The Hellmann’s® brand was founded on the principle of using real, simple ingredientslike eggs, oil and vinegar. It’s why we’re on a mission to use 100% free run eggs in all of our products by 2020 and why we created the Hellmann’s® Real Food Movement™.
Millions of Canadians are passionate about real food and look for ways to share it with their families and friends. In 2009, we started the Hellmann’s® Real Food Movement to help Canadians connect with and understand the delicious benefits of real food. We’ve since developed toolkits, guides and interactive recipes to help families realize how easy it can be to bring more real food to their tables. And we’ll continue to build on our commitment to real food in the future.
IN OUR COMMUNITY
The Hellmann’s® Real Food Movement celebrates every aspect of real food:where it comes from, how it grows and how you can enjoy it. From day one, this initiative set out to create change we can all be a part of.
We established the Hellmann’s® Real Food Grant Program to celebrate and support the people who are making strides for real food. Between 2010 and 2012, we gave over $320,000 to individuals, communities and organizationscommitted to connecting Canadians with real food.
Over the years, the Real Food Grant program has shown the importance of involving kids in food education and preparation. When kids are given the opportunity to engage with real food in a learning environment, as with many of the school programs we’ve supported, they retain those lessons and bring good eating habits home to their families.
Helping children embrace food through education is the next step in our Real Food Movement journey and we’re excited to continue our efforts to help Canadian children eat more real food.
