Fyffes say thank you
DUNDALK-based banana importer Fyffes has thanked the people of Louth for supporting their recent humanitarian aid programme which saw a million polio vaccinations being administered to young children in Nigeria and other countries threatened by the deadly virus.
The public gave their support to the project through their purchase of Fyffes bagged bananas through outlets including Dunnes Stores, SuperValu and other leading retail chains.
This recent programme followed an earlier campaign carried out in 2012 in which Fyffes funded the purchase of 30,000 mosquito nets supplied to families in Mozambique to protect against the spread of malaria.
