Rademaker BV has announced its new partnership with the social enterprise, The Women’s Bakery.
The Women’s Bakery educates women and builds bakeries in East Africa. By providing comprehensive business education and vocational training, The Women’s Bakery helps women launch and profitably manage bakeries. Bakeries are built in the women's communities, meeting local demand with local supply, and all ingredients are sourced from their communities. The bread produced by these women is highly nutritious and affordable, granting community members access to inexpensive, healthy snacks. As a result, The Women's Bakery successfully alleviates poverty and hunger in Rwanda and Tanzania.
Rademaker believes that it is important to address food security, nutrition and economic empowerment as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. The Women's Bakery work directly aligns with these goals and allows Rademaker to do more than simply donate cash. It contributes expertise and knowledge geared to increase their positive impact. Rademaker’s expertise lies in improving processes and efficiently scaling up production in bakery businesses. Rademaker helps The Women's Bakery to professionalize their operations and expand their teaching facilities. As a result, bakeries become independent more quickly and more women can be taught to start running their own bakeries. This strong collaboration allows Rademaker to reach its ambitious goal to provide nutrient rich, affordable food to the most vulnerable people in society.
Rademaker looks forward to a strong partnership with The Women’s Bakery.
