AGT Foods Africa teamed up with Food Forward SA, which is a Non-Profit Organisation, expanding their social responsibility and providing dry food goods to tens of thousands of people throughout South Africa. AGT will be supplying monthly food donations which include a pulses and grains. Food Forward SA was established in 2009; has to date provided over 150 million meals throughout South Africa and adopts the same mantra as AGT Foods – to reduce hunger in South Africa. Dean Miller, Corporate Affairs Manager at AGT Foods says, “The team-up with Food Forward SA makes perfect sense because they are the largest food distribution charity in South Africa”.
