Many of you have asked us to organise another solidarity sale, and as always R&D remains at your service. All the more so when it comes to translating our commitment to solidarity into action, and solidarity is always at the heart of what we do.

To give staff every guarantee that their donations will be used effectively, we deem it important to entrust them to organisations made up of and run by colleagues, just like R&D, accountable at all times for the use of the funds received.

The Parmesan cheese which is the subject of this solidarity sale

As in previous years, and as you had asked us to do when you expressed your complete satisfaction, R&D has once again called on Punto Latte (link), a family-run company with a ” short supply chain”, which uses only milk from its own production for the preparation of Parmesan cheese and which has received several international awards for the quality of its “Parmigiano Reggiano DOP”, including the silver medals for 24-month Parmesan at the World DOP Cheese Competitions. 

The Parmesan cheese is additive-free, gluten-free and made from top-quality raw materials. It will be delivered in vacuum packs of about one kilo and can be stored in the refrigerator for several months.

 “Punto Latte”, sensitive to the various causes we support, has decided not to increase its price despite the economic crisis, and to supply us with a product of exceptional quality!

Thus, the final price will be 17.5 € per kilo of parmesan including your 2 € donation.

This is a basic donation proposal,

if you wish, you can contribute more generously and support our ongoing projects
