City of Vienna avoids food waste
Wiener Tafel is a Viennese non-profit organization that fights against unequality and poverty in the City of Vienna, by rescuing food that is still suitable for consumption from going to waste.
Food that would normally be thrown away, e. g. from supermarkets, is collected and distributed to social institutions and to people that cannot afford a healthy and varied diet. Cooking workshops and the production of delicacies, such as jam, soups, chutneys or sugo made from rescued ingredients, completes the offer of Wiener Tafel and raises awarness on a sustainable economic system and life-style.
In 2021, Daikin Austria and Daikin Central Europe headquarters donated and installed several Daikin multi split systems for a perfect indoor climate at Wiener Tafel premises that provide comfortable working conditions for employees. Additionally, cooling and refrigeration systems are planned to be installed in the warehouse to ensure best storage conditions for rescued food. In order to spread the message of high importance of food safety, Daikin Austria chose Wiener Tafel delicacies as Christmas presents for Daikin partners.
