As part of its 110th anniversary, Nestlé Philippines will distribute P110 million worth of its products to families across the country.
According to the company, the initiative will serve as support to Filipino families, who are struggling during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The program started officially early this year and so far, Nestlé has provided food packages to families in the cities of Tanauan and Lipa in Batangas and Batangas province; Calamba, Cabuyao, and Sta. Rosa in Laguna province; Caloocan, Pasig, Manila, and San Juan in Metro Manila; and Tarlac City in Tarlac province.
To further provide support for the vulnerable, Nestlé said they aim to accelerate various advocacy programs that will focus on uplifting the lives of Filipinos – the farmers, children, and poverty-stricken families.
“We thank all the Filipino families who are according us the privilege of being their Kasambuhay in everyday life, our employees both past and present who have driven our growth and continue to do so, our public and private sector partners who are making it possible for us to serve people and the environment, and other stakeholders who motivate us to think harder and lead better,” Nestlé Philippines Chairman and CEO Kais Marzouki said in a statement.
Marzouki emphasized that this is just the start of their campaign to prop up the lives of Filipinos.
“Our efforts do not end here. As we move forward, we are committed to intensifying our share of the work in pursuing progress for the country, nourishing Filipinos, enhancing the quality of their lives, and achieving zero waste as well as net zero carbon emissions. At Nestlé Philippines, we are determined to enhance our role as your Kasambuhay for Good.”
