KUCHING: Maggi will pay special tribute to healthcare and frontline heroes throughout Sarawak and Sabah to start off the Gawai Dayak celebration.

It said on Saturday (May 1) that it will be donating 20,000 Maggi Hot Cups via the Malaysian Red Crescent this month.

Maggi/Nestle business executive officer Geetha Balakrishna said it has always been a privilege to hold a special place in the Sarawakian kitchen whether it’s for everyday cooking or special dishes prepared during festive seasons.

“Gawai Dayak is celebrated over a spread of home-cooked local delicacies and favourites. At the core of the harvest festival lies the story of patience, diligence and hard work.

“While the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic has changed the dynamics of how we live and celebrate these special occasions with our loved ones, Maggi hopes to continue to support and be an everyday ally to the people of Sarawak during these challenging times,” Geeta said.

“We also hope to bring a little cheer to everyone with the return of our annual ‘Jom Masak & Menang Bersama’ contest,” she said.

On another note, as part of Maggi’s efforts to reduce waste and encourage recycling in the country, it has created the Maggi Hot Cup recycling bin.

“These recycling bins will be placed at selected retail outlets and at Maggi roadshows so that consumers can easily recycle their used Maggi Hot Cup containers.

“Upon recycling one clean Maggi® Hot Cup container at these bins, consumer will each receive one free Maggi Hot Cup in return,” it said.
