الأنباط -In ongoing efforts to tackle current societal needs, Nestlé has donated 270,000 Food and Beverage servings to the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO), consisting of milk, culinary products, coffee, and cereals provided for inclusion in JHCO food parcels for families in need; and provided 90,000 liters of water, impacting more than 2,100 families in the Kingdom. The company also supported the Jordan Ministry of Health fund that helps hospitals provide ventilators to Intensive Care Units, as well as medical equipment and supplies to healthcare professionals. 

"Our priorities focus on three main objectives: 1. safeguarding the safety and wellbeing of our employees, our collaborators, business partners and the communities we are a part of; 2. ensuring continued production and delivery of much-needed food and beverage products to help meet the nutritional needs of individuals and families; and 3. stepping up relief efforts to local communities and healthcare professionals,” said Rayan Kesrouani, Nestlé General Business Manager in Jordan. 

The local efforts are part of Nestlé mobilizations in the Middle East and North Africa supporting more than 30 entities in 17 countries.
 
In addition, the company’s various divisions are contributing in their different expertise. Nestlé Professional for example continues to offer pragmatic support to its business partners in the hospitality industry, as they reopen to welcome back their customers. This is being done through its "Always open for You" initiative which benefited more nearly 800 foodservice outlets in Jordan, with offerings including nearly 200,000 NESCAFÉ cups, payment term extensions, coffee machine rental fees suspensions, and provision of free products, trainings, marketing and other services. 

"We care deeply for people and for the communities in which we operate, and always strive to remain true to our purpose of Enhancing Quality of Life and Contributing to a Healthier Future,” concluded Kesrouani. "Food and beverages help keep people healthy and enhance their quality of life, and we want to meet our responsibility to provide good nutrition, especially for the most vulnerable in society.”
