Mr. Wayne England, Chairman and CEO, Nestlé Indochina, said, “The event today is so enormous and important for Nestlé in Thailand as we show our commitment to improve and take care of nutrition and health to ensure that Thai consumers live healthier lives.  Nestlé has offered quality products with a focus on nutritional value and a taste that is right for consumers for the last 12 decades.  

On average, in every minute, Thai consumers use Nestlé products more than 40,000 times a day and around 24 million cups of NESCAFÉ are consumed daily in Thailand.  Today, Nestlé offers more than 50 brands, including Bear Brand, NESCAFÉ and Milo.  We also contribute to local communities and averagely reach more than 50,000 people a day.  In the 120 years we have been side by side with Thai society, Nestlé products have been used by consumers more than 63 million times and we believe that Nestlé will keep on evolving side by side with Thai society.”

‘Nestlé’ celebrates 120 years in ThailandKhun Nophadol Siwabutr, Corporate Affairs Director, Nestlé (Thai) Ltd., said, “Today we officially rolled out the “Live Healthy, Live for More...Nestlé 120 Years” Mobile Expo.  We aim to promote health and wellness for nationwide communities through 13 activity zones.  We want Thai people to seriously take care of their health.  We believe that everybody has an important role to look after nutrition for themselves and their families because nutrition builds people and people build their careers.  We need to build a state of good nutrition for people from the womb until they become the elderly.”

“Nestlé launched the programme in 2009.  Then it was known as ‘Nestlé Corporate Road Show’.  It is a highlight of our ‘Creating Shared Value (CSV),’ which has been ongoing over the years and has been evolving to better suit consumer interest. This time we are going to 120 communities across the country to reach 350,000 Thai consumers to share with them knowledge on nutrition and health, which are life’s foundations,” added Khun Nophadol.

‘Nestlé’ celebrates 120 years in ThailandThe event was joined by people in show business who take care of their health and that of their families.  Among them were ‘Pope’ Thanawat, ‘Tangmo’ Pongpisut, Pue-on together with his father Piyapong, ‘Pui’ Pimonwan and ‘Ning’ Saraichatt. All mingled with consumers in activities designed to keep them healthy.

‘Pope’ Thanawat Wattanaputi, the soft-spoken actor, said, “I’m asking all Thais, whether you are kids, adults or the elderly, to look after your health from today and to work out more.  Also eat vegetables, fruits regularly.  It helps improve your health. I eat lots of vegetables to keep my bowel system healthy.  Once the inside is good, it has a positive impact on the outside.  Eating fruits and other nutritional foods also helps your health.”

‘Pui’ Pimonwan Hoonthongkam, emcee mom, said “I work hard nearly every day.  So I have to take care of myself by eating good.  I eat only nutritional foods or foods that help my bowel movement.  Some people say they don’t have time to take care of themselves.  Try to manage your time.  Start taking care of yourself just a little bit a day from now and you will stay healthy for yourself and your family.”

‘Nestlé’ celebrates 120 years in Thailand‘Ning’ Saraichatt Jirapaet, another emcee mom, said, “I started to seriously look after myself when I had my daughter because I want to stay with her and my family for a long time.  So I have to stay healthy.  I started my exercise routine from aerobic dance. I like cardio in particular.  I eat health food.  I think that with good health, you can do your job well and be happy at the same time.”

“We would like to thank all of you for your help and support, and the consumers for trusting us for 120 years.  We will keep building our good relationships side by side with Thais well into the future.  We will keep developing quality products that are good for their health.  

We will keep training our people to understand and respond to consumer needs with our expertise and quality products because we at Nestlé believe that well-being comes from two things, one is developing products that meet Thai people’s nutritional needs and the other is sharing knowledge on proper nutrition and health care in line with our corporate concept of Nestlé, Live Healthy, Live for More,” Mr. England said.

The “Live Healthy, Live for More… Nestlé 120 Years” Mobile Expo started reaching in late March 120 communities in the provinces of Thailand and will go on the whole year. For more information and schedule, visit www.GoodFoodGoodLife.in.th
