A sweet commitment
In collaboration with the artist Hans Erni and the Swiss Cancer League, Wernli has already created four unique biscuit tins with selected biscuit specialities. A donation is made to the Swiss Cancer League with each purchase of the Special Edition Hans Erni tin. Wernli is thus actively committed to the fight against cancer. "We would like to give the people affected and their families a zest for life and some courage in this difficult time", says Werner Hug, President of the Board of Directors of HUG AG, explaining the motivation for his company's commitment.
Hans Erni - a committed humanitarian
Hans Erni (21 February 1909 to 21 March 2015) was a Swiss painter, graphic designer and sculptor. He became known throughout the country with his mural "Switzerland, Vacation Land of the People" for the Swiss national exhibition in 1939. "Artists must publicise their lifelong concerns". This personal conviction of Hans Erni did not only apply for his artistic work. It equally applied to his commitment to peace, justice and humanity.
The campaign aims to bring some warmth and hope to afflicted people. And the message from the artist Hans Erni, to champion human dignity in every life situation, is becoming increasingly widespread.
