Being a Good Samaritan is not just about giving, but rejoice the giving. Altruism is beyond any mandate of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We believe that no business can ever be successful if the society around them fails. So our commitment towards societal welfare is an integral part of being a responsible social being, be it corporate or otherwise. At HK Group, CSR is not a particular program but an everyday routine. For Hari Krishna Exports, giving to the community and the less fortunate is a legacy. Even the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are already textured into HK’s value system. So any practices have been initiated, events are undertaken, and policies have been drafted at HK, all aimed at the well-being of society.
