Corporate Social Responsibility

HADCO Group Foundation
HADCO Group Foundation - Established in memory of Maria Hadad
Maria Hadad was the sister of our Group co-CEOs, John, Robert, and Joseph. Her kindness and spontaneous generosity toward those around her inspired the establishment of HADCO Group Foundation in 2017 in her memory. The main goal of the Foundation is to help employees who have suffered the consequences of a natural disaster, chronic disease, or major illness. However, the work of the Foundation does not stop there as it provides poverty and deprivation relief and assistance to communities in dire need. Contributions to the foundation are made by employees. It is through our combined resources and the generosity and compassion we have for each other that we continue to thrive.
The well-being of each member of our HADCO Group family is reflected in the prosperity of our Organisation. This is the goal we achieve and the principles we uphold through HADCO Group Foundation.
Friends in The Fight
Since 2005, General Mills/Yoplait has been donating funds in collaboration with Scotiabank for their annual 5K Walk Against Breast Cancer. HADCO Limited, the sole distributor of Yoplait in Trinidad & Tobago, has joined the fight against cancer by donating to various cancer foundations and building awareness around the cause.
HADCO Group has always promoted healthy living and we constantly strive to integrate our products with these values. We would like to see more persons join us in our drive to lead longer, healthier lives!
HADCO Phase II Pan Groove
In December 2015, HADCO Group joined forces with Phase II Pan Groove, forming a partnership which allowed the steel orchestra to retain its name and identity. Over the years, this partnership evolved and in 2018 HADCO Group’s relationship with Phase II Pan Groove was further strengthened when the steel orchestra adopted the name HADCO Phase II Pan Groove.
With a deep sense of national pride, coupled with passion, HADCO Group is committed to not just financially supporting the steel orchestra but to promote growth, development and good governance, while continuing to honour the musical genius and legacy of Dr. Len “Boogsie” Sharpe (DHonMusic). The goal is to ensure that HADCO Phase II Pan Groove continues to maintain its irrefutable foothold as one of the focal players in the global steelpan industry.
