QMIN DELIVERS OVER 57,000 MEALS TO ASSIST FLOOD AFFECTED COMMUNITIES IN ASSAM
MUMBAI, JULY 27, 2022: Jamsetji Tata had once said, “In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder in business, but is in fact the very purpose of its existence.” This ethos has always been the guiding force for Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), India’s largest hospitality company. In line with its values and focus on community as defined by its ESG+ framework, Paathya, IHCL has extended a helping hand to flood affected families in Assam with Vivanta Guwahati offering over 57,000 meals from its culinary platform, Qmin, across 17 affected villages.
Gaurav Pokhariyal, Executive Vice President – Human Resources, Indian Hotels Company, said, “IHCL has always been at the forefront to be of service to the nation during times of need. The Assam floods are a devastating calamity that have impacted over 14 districts across the state. Distributing over 57,000 Qmin meals in 24 days to impacted people at far flung areas spread across Assam is a testament to our team’s
resilience in the face of adversity. At IHCL, we keep community at the heart of all that we do and will continue in our endeavor to assist the people of Assam.”
With over 9 lac people affected by the floods in Assam in addition to expansive destruction of crops, livestock and property, the local community has united to provide key resources and amenities to those adversely impacted. Vivanta Guwahati rapidly assembled a team to provide nourishing, wholesome Qmin meals in association with Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and World Central Kitchen. Given the immense flooding in the region, the team has travelled via local waterways on canoes, rafts and vel – boats made of banana trees – to access people in distant villages.
This community-focused initiative is a part of IHCL’s long-term commitment to drive its sustainability and social impact measures under it ESG+ framework, Paathya.
