Nous prenons position sur des choix responsables!

Nous avons toujours su que le fait d’être un grand brasseur implique plus que le simple brassage.

Fidèles à cette tradition, nous sommes extrêmement fiers d’être la première entreprise de brassage au Canada à mettre un tampon de responsabilité sur nos produits. Dès le mois de mars, vous commencerez à voir ce tampon sur les emballages de Molson Canadian, de Coors Light et de Molson Dry en Ontario et au Québec. Vous finirez par le voir sur toutes nos marques brassées au Canada et sur chaque format d’emballage vendu partout.

Ce tampon est un symbole de notre engagement envers quatre principaux secteurs de production, de vente et de consommation responsables de la bière de prédilection dont nous sommes si fiers. Il s’agit aussi d’une invitation lancée à tous les Canadiens de nous appuyer afin de rendre ces questions de responsabilité encore plus prédominantes.

Nos icônes sont aussi à la disposition d’autres brasseurs au Canada! Au cours des prochains mois, des brasseurs tels que Picaroon’s Traditional Ales, Cassel Brewery Company et Village Brewery se joindront à nous pour promouvoir des icônes selon leur propre version.

Et maintenant que vous pourrez constater notre engagement envers des choix responsables sur nos produits, nous tenons à ce que vous sachiez exactement ce qu’il implique. Pour plus d’informations, visitez notre site sur les choix responsables!

SALUONS LES CHOIX RESPONSABLES!

64 Projects Across Canada Still in the Running for Molson Coors Community Cheer Grants

 

Following last fall’s announcement of the Molson Coors Community Cheer program, more than 100 communities across Canada applied to receive funding in support of their projects. Currently, 64 of those projects remain in the running for a piece of the up to $1-million available and Canadians have until 5pm EST this Friday to “cheer” in support of the programs in their city or province. By visiting OurCommunityCheer.com and registering their cheers before the deadline, the public will determine which projects make it through as finalists – provided they receive 225 cheers or more. A committee formed by Molson Coors will evaluate the successful finalists and the donation recipients will be announced on March 21st.

The projects will be evaluated based on four key criteria:

  1. The amount of community cheer and support
  2. The ability to meet application criteria
  3. The project’s alignment with Molson Coors values
  4. The positive social impact on the community and ability to demonstrate success

“Molson Coors has actively invested in Canadian communities for over 225 years, since our founder and noted philanthropist John Molson opened the brewery in 1786,” said Ferg Devins, Chief of Public Affairs for Molson Coors Canada. “We’ve received positive feedback on the Community Cheer program from coast to coast, from beer drinkers who are excited to see their favourite brands like Molson Canadian and Coors Light giving back to the community.”

Molson Coors employees in the Community

Caledon Re-Use Store

A team of Molson Coors volunteers in Ontario spent some time at the Caledon ReUse store. The ReUse store takes donations of all types and re-sells them to the general public through their store. They have been successful in diverting almost 1 million pounds away from Caledon landfills each year and contribute a significant amount of money annually to Caledon Community Services, a multi-service, community-impact organization that helps people help themselves by working creatively and responding to community needs like, among other things, homelessness, hunger, employment services, support for new Canadians and for seniors.

The Molson Coors team assisted the accepting of donations, sorting the goods and merchandising them in the store … just in time for the holiday rush! It was a great afternoon and a very worthwhile cause, thanks to all of the volunteers; Mel Salerno, Nadia Said, Angela Kacin, Janice Moore, Mark Thomas and Will Meijer.

Moncton Headstart

And to the East….another team of volunteers got behind a Christmas box program with Moncton Headstart (local foodbank).  With a $5,000 donation in hand to help kick off the campaign, the 30 Molson Coors employees raised another $700 and spent a day delivering boxes of food.

Winnipeg Harvest

And over to Winnipeg where a team of 10 Molson Coors employees spent an afternoon wrapping Christmas gifts for families & putting together food hampers for those in need with Winnipeg Harvest.

Lending a hand during the holidays

Door is Open 2011

It’s that time of year when we all hope we can somehow make an impact in the communities where we work and live. Whether it’s purchasing a toy for a holiday gift drive, a donation to your local food bank, or volunteering at a holiday fundraising event.  Just last week, our Molson Coors employees reminded me again how the holidays can bring out the best in people and how proud I am to work with people who care about their communities.

Molson Coors at Door is Open

Our Vancouver sales crew rolled up their sleeves to ensure over 350 servings of homemade chili, buns, fruit and treats made their way to the less fortunate who live on the streets of the downtown east side. “We are all proud to work for a company that cares about those whose journeys seem all uphill. Thanks for allowing us to do this every year” Lynda Perovich

Door is Open 2011

Thank you to:

Marina Guy, Mo Rumley, Michele Klassen, Daryn Medwid, Charl Van Rensburg, Mike Baxter, Denise Johnson, Dan Wainwright, Adam Smith, Lee-Wai Yu, Lynda Perovich
