Representatives of TIRME, the non-profit organizations BANCO de ALIMENTOS, MALLORCA SENSE FAM and CARITAS, and the agricultural cooperatives AGROMALLORCA, ES MERCA and SON MARCH, have signed three collaboration agreements with the ultimate objective of distributing food between families and people in a situation of food insecurity in Mallorca.

The project thus aims to foster the relationship between local food producers and NGOs dedicated to combating food shortages, a problem aggravated in recent months by the COVID 19 crisis.

The three alliances have been established as follows: BANCO de ALIMENTOS-AGROMALLORCA, MALLORCA SENSE FAM-ES MERCA, and finally CARITAS-SON MARCH.

TIRME has donated 10,000 euros to each of the three non-profit entities, they undertake to purchase products for that total value in each of the three agri-food cooperatives. The NGOs will identify the food needs, collect the products and distribute them among families and people in a precarious situation. For their part, the entities of the primary sector will make all requested food available, facilitating the logistics for its collection.

Finally, TIRME will also make the compost generated through the organic fraction selected in homes and economic activities on the island available to agricultural cooperatives, thus closing the productive circle of the agri-food sector.

This initiative represents a further step in the entities' commitment to the circular economy, environmental sustainability and social responsibility. And it does so through alliances, a mechanism established as ideal in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 17) to achieve these goals through collaboration between institutions, the private sector and civil society.
