DSV & Glanbia Collaborate to Provide to Bahamas Hurricane Relief

When Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas in September, much of the world sprung into action, sending food, water, and other necessary supplies to help the displaced. DSV’s Sports and Nutrition team, along with Glanbia, a global nutrition customer, stepped up to send Glanbia’s supplements to the people of the Bahamas.

DSV & Glanbia Collaborate to Provide to Bahamas Hurricane Relief

While the goods were donated by Glanbia, DSV arranged and donated ocean transportation via MSC, allowing both companies to come together to help in their areas of expertise.

Our team, based in Chicago, Illinois, worked with an agent located in Freeport, Bahamas, to make the transport as quick and seamless as possible. 

In the hardest hit areas, homes were completely demolished, displacing the residents and leaving them with no access to food or hydration. Glanbia’s protein crisp bars and Isopure Anytime drinks allowed residents a simple way to access nutrition. The company donated 3 40-foot containers’ worth of their products, totaling approximately $100,000 in value.

From Dorma Salinas, Glanbia’s International Supply Chain Manager:

This donation is a solid example of the collaborative partnership between Glanbia and DSV that clearly shows the power of two great companies working together to serve a broader cause for people in need.

If you would like to donate to the Bahamas Hurricane Dorian relief as they continue to rebuild 2 months after the storm, please contact your local Red Cross.
