Promutuel Assurance and La Coop fédérée highlight SOCODEVI’s CO-OP Week
The latest edition of Co-op Week in Canada was an opportunity for more than 300 Promutuel Assurance and La Coop fédérée employees, member institutions of our network, to learn more about the impact of SOCODEVI and its Foundation’s actions in developing countries.
In Quebec City, approximately 100 Promutuel Assurance managers and employees discovered more about the outcome of the financial support provided to El Ceibo, the headquarters of a cocoa production cooperative in Bolivia. Their contribution enabled this organization to set up and equip a laboratory for the research and development of new chocolate recipes that are less susceptible to warm weather temperatures and therefore be able to target tropical markets.
La Coop fédérée’s significant commitment to the projects organized by SOCODEVI and its Foundation were highlighted at the institution’s head office in Montreal. Alain Plouffe, director for SOCODEVI’s international programs, presented concrete examples of projects benefiting vulnerable populations around the world in which La Coop fédérée played a key role through its expertise and know-how. More than 200 people participated in the event.
Thank you to Promutuel Assurance and La Coop fédérée for your warm welcome!
