Grupo Premium Foundation is the latest initiative of the Malaga hotel group. Since its beginnings, Grupo Premium has participated in numerous projects to promote social inclusion in Malaga and has prepared its facilities to host any altruistic act. Now, with the inauguration of its foundation, the group will begin extensive hospitality training, continue to participate in different social activities, and further support local artists.

Social Inclusion of the New Grupo Premium Foundation

Since it was created more than ten years ago, Grupo Premium has fostered social inclusion and collaborated with different non-profit associations. Among these activities is the Incorpora program, an initiative of social inclusion which, together with La Caixa Foundation, seeks to provide training and labour insertion in the hospitality sector for people at risk of exclusion. In the same way, the Arrabal Association works for the full social and labour integration of vulnerable people, and thanks to the help of Grupo Premium, it gave training courses in gastronomy and cuisine and raised funds for training purposes. In addition, Grupo Premium has collaborated in fundraising for associations such as Cudeca, Cruz Roja, and the Feder Foundation. It also performs altruistic tasks in soup kitchens by providing menus and raw materials. Finally, the group collaborates closely with local artists by organising concerts, meetings, workshops, and exhibitions, helping to strengthen the cultural fabric of the city and its prestige.

Taking as a reference this extensive experience of social inclusion and commitment in the hospitality sector, the directors of the Premium Group, Elisardo Sánchez Burgos, José Manuel Montalvo Senra, and Juan Francisco García Postigo, have decided to advance in their social tasks and create the Grupo Premium Foundation.

This new foundation will work in several ways: training and support for culture, science, and technology; sustainability and the environment; and support for entrepreneurship and leadership. Among its first projects, the creation of the Talent Factory stands out as a way to promote hospitality training following the philosophy and values of Grupo Premium. In the same way, the Grupo Premium Foundation also intends to establish a close collaboration with several NGOs with initiatives such as supporting children through collecting school materials or preparing solidarity menus on designated dates. Another line of work will include backing culture throughinitiatives and events supporting local artists and musicians to boost their professional careers.
