Grupo IFA and Gasol Foundation join together to give you tips on nutrition that will help you look after your health.
GRUPO IFA AND GASOL FOUNDATION, A PARTNERSHIP FOR HEALTH
The partnership of Grupo IFA and Gasol Foundation was created from a desire to promote healthy habits in Spanish society and thus improve the health of the generations to come. We are going to launch a series of prevention and awareness-raising actions aimed at facing this challenge.
We will take advantage of Grupo IFA’s proximity and wide geographical reach to combat the bad eating habits which represent one of today’s most serious problems and affect child and family health.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
The agreement signed between Grupo IFA and Gasol Foundation includes a wide range of activities and programmes in the field of nutrition and sport.
It is a commitment to a long-term pedagogic undertaking, with a clear educational and training component.
This will include practical actions at Grupo IFA points of sale and the activities organised by Gasol Foundation.
All of this will be backed up with recreational activities for children and families based on the principle of educating on how to live a healthy life:
- Advice on healthy eating habits.
- Live demonstrations.
- Healthy shopping, healthy recipes and usage tips.
- We will take part in Gasol Foundation’s workshops, camps and schools.

A better world is possible
For Grupo IFA, Corporate Social Responsibility is more than just a department: it is a belief. The company works towards doing things sustainably in its daily operations from a wide range of perspectives.
One of the fundamental ways of helping to improve society, and in particular the growth of our country, is to create new jobs that will enable more and more people to join the job market. Overall, our Affiliates currently provide employment for over 60,000 workers, with over 2,500 jobs created in the past year.
GRUPO IFA makes an active contribution to local solidarity projects through its Affiliates, which develop and implement social actions within their areas of influence. Our presence the length and breadth of Spain means that each of our Affiliates’ initiatives becomes part of a shared national solidarity project that links and includes the entire Group.
Another of IFA’s priorities is the needs of its employees. As part of its efforts to achieve a balance between its workers’ professional and personal lives, Grupo IFA is working to ensure proper timetable management and shift planning for its more than 60,000 workers. The company also offers its employees continuous training to ensure it is always giving its customers the best possible service.
IFA’s commitment to small, local businesses and agreements with suppliers in each region guarantee the quality and freshness of our products while also helping to protect the environment. Simplification of the supply chain leads to significant energy savings and considerably reduces CO2 emissions. In addition, the proximity of our stores prevents consumers from having to make long car journeys to go to their local supermarket.
The group forms part of the steering committee of the recycling organisation Ecoembes and applies sustainability and environmental protection policies throughout its various spheres. It promotes the use of new, more sustainable materials, reduction of single-use bags and packaging, and we have signed up to the initiative launched by AECOC (the Spanish Association of Manufacturers and Distributors) to reduce food waste and keep it to an absolute minimum.
