In 2022, AH Foundation worked with 36 suppliers operating in 13 countries, nine of which are in Africa and four in South America.

The character is Solidarity
Solidarity supports the AH Foundation’s projects to further improve the living conditions of employees, while at the same time making improvements aimed at an environment that has a positive impact on employees’ daily lives. Starting April 1, Solidaridad will be a partner of the AH Foundation, and the organization will support suppliers in their project proposals, decision-making process and monitoring of funds available through the AH Foundation.

Marit van Egmond, CEO Albert Heijn and President of the AH Foundation: “I look forward to working with Solidaridad, which supports the AH Foundation in the projects of our regular fruit and vegetable suppliers in Africa and South America. For Albert Heijn, the long-term partnership with these new suppliers means better for our customers every day. In addition, I am proud of the impact we have made as AH Foundation and the difference we make in local projects such as building houses, improving and funding schools, health and personal development.

Heske Werburg, Director of Solidaridad: “We are delighted with this collaboration with the AH Foundation. It is important for supermarkets to contribute to improving the living and working conditions of their suppliers. Together with suppliers in Africa and South America, we want to make a difference for the farmers and workers who produce fruit and vegetables for Albert Heijin.
