In a bid to extend their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the community, the management of Fair Trade Premium limited, and Premier Roses Farm Limited donated over 200 blankets among other goodies to farm workers to appreciate them for their good work.
The rose farm was one of the horticulture companies affected by the global Covid-19 lockdown, however, Ruparelia Group is one company known for motivating its staff and customers.
The donation was a charitable gesture aimed at improving the livelihoods of the farm workers and to also establish a cordial relationship between them and the two companies.
