San Carlo Crisps lovers win €500 in cash

The San Carlo Says Facebook Competition, organised by food & beverage importers and distributors AppleCore Foods Ltd, came to an end as Jacob Cachia and Hilton Malta Executive Chef Joseph Vella both received the news that they are the lucky winners of €500 in cash each.

But the story doesn’t end there! Both Chef Joseph Vella and Jacob Cachia donated their winnings to Ursuline Sisters Crèche in Sliema.

“That was the aim of the photo all along. We wanted to enter the San Carlo Says competition as a fun way to come together as a team for a good cause. Thank you AppleCore Foods for giving us the opportunity, other companies should follow suit!”, said Joseph Vella in a brief comment.

The sentiment was echoed by Jacob Cachia who garnered the highest number of votes in the competition. “Thanks to San Carlo, someone in need will be benefitting from necessary care, and I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the organisers for this fun incentive”, added Jacob Cachia. Jacob also received a personalised chef’s jacket from Chef Joseph Vella with Chef Jacob embroidered on it.

Chris Zammit Lupi, Brand Manager at AppleCore Foods added, “What a fun competition! We received so many photos of people enjoying their favourite crisps. San Carlo has quickly become a brand we enjoy in our relaxing moments with family and friends, and the Facebook competition was a true reflection of that”.
