Deal with Diabetes – campaign of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity
Diabetes it is one of the most onerous civilization diseases. In Poland, nearly 2 million people suffer from it. What helps many patients in everyday life is full information concerning food they consume.
We know that every person suffering from must know a number of exchanges to properly calculate insulin dose he or she takes at meal consumption. Healthy people do not have this problem, because their pancreases automatically excrete a respective quantity of insulin.
For this reason, we joined “Deal with Diabetes” project and we will systematically publish, on packages, information about the number of carbohydrate and protein-fatty exchanges included in our products.
The first product to participate in “Deal with Diabetes” program was our Kremowy (Creamy) Yoghurt. Information about the quantity of exchanges is placed on its package in a tiny box next to the Orchestra’s heart symbol. The information states the content of exchanges in 100 g of the product, e.g.:
Content of exchanges in 100 g: WW 1.2 WBT 1.4 Content of exchanges in a package: WW 2.5 WBT 2.8.
For many years, we have been donating our products for the needs of Caritas – one of the major charity organizations operating in Poland and around the world. Caritas provides food, material and financial aid to the unemployed, the homeless, the sick, the elderly, children from poor families, as well as immigrants and refugees.
We regularly deliver our products to Food Banks, whose aim is reduction in areas of malnutrition and counteracting food wasting. Banks take part in solving local social and economic problems. The Food Bank Federation associates 22 banks and provides systematic aid to approximately 2000 organizations and institutions, supporting thereby roughly 1.5 million people.
