Solidarity sales of Parmesan cheese

Report on the Solidarity Sale in support of the victims of the war in Ukraine

At your request, R&D has organised a new solidarity sale of parmesan cheese to help the victims of the war in Ukraine (more details…)

Thanks to your great generosity, in a few weeks, we were able to:

  • Sell 3852 pieces each of about 1 kg of parmesan cheese
  • Raise 10.000in donations

All donations were channelled to our colleagues at the “EU staff Fund for a Fair and Sustainable Future” to support a project in Ukraine (link).

Thank you so much!

Your donations have contributed to funding the project:

«Supporting teenagers’ mental health in Ukraine»

to provide a psychological support for teenagers affected by the war in Ukraine.

This project was set up by the Zaporuka Foundation to provide a great psychological support to families of children with cancer.

This foundation has used its experience of over 15 years to help teenage victims of war by developing an online platform that will enable hundreds of teenagers every month to receive advice on mental health and confide in professional psychologists.


2nd solidarity sale:

In July 2018, R&D organized a new solidarity sale, this time of Parmesan, Pecorino and other organic cheeses from Amatrice in order to:

  • first, allow the shepherds to sell their cheese stocks;
  • second, help the population of Amatrice.

Your response to our call for donations exceeded all our expectations.

Thanks once again to your solidarity and generosity:

  • some cheese stocks are exhausted;
  • sales have increased, donations follow.

Faithful to our commitments, we will publish the balance sheet of this action as soon as it is finished.

1st solidarity sale:

In May 2017, R&D organized a solidarity sale of Parmesan to help the victims of the disastrous earthquakes in central Italy and especially the shepherds, artisanal and organic producers of Pecorino, Amatrice.

Thanks to your great generosity, in a few weeks we were able to:

  • sell 4,115 kg of Parmesan cheese;
  • collect € 12,008,52 of donations.

This made it possible to provide fodder (healthy feed for farm animals) to 5 artisanal and organic farms (see balance sheet).
