MUMBAI: Avashya Foundation, the CSR arm of Allcargo Logistics, hosted Mango Mania, its annual mango festival at the Allcargo Logistics office in Mumbai on June 10, 2022 to celebrate the flavour, fragrance and taste of the king of the fruits. At the day-long celebration, the farmers from Karjat and Mokhada in Maharashtra sold more than 1000 dozens of mangoes to Allcargo employees.

The yearly occasion is a part of Avashya Foundation’s Maitree initiative which aims to promote environment conservation and support livelihood generation among communities from the rural areas of Maharashtra. The mangoes sold at the festival were produced by the trees planted under Maitree.

While commenting on the success of Mango Mania, Arathi Shetty, Non-Executive Director, Allcargo Logistics said, “Mango Mania is one of the many high points of Maitree. The festival is a testimony to our commitment to support rural communities by encouraging them to plant trees for conserving the environment and generating sustainable livelihoods. The encouraging response from our colleagues at Allcargo at the annual festival has further strengthened our resolve to plan a more widespread roll-out of Maitree with a goal to plant 1 million trees by 2024 and support the beneficiary communities to market the produce effectively. We continue to organise such initiatives to make people in our company aware of the importance of environment conservation and the goal of Maitree to make farmers self-reliant sustainably.”
