Winner of 2014 Nestlé CSV Prize announced
Today, Honey Care Africa (HCA) was announced as the overall winner of the 2014 Nestlé Creating Shared Value Prize during the global Creating Shared Value Forum, co-organised by Nestlé and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
HCA, an East African company, will use its share of the CHF 500’000 prize money to support its work to help 35’000 farmers in South Sudan become commercial beekeepers by 2017 – a concept that has already raised the income of more than 15’000 Kenyan farmers.
Mr. Madison Ayer, CEO of HCA said he was delighted with the win: “The Creating Shared Value Prize is such a wonderful recognition of the hard work and passion of our team, farmers, and customers in Africa. And what is even more exciting is the opportunity to build a long-term relationship with Nestlé, as we leverage our sustainable local supply chain with Nestlé’s global resources and expertise.”
