PETALING JAYA: It is business as usual for Nestlé (Malaysia) Bhd for now, especially for its exports sales, amid China's Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak.
Chief executive officer Juan Aranols said while the outbreak is still in “its very early days”, Nestle Malaysia would continue monitoring the situation.
The company exports to 20 countries, as far as the US, Canada, Europe and the UK.
“It is very early days and at this point, it is business as usual. Obviously, we are monitoring the situation and hope it will end sooner than later.
“However, it is still in early stage to see any significant impact yet,” Aranols told the New Straits Times after the launch of Nestlé Salary for Life contest here today.
Meanwhile, Nestlé Malaysia today launched its biggest nationwide contest to date, giving Malaysians the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and earn a “salary for life” through the Peraduan Nestlé Gaji Seumur Hidup (Nestlé Salary for Life contest) – just by purchasing RM15 worth of Nestlé products in a single receipt.
The contest offers two lucky grand prize winners the chance to win a ‘Salary for Life’ of RM3,000 every month, and 10 consolation prize winners the chance to take home a ‘Salary for a Year’ of RM3,000 every month.
There will also be cash prizes of RM500 given out to 50 winners every week throughout the contest’s 11-week duration.
This brings the total cash prizes for Peraduan Nestlé Gaji Seumur Hidup to over RM4 million, benefitting over 560 Malaysians.
The contest runs from February 14 to April 30.
“This is our way of saying thanks for the heartfelt support Malaysia has given to Nestlé and the Nestlé brands for over 100 years, by giving Malaysians the chance of a lifetime to fulfil their dreams,” said Aranols.
Simply by purchasing a minimum of RM15 worth of participating Nestlé products in a single receipt and by answering a simple question, consumers will be aligible to submit one entry via post or Whatsapp.
