Have you heard the news?

Great news, Kasambuhays! :) Last week, Nestlé Philippines reaffirmed its presence in South East Asia with a new investment.

Here's an excerpt of the official press release :) For more information, please visit the Nestlé Philippines website.


Artist’s impression of the Tanauan factory, PhilippinesKEY MARKET: Artist’s impression of new manufacturing facility in the Philippines.
Nestlé is reaffirming its commitment to South East Asia by opening a new CHF112 million (5 billion Philippine Pesos) manufacturing facility.
The new factory in the city of Tanauan, in Batangas province, produces Coffee-mate non-dairy creamer products to be distributed across the Philippines.
Nestlé also plans to produce Bear Brand powdered milk at the site in the future.
The company has created employment for nearly 150 people and aims to generate indirect jobs in the area.

‘Key market’

“The Philippines is a key market for Nestlé in the South East Asia region, the broader Asia region and worldwide,” said Nandu Nandkishore, Zone Head for Asia, Oceania, Africa and Middle East.
The new investment has cemented and reaffirmed our confidence in the country.”
Mr Nandkishore was joined by Gregory Domingo, Trade and Industry Secretary, and Ivo Sieber, Swiss Ambassador for the Philippines, at the opening event.
John Miller, Nestlé Philippines Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and David Findlay, Technical Director for Nestlé Philippines, also attended.

"The new investment has cemented and reaffirmed our confidence in the country.”

Nandu Nandkishore, Zone Head for Asia, Oceania, Africa and Middle East.

Continued commitment

Nestlé’s new factory in Tanauan adds to the company’s recent investments in the South East Asia region.
Earlier this year, Nestlé invested in its research and development centre in Singapore.
In 2011 the company invested CHF230 million in a new factory in Dong Nai province in Vietnam and CHF98 million in its existing factories in Thailand.
In the same year Nestlé announced another CHF100 million investment in its factory in Karawang, Indonesia.
It also announced an investment of CHF35 million in a new breakfast cereals factory in Malaysia.

Energy saving

The factory in Tanauan is equipped with a number of systems for rainwater collection, the recovery and reuse of industrial wastewater and light saving energy.
Waste material at the factory will be converted into fertiliser and used for coffee farming.
The company has supported coffee farming in the Philippines since the 1960s, providing crops and training to help farmers to improve their harvests.
This is part of an approach to business Nestlé calls ‘Creating Shared Value’, which aims to create value for the company’s shareholders at the same time as for those communities where it operates.

Investing in the Philippines

In recent years Nestlé has invested more than CHF360 million (16 billion Philippine Pesos) in the Philippines to expand existing factories and boost production capabilities.
“We have been committed to the Philippines for over 100 years,” said John Miller, Nestlé Philippines Chairman and CEO. “During this time we have made many investments. We continue to expand our existing operations as well as building exciting new facilities like the Tanauan factory.”

Everyday indulgences you can enjoy (:

Happy Fridays, Kasambuhays! The weekend is almost upon us--don't you just love the simple joys in life? (:

Sometimes, the smallest and simplest things in life are the ones that bring us joy. So the next time you feel like cheering up, don't forget that life has so much to offer, and often times, they're for free! Just take a good look at this list and take your pick.
  • Hearing from an old friend via Facebook or email: It's time to rekindle old friendships.
  • Looking at a drawing your little one made of your family: Frame it and then display it at home.
  • Waking up to the chirping of birds on a Saturday morning: This is a rare treat for urban dwellers. What a great way to jump-start the weekend!
  • Reminiscing happy memories with your family: Share many funny stories for lots of laughs.
  • Relaxing with a cup of coffee: Close your eyes and savor the NESCAFÉ aroma while you're at it.
  • Getting to taste a delicious new dish: Perhaps your kind neighbor offered you something she whipped up – now your new favorite!
  • Playing outside with the kids: There's nothing like engaging in games to make yourself feel young and carefree.
  • Savoring your dessert: Relish every bite of your favorite dessert!
  • Listening to your favorite song: Sing along (or at least hum) and even dance to the tune.

Sunday slowdown: Project Reconnect!

Happy Sunday, Kasambuhays! Sundays are a good day to slowdown and take a moment to reflect; a refreshing pace than the usual weekday routine.

We have grown accustomed to a fast-paced lifestyle. Oftentimes, we get so caught up with our to-do-lists and deadlines that we forget to leave any room for the people we truly care for, such as your old friends, childhood buddies included. When did you last see them? Have you contacted them recently?

Remember, people are priceless and true friends are real treasures. So why not make it a goal today (right this minute!) to re-connect with these people? If you're at a loss as to where to begin, here are some simple tips that you can do. Let Project Reconnect begin!

Go Virtual!
Almost everything is now on the Internet. Nowadays, the best way to track down old familiar faces is to use the different social sites available on the web. Facebook is a great starting point, as well as other classmate-related websites.

Old-school phone book
Don't underestimate the usefulness of old phone directories! The odds that your friend's family still lives in the same area are pretty big. Work up the courage to call and ask about your friend. They may have all the necessary information, specifically his/her mobile number.

Chat and catch up!
Once you've found these friends, follow through with a phone call or a text message. Just make sure to keep your messages light! After all, you don't want them to feel uncomfortable. After a series of correspondence, suggest you meet up for a night or an afternoon of catching up and reminiscing!

Communicate, communicate!
Like other relationships, friendships are best nurtured with a whole lot of communication. Keep your doors open for your friends. Don't let your killer schedule rob you of the joy of spending time with these amazing people--most especially those that have taken up a huge space in your heart!
