Victory Nursery School
The DAVA Foods group is sponsoring a school project in Tanzania, Africa. The Victory Nursery School in the Majengo District is preparing children aged 4-8 for primary school. The district is very poor and many children are growing up with parents who suffer from alcohol and substance abuse.
Helping the children attend school and ensuring them one healthy meal a day will contribute to society in the long run.
Health problems, both physical and psychological, can be discovered at an early stage. Less school drop-outs mean less alcohol and drugs abuse, and less crime in the future. It is a long term project which we will follow closely.
Minimizing the impact of transport
Focus on resources
The optimization of resources in our production is equally important. For example, we closely monitor and optimize our consumption of electricity, water, chemicals, etc. In Sweden we take part in the REPA organization’s recovery system and a system has been established for internal recycling. We strive to reduce or even eliminate waste in our production. All broken eggshells are dried and used for animal feed and fertilizers, while all discarded eggs are used for biogas production.
Our packaging is made from recycled paper and recyclable PET plastic. All pulp trays are compostable and labels are FSC marked. Our Swedish and Finnish plants are certified to ISO 14001, and DAVA Foods in Hadsund is also working towards an ISO 14001 certification.
