Greater Omaha Packing Company Donates Beef, Money to Ukraine Relief Efforts
To support the ongoing Ukraine conflict, Greater Omaha Packing Co., a supplier of premium beef, has donated 27,600 pounds of ground beef to Ukraine. Additionally, the company gave $105,000 in monetary donations to Ukrainian relief efforts.
Greater Omaha Packing estimates its beef donation to the Ukrainian people can provide more than 100,000 meals for Ukrainian soldiers and people in need.
“At Greater Omaha Packing, we are blessed to live in a country where our freedoms and individuality are protected in democracy. Ukrainians have been fighting to save their country’s journey to be free, and we are honored to support them.”
Greater Omaha Packing CEO Henry Davis
The beef is being delivered in two shipments, with the first having arrived in Ukraine via air freight in the early morning of April 27, 2022. The second shipment is being delivered via cargo ship and is set to arrive in Germany on May 13, 2022, where Premium Foods Promotion, a Ukrainian company, will deliver the ground beef directly to Ukraine. Because of the urgency of the need on the front lines, Greater Omaha Packing chose to deliver the beef in two shipments, one by air freight and one by cargo ship, to get ground beef to Ukraine as quickly as possible.
“At Greater Omaha Packing, our mission is simple: to produce the finest beef products, honor our commitments, respect our employees, and be good stewards,” Davis said. “It is a natural outpouring of those goals that we support Ukrainians in their time of need.”
