Makeen Program (Empowering People with Disability):
The “Makeen” program focuses on the training and employment of persons with disabilities at Savola and in other companies. Savola has already provided training and career opportunities for around 911 people with disabilities since the start of the program until 2016. As part of this project, we are also improving accessibility for disabled people at our facilities and doing everything we can to ensure that our company culture is welcoming and inspiring.
Negaderha Program (Food Waste Management):
Negaderha is a food waste reduction program, which was developed to address food waste as a national issue. The program works conducting research concerning food wastage to obtain understanding of its drivers, actors, and volumes of food waste at a national level; and accordingly equip the target groups with the practical tools and tips to improve their food waste management knowledge and practices. Negaderha also aims to engage the consumers in reducing food wastage by promoted community campaigns that are based on the most effective global experiences; and aligned with 2030 Vision to contribute to ensuring sustainable food security for the Kingdom. Negaderha forms strategic partnerships with various organizations across the different sectors. The program targets two main segments of society: the households and the HORECA (hotels, restaurants & cafes) sector. We also aim to expand our target groups in the upcoming stages of the program.
“Yumnak”, which is Arabic for “Your Right Hand” is Savola World’s Business Assistance Program, aiming to offer a helping hand and support SMEs in the FMCG space on their journey to success.
