Mundiriz and its suppliers: a commitment beyond the cropland
After a period of interruption due to the pandemic, Mundiriz, our Company in Morocco, has recently celebrated its annual meeting with its rice suppliers in the Gharb region. This event is part of the initiatives developed by the company to engage in a deeper relationship with its suppliers, encourage fellowship, and cooperation amongst suppliers. It is also an opportunity for both parties, Mundiriz and its suppliers, to share and generate further knowledge of good production practices, as to learn about their concerns, to aim for a sustainable and efficient management of the company’s supply chain.
One of the draws of the event is the traditional raffle, under notary vigilance, that Mundiriz carries out among its suppliers. The prize consists of a set of trips to make the pilgrimage to the Mecca, to many of them being a unique opportunity to do so. The raffle winners, throughout the trip, account with the accompany of one of Mundiriz’s employees.
In this edition, in a bid to thank and reward the effort and commitment of its suppliers, Mundiriz has increased the number of trips to Mecca from 10 to 15 and has also added six additional prizes consisting of six Samsung TVs. Five of them have been awarded to the farmers who have obtained the best agricultural yields in each of the five growing areas, and the sixth for the female farmer who has achieved the best yield in all areas. The latter being a recognition of the great role played by women in the field, as well as a measure to promote equality.
After the awards ceremony ended, all attendees enjoyed the excellence of Moroccan gastronomy.
