Albert Heijn Foundation
10-Year old Albert Heijn Foundation opens the trading day
Euronext’s Amsterdam stock exchange is opened by the AH Foundation, which celebrates its 10-year anniversary this month. Chairman Cees van Vliet, director of stores and logistics of Albert Heijn, sounds the gong together with colleagues and employees.
The AH Foundation is collaborating with the ICCO development organization. Together they develop programs for employees of suppliers in Africa, in the fields of education, housing and healthcare. This year, the AH Foundation will expand to South America.
Over the last ten years, over 30,000 children and adults in ten different African countries have enjoyed education through the AH Foundation. Together with suppliers, investments were made in new schools, resource centers and lesson programs. For example, 29 schools were built or renovated through the sale of fresh fruit salads from Ghana.
Albert Heijn is part of the Euronext listed Ahold Delhaize (ticker symbol: AD).
