The International Scope of Bacardi Limited
As the creator of more than 200 unique flavors, varieties, and types of alcohol-based products, Bacardi is widely popular in diverse regions around the globe. However, Bacardi Cuba has consistently given back to their global community. Specifically, Bacardi Limited upholds a corporate mission known as the “Bacardi Limited Philanthropy and Community Involvement Mission.” With this focus, the company’s leaders and employees aim to serve a diverse array of communities in countries around the world. As a result, Bacardi Limited strives to help all employees gain a greater sense of connection to the communities and regions where they work, live, and spend their time.
Aligning with this philanthropic mission, Bacardi Cuba has a solid reputation of providing assistance to communities and regions in great need. For example, the company donated and volunteered to assist devastating catastrophes such as Asia’s tsunami, China’s great earthquake, Hurricanes in Cuba and the United States, and so forth. Even at the local level, the company has encouraged and supported local community fund raising efforts and community involvement practices. Bacardi Limited employees from around the world actively participate in various local philanthropic pursuits with their co-workers.
Bacardi Limited and the PADF
By working with the PADF, Bacardi Limited’s $50,000 donation is put towards providing citizens of Haiti with fundamental resources and supplies. With this money, Haitian citizens are able to be provided with medical supplies, food, water, as well as an array of essentials for personal treatment and sustainability.
