Mr. Daren Lau, Chairman, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Tam Jai International, said, “With ‘Nourishing Communities’, ‘Uplifting People’ and ‘Preserving Nature’ at the heart of our ESG strategy, TJI is firmly committed to promoting the well-being of the community and creating shared value with our employees and partners. We are glad to have achieved fruitful results from our various sustainability and social responsibility endeavours over the past year, such as the TJI Education Support Scheme for Employees’ Children and partnering with charity organisations to repurpose surplus food into nourishing meals for those in need. In addition to the community, we also strive to reduce our environmental footprint. In Hong Kong, we introduced more eco-friendly paper cutlery for takeaways to reduce single-use plastics. We will continue to pursue innovative and impactful initiatives that help build a more sustainable future.”
