Nestlé has thanked frontline healthcare workers for not taking a break with a specially designed KitKat bar.
More than 250,000 of the ‘thank you’ KitKat bars have been distributed to hospital staff in recognition of their lifesaving work during the COVID-19 crisis.
Nestlé’s Confectionery General Manager Chris O’Donnell said it was the company’s way of paying tribute to their contribution and personal sacrifices during the global pandemic.
“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,” he 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 has also donated more than $2 million in food products to Foodbank Australia to support those in the community facing food insecurity and at-risk remote Indigenous communities.
