Mr. Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad, said, “At Nestle Malaysia, we have been supporting the effort of front liners throughout the pandemic. We want again to acknowledge and show appreciation on the tireless efforts from healthcare front liners, who continue to play a critical role in the fight against the current Covid-19 wave. Their dedication is humbling and this is a small way to showcase our support and encouraging frontliners to keep up their spirits.”

Mr. Frédéric Porchet, Business Executive Officer for Confectionery Business Unit, Nestlé Malaysia commented, “While we know this is a critical time, we also understand the value of taking a break, especially when you are working long hours under a great deal of pressure. We hope that this small gesture from KITKAT will bring some joy to our frontliners and help them take a short break for themselves, as they continue to do their utmost to contain the spread of this pandemic.”
