OMV Serbia traditionally celebrates the International Coffee Day on October 1. With this drink, we share life moments every day, and in the changed circumstances that affect all of us, this year we share solidarity and health care together with consumers. That is why the entire income made from the sale of the popular VIVA coffee at OMV filling stations in Serbia during this year’s Coffee Day will be donated. The recipients of the donation will be NURDOR and the SOS Children's Villages Serbia Foundation.
"We are confident that we can jointly overcome challenges we are faced with. Our customers have demonstrated to us numerous times that responsible way of doing business is important to them besides premium quality of our products and seamless service, and they are encouraging us to continue in giving support. We are happy that International Coffee Day is just an opportunity to jointly with our customers contribute to work of noble organizations on the welfare of children and youth to who this donation is intended", says Retail Manager Nikola Bozalo.
