KitKat thanks NZ frontliners with customised bars
Confectionery giant Nestlé’s KitKat has donated 25,000 ‘thank you’ chocolate wafers to Kiwi healthcare workers in New Zealand as they combat the Coronavirus pandemic.
Nestlé New Zealand country manager, Christian Abboud said the company wanted to show its gratitude to the frontliners who are risking their lives during the crisis.
“Our KitKat brand has long called for people to ‘have a break’ – but we know that for many, that’s not possible during this time. To all those working in our healthcare system, the world is forever grateful to you for not having a break right now,” Abboud said.
“We have been moved by the commitment and hard work of our frontline healthcare workers during such challenging conditions. The strength and resilience they continue to show is humbling. We wanted to, even in a small way, say thank you and to show our support and appreciation.”
Nestlé also has donated $500,000 in food products to The Salvation Army to help the vulnerable consumers during the COVID-19 outbreak.
