Hunt Deltel’s New Salt Yard begun operations on 20th April 2017.
Needless to say, the warehouse provides all-round higher standard of hygiene, security and stock control. With the elimination of exposure to the elements, salt loss and leaching will be cut to an absolute minimum – good news for our customers as well as for the generations to come who may well have other plans for the land currently occupied by our salt yard.
Seychelles is participating in the 57th International Art Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia- for the second consecutive year. Hunt, Deltel & Co. Ltd. proudly sponsored Arterial Network Seychelles during the National Expo 2016 for the launch of The Giant Tortoise Parade.
This event introduced the concept of the giant tortoise sculpture to the public of Seychelles in the form of a youth art competition.
The excitement was palpable at Hunt Deltel’s Trinity House Headquarters as preparations kicked in full swing over the month of July 2016; organized stacks of files could be seen growing taller across the counter tops as 17 years’ worth of hard work was packed up into dozens of re-usable DHL bags and archive boxes. On the eve of our last day at Trinity House the company held a commemorative get-together to which all departments were invited.
I started my internship at Hunt Deltel on 1st June, 2015. I still smile when I think of the warm welcome I had on that first day. I was introduced to everyone in the office and they were all very friendly which put me at ease instantly and made me forget I was a bundle of nerves!
Coming from a small secluded island in the middle of a vast blue ocean, many of us islanders often feel as though our dreams and talents are somewhat out of reach. It was Felicity Passon’s childhood dream to swim and break boundaries in the water. Her mother often reminds her of the start of her love for water which was at the grand old age of one month, and which, with each passing year, grew and turned into her own version of her reality. For 17 years, the young woman’s love for the sport has never wavered.
In June, for the occasion of the National Day celebrations, the company partnered with Arterial Network Seychelles for the launch of The Giant Tortoise Parade public art project. The launch took the form of an art competition which was open to all children curious enough to venture into the Hunt Deltel tent to create an original Giant Tortoise art piece.
In April, we sponsored our first Mass Clean-Up, which took place on Beau Vallon Beach and was jointly organized and funded by ourselves and SYAH (SIDS Youth AIMS Hub).
The aim of the event was to raise awareness amongst school children about the detrimental effects of littering our beaches on endangered species such as sea turtles. Sustainability for Seychelles also participated by organizing a painting station for anti-littering signage on the site of the weekly ‘bazar labrin’.
DHL GARD (Get Airports Ready for Disaster) is an initiative of the Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world’s leading mail logistics group supported and funded by the UNDP and the German government.
