International solidarity: destination Brazil

Sacmi Imola, Carpigiani and Mec3 – coordinated by CISL Imola – join forces to provide practical help for the Sao Bernardo community

Thanks to close collaboration on the part of some of the region’s biggest manufacturers – Carpigiani of Anzola dell’Emilia, Sacmi Imola and Rimini-based Mec3 – a good measure of practical solidarity has been sent to Brazil.

In the town of Sao Bernardo – where the professional training centre named after don Leo Commissari is located – this chain of solidarity has, under the guiding hand of CISL Imola, provided new opportunities for growth and, at the same time, given children there a special gift! The protagonist of the initiative is, in fact, non other than Italian ice-cream, something which we take for granted but extremely difficult to produce locally because of a lack of proper machines and raw materials and, to no small extent, the huge bureaucracy that obstructs import-export dealings with this South American country.

Bologna-based firm Carpigiani – a leading international maker of ice-cream machines – has therefore donated three machines to the mission (pasteuriser, a soft ice-cream maker and a slush unit). Mec3, instead, has supplied the raw materials and Sacmi has placed the resources of its Brazilian subsidiary, Sacmi Do Brasil, at the mission’s disposal to speed up and, essentially, make sure the entire operation is concluded successfully.

The goal? To put a smile on the faces of Sao Bernardo’s kids but also, from a broader viewpoint, provide solid employment opportunities: thanks to the donation, in fact, it will be possible to make ice-cream not just for the mission’s guests but for the entire local community through the opening of a proper ice-cream kiosk. “We’ve activated our import-export channel”, stated Sacmi’s CEO Paolo Mongardi, “and have organised the shipment and installation of the machines, thus continuing the tradition of solidarity that has long characterised our cooperative”.
