"As MAPA Imports builds sales and distribution of Del Prado all-natural nectars and fruit juices in California and the U.S., it is dedicated to supporting local charities," explained John Gallagher, grandson of Ricardo Chiari, one of the founders of Del Prado in 1958.
Within MAPA's annual budget is a vital Social Responsibility segment. "We believe that every business large or small has an obligation to contribute a portion of its profits to a charity of their choice," explained Gallagher. "More and more consumers have formed a partnership with Del Prado gourmet nectars and juices not only because of the outstanding quality, but also because they know they are directly helping a great charity."
In fact, MAPA Imports, LLC, is inspired by the good works of Newman's Own Foundation. Donations from sales of Del Prado nectars and juices imported to the U.S. by MAPA Imports, helped create and continues to support "The Children of Ayacucho" charity. Father Antonio uses the funds to build schools, dorms, and orphanages in Ayacucho, Peru, as documented in Oprah's Angel Network. MAPA Imports hopes to expand its philanthropy worldwide.
