Not only does your participation in #Cook2Connect allow you to share a great meal with your loved ones, you also know you are creating positive change with your purchasing power. Businesses know that customers now are looking beyond pricing and quality, MGI Entertainment’s General Manager of Content, Byron Keane observes, “They want brands to be aligned with causes that they care about.”
Nature Nate’s Honey gives back to women, families and villages in need through Honey Gives Hope. For every bottle of raw, unfiltered honey that they sell, consumers know that their money is going towards good causes like Breast Cancer Awareness and supporting local beekeepers.
Similarly, D’Orsogna works to lower their carbon footprint through reducing plastic content in packaging, separating recyclable materials and using the latest energy and water conservation technology to be a more sustainable food manufacturer. D’Orsogna’s new Melbourne plant features 8500m2 of rooftop solar producing 1 megawatt of electricity.
Individuals taking part in #Cook2Connect know they are giving back to both local and wider communities. Consumers know they are championing local brands with shared values who are supporting their communities in need. Additionally, for every dollar donated OzHarvest provides two meals to those in need.
So, with open kitchens, hearts and ears while you ‘Share a Plate with a Mate’, join #Cook2Connect in providing warmth and food to our local and wider community.
