“The barbaric war of aggression against Ukraine – a situation that has affected us deeply both personally and as a business – has demonstrated that public affairs work can also extend far beyond lobbying activities. As a cooperative, REWE Group firmly believes that we must face such times of crisis together; for example, by playing a role in helping to address the huge challenge of providing the people in Ukraine with urgently needed food. This is why, we began working closely with the German Food Bridge, an initiative of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture, at the beginning of March. Together, we have already sent approximately 70 trucks carrying more than half a million litres of drinking water and over 1,000 tons of food to the region.
For our Opinion of the Month, we spoke to André Pilling about the work of the German Food Bridge. The situation on the ground continues to be dramatic, and the people there urgently need help and support.”
