To Press Releases listTasmania,Jan 9, 2013

With more than 100 properties destroyed in bushfires in Tasmania, Nestlé has moved to support Foodbank in providing relief to the scores of families affected by the fires.

The Nestlé donation includes UNCLE TOBYS breakfast cereals and snacks, MAGGI noodles, Country Cup assorted soups, Carnation Evaporated Milk, Sunshine Milk, NESCAFÉ coffee products, MILO, and assorted snacks.

David Hix, Nestlé Australia Supply Chain Director, said the donations will be delivered this week.

“Foodbank will have our donation by Friday to enable them to get relief to victims on the ground as soon as possible,” said David.

Foodbank is very grateful for our donation, which will be shipped overnight from Victoria to their Hobart warehouse, where approximately 100 volunteers are packing food parcels for immediate distribution.

“Thanks to everyone for their quick turnaround to make this donation possible,” said David. “As a longstanding partner of Nestlé Australia, we are pleased to be able to support Foodbank Australia at this time.”

Foodbank is committed to an Australia without hunger. For more information visit the Foodbank website.
