FGV group chief executive officer Datuk Haris Fadzilah Hassan said the contributions are meant for the B40 group, especially those affected by pay cuts and those dependent on daily wages.
He said the FGV FreB bags contain basic food items such as rice, SAJI cooking oil, PRAI sugar, SAJI mountain salt, SAJI instant noodles, SAJI sweetened creamer, SAJI evaporated creamer and SAJI chili sauce, products of the FGV Group.
“We understand the needs of the community especially for families in these trying times to ensure that food is always available.
“Being involved directly in the food supply chain industry, this contribution is very close to the heart and part of the FGV Group’s continuous efforts to support the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030,” he said in a statement today.
Haris Fadzilah said the first 3,000 FGV FReB bags were despatched on March 25 to selected NGOs namely Pertubuhan Amal Ibnu Sina Malaysia (PAPISMA) Selangor division, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Islam (PERKIM) Kapar division and Teraju Ekonomi Asnaf (TERAS).
