Supporting Surrounding Communities

We are paying increasing attention to situations of need in the surrounding communities, endeavouring to promote social cohesion and breaking the cycles of poverty and malnutrition.

By tradition and out of a sense of mission, the Jerónimo Martins Group is deeply involved with the communities in which it is present.

It endeavours to have a positive impact on them from a social and economic point of view, through the products it provides, the employment it generates and the support it grants to causes and institutions that help the more vulnerable groups in society, such as children, young people and the elderly.

The most significant support provided by the Group, either directly or indirectly, is generally in the form of donations in foodstuffs, in order to contribute towards the fight against hunger and malnutrition because, as the Food Distribution leader in the countries where it operates, the Group believes this to be its responsibility.
