We are pleased to inform you that Maerki Baumann & Co. AG will support this year's soup day organized by Schweizer Tafel on Thursday, 22 November 2018, at Paradeplatz. Starting at noon, our employees will help with serving soup and collecting donations for Schweizer Tafel. In Switzerland, over half a million people in private households are affected by poverty. At the same time, some 2,000,000 tonnes of food are wasted every year in between production and consumption, i.e. around 117 kg per person lands in the rubbish each year. Schweizer Tafel forges a bridge between surplus and shortage by distributing food that is still perfectly good to eat to the needy. The annual "Night Shopping" event will take place on this evening in Zurich, when the Christmas lights are traditionally switched on. Our soup servers will take turns to serve you until 8 p.m. at Paradeplatz and celebrate the start of the pre-Christmas period together with you. Stop by and enjoy some soup on behalf of a good cause. We look forward to your visit.
