Making an Impact that matters in our community
What Corporate Responsibility means to Diana Carmichael:
Core to the operating strategy of any enlightened business is a dedication to responsible business practice, the creation of a quality workplace environment, and an awareness of their impact on local communities. At Diana Carmichael, we are passionate about giving back to society. Whenever possible we choose small businesses as suppliers, and in doing so we support women and by implication their families.
Diana Carmichael partners with Smart Meals Africa, an organisation which packs a well-balanced meal bag that contains: rice, lentils, and dehydrated vegetables, and distributes these to the poorest communities. One bag, which costs just R15, feeds up to 6 people. A percentage of every Diana Carmichael product sold goes to Smart Meals Africa, helping to support families with the provision of nutrition.
