Unilever brand Natura’s joins forces with Global FoodBanking Network to combat food insecurity

Natura’s, the popular Central American tomato sauce & refried beans brand, on Monday announced it partnered with the Global FoodBanking Network to help build food security in Central America.

This collaborative initiative reaffirms the Unilever brand’s commitment to positively impacting communities in Central America — where the brand was born more than 50 years ago.

Natura’s has donated $100,000 to GFN, the international nonprofit organization powering community-led food banks to alleviate global hunger — across six continents in more than 50 countries — helping it to expand its mission of fighting food insecurity in Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica. This financial support will help GFN members in Central America provide essential food and resources to those who need it most, making significant strides in improving the lives of countless individuals and communities.

The partnership is forged by Englewood Cliffs-based Unilever’s global business unit and white space partner. Nabomita Bagchi, head of Global Nutrition Business Group Unilever International, said: “Our partnership with the Global FoodBanking Network represents a pivotal step forward in our journey to extend our impact to people in markets, who need it the most. This partnership reflects our dedication to the fight against food insecurity.

“We invite our consumers to stand with us in this endeavor. With each Natura’s purchase, they are not just buying a product; they are becoming part of our mission to alleviate hunger and improve lives. Together, we can make a meaningful difference.”

Natura’s and GFN are determined to work together to create a brighter future for those facing food insecurity in Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica.
