Pro­duc­tiv­ity sav­ings were also rein­vested back into build­ing its brands to en­sure long-term growth.

“We be­lieve in the power of our lo­cal tal­ent and are com­mit­ted to con­tinue re­cruit­ing the best Malaysian tal­ent, and to train and de­velop them.

“Through this com­mit­ment, we will de­liver on Nes­tle’s pur­pose of en­hanc­ing qual­ity of life and con­tribut­ing to a health­ier fu­ture for all Malaysians,” added Hof­bauer.
