A Delightful Deepavali with Nestlé

To Press Releases listPetaling Jaya,Oct 26, 2016

The world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company recently held a Deepavali celebration for children from the Siddharthan Care Centre at Nestlé Malaysia’s headquarters.

Organised by Nestlé’s ‘Reaching Out to Community and Kids’ (ROCKS) Employee Volunteer Programme, the children enjoyed a fun afternoon creating a vibrant Deepavali banner with their handprints, together with Nestlé employee volunteers, fondly known as ‘ROCKers’. There were big smiles and much laughter as the children and ROCKers exchanged ideas that resulted in a unique and colourful creation befitting the occasion.

Mr. Alois Hofbauer, Managing Director of Nestlé Malaysia, was present at the gathering, spending time to talk to the children as well as to put the finishing touches to a specially designed Kolam. In addition, he presented a washing machine to the Siddharthan Care Centre, a gift that the home caretakers had expressed a need for.

Nestlé also brought Deepavali cheer to its employees in Surian Tower, as various races, religions and nationalities came together to enjoy a delectable festive buffet spread including Moghul cashew nut & raisins pulao, vegetable dalcha, chicken chilli varuval and aloo ghobi. To encourage employees to learn more about the festival, the Company organised a ‘Best Decorated Floor’ competition, which saw each department brightening their respective floors with an array of colours and ornaments in true Deepavali spirit.
