Port of Spain, Trinidad. April 28th, 2021:
Angostura® has provided assistance to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) through the purchase of relief items for its citizens whose lives have been turned upside down by the ongoing eruptions of the La Soufrière volcano.
On Tuesday, Angostura® in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade and Industry donated much- needed supplies which were loaded onto the Galleons Passage which is expected to leave today to head to SVG.
Angostura® donated 500 full-size mattresses, 100 shovels, 300 pairs of steel tip boots, 200 mops, 100 scrubbing brooms, 200 buckets, 150 water hoses and 2,300 reflective vests to assist in relief and cleaning efforts.
Angostura’s CEO (Ag.) Ian Forbes says, “Angostura is proud to be part of this effort to assist St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The disaster in SVG has seen thousands of people being evacuated from their homes and businesses and Angostura® understands the island’s urgent need for humanitarian assistance. Our hearts go out to the families who have been displaced by the volcanic eruptions and the ash fall. We are a resilient region and together we will help SVG overcome this natural disaster.”
In addition to providing help for the citizens of SVG, Angostura® will also be donating supplies for the animals on the island and this will be done through the Trinidad and Tobago Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (TTSPCA).
Angostura® aromatic bitters is proud to have held a Royal Warrant of Appointment from HM Queen Elizabeth II since 1955. In 2012, the 60th year of her Majesty’s reign, we broke with nearly 200 years of tradition by re-designing the Angostura ® aromatic bitters. This was with the aim to raise funds for the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, the official charity of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, which makes awards to craftsmen and women to help them further their careers. Only 24,000 bottles were available world-wide.
Angostura Holdings Limited has a policy framework which is outlined in its Employee handbook and a Whistleblower policy in place. Under the Whistleblower process, employees may anonymously report matters including issues of sexual harassment without fear of retaliation. It also guides the Company to protect the confidentiality of harassment allegations as an investigation pursues.
A Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for later this week and this matter is expected to engage the Board’s attention.
Angostura Holdings Limited policy on the issue is clear. Sexual harassment is not condoned or tolerated in the workplace and employees are made aware of their rights, roles and responsibilities if they feel they have been a victim of harassment. We treat all accusations of sexual harassment allegations very seriously regardless of whom they are directed toward.
In keeping with Angostura Holdings Limited’s policy and as a matter of responsible corporate behaviour, as the investigation proceeds and for the protection of the complainant, records of the complaint of harassment will not be shared in the public domain.
