Godrej to support dabbawalas’ Rotibank scheme
Godrej Appliances on Tuesday said it will provide dabbawalas with customised cycles fitted with its mini-refrigerator 'Chotukool' to support the Mumbai Dabbawala Association's Rotibank initiative.
"Godrej Appliances is supporting this initiative through customised cycles fitted with 'Chotukool' that can retain cooling for up to 3-4 hours even without electricity, which will help dabbawalas to store food on the go and also preserve it overnight thereby enabling and empowering them to efficiently run this unique Rotibank initiative and scale it up further," the company said in a statement.
Mumbai's dabbawalas have been running the Rotibank initiative since 2015 to prevent wastage of food and feed the underprivileged.
"As a company that deals in appliances and promises brighter living, we are glad to be a part of such social initiatives which can contribute towards reducing hunger amongst the larger underprivileged sections of society," Godrej Appliances Business Head and EVP Kamal Nandi said.
