Promoting sustainable projects

The PHW Group also assumes social responsibility through its Heinz Lohmann Foundation. This not-for-profit foundation, which has been focusing on issues of future nutrition and nutritional behaviour since 1997, sees itself as an interface between science, agriculture and consumers.

A major element of the foundation’s work consists of promoting scientific research in universities and institutes. The foundation supports degree and PhD graduates working in scientific areas compatible with the purpose and aims of the foundation. It also backs sustainable projects dealing with subjects relating to nutrition, for example, in the quest to provide healthier school meals.
