Saputo, an SJE Group investment, has renewed its long-standing partnership with the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie (GDPL), a non-profit organisation representing one of the largest health movements in Québec. To support this societal change of adopting a healthy lifestyle, Saputo is contributing more than $2.1 million over four years to fund two signature events: La Course, a 270-km youth running relay, and the 1000 KM cycling relay.
In 2018 alone, GPDL had over 527,000 participants take part in its challenges. Saputo's donation certainly helps contribute towards a healthier Québec.
Community engagement is important to Saputo. In this regard, the company strives to invest 1% of its pre-tax profits each year in community programs and organisations that promote a healthy lifestyle for people of all ages. In fact, this is a fundamental criteria when the SJE Group considers its equity investment targets.
The SJE Group congratulates Lino Saputo Jr and the Board for their ongoing commitment and contribution.
