of the social project is to train more than 60 unemployed people in the city of Curitiba within the year 2018. With the awareness of the best use of food, the company estimates that about 1,000 people will be impacted at each class formed. "This comes along with the appreciation of the subject, which is growing, and the interest of the population to participate in our course, with the vacancies increasingly disputed. We are really fulfilling the purpose of our company, of the 18 students trained in the last class, 8 are already working formally and the others are undertaking or taking better care of their families," explains Valmir Buscarioli.


The project counts on the support to AIESEC, Foundation of Social Action Curitiba, Sodexo On-Site, Stop Hunger Institute and Worldchefs.
