Fyffes Gains Recognition for Social Responsibility; Sheila McCann-Morrison and Genivaldo Pereira Discuss



HONDURAS - At AndNowUKnow, we love to see industry aces gaining their well-deserved recognition. Fyffes is celebrating a recent milestone, as the Honduran Foundation for Socially Responsible Business (FUNDAHRSE) recently honored the supplier’s melon business Sol Group with the coveted FUNDAHRSE Socially Responsible Company Seal for the years 2022–2023.

Sheila McCann-Morrizon, Chief Supply Officer, Fyffes“To receive the FUNDAHRSE Seal is a true honor and reflects the scale of the transformation of our winter melon business,” commented Sheila McCann-Morrison, Chief Supply Officer, Fyffes. “The new leadership team in Honduras have leveraged their skills and expertise to ensure that our melon business promotes wellbeing not only for our customers but the local communities and, most important of all, our employees.”

This distinct recognition marks the provider’s achievement after obtaining an average of 96 percent in seven thematic indicators for corporate social responsibility. FUNDAHRSE conducted an audit of Fyffes melon farm Suragroh, in Choluteca, southern Honduras, to evaluate compliance with its INDICARSE tool, which is ratified by the ISO 26000 standard for social responsibility, a press release explained.
