Fonterra Brands Malaysia celebrates World Milk Day and Ramadan

In conjunction with World Milk Day and the holy month of Ramadan, Fonterra Brands Malaysia celebrates both occasions by sharing the goodness of dairy with communities in need. The dairy nutrition company from New Zealand distributed 500 meals of bubur lambuk enriched with Fernleaf UHT milk and Iftar packs loaded with dairy products at local mosque Surau As Sahabah, Kota Damansara.

The company also donated 60 kilograms of Fernleaf and Anlene milk powder to two charity shelters for children and the disabled, the Agathians Shelter and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Yatim Dan OKU Mesra. It also gave out over 1,000 Fernleaf UHT milk packs at LRT stations in Kuala Lumpur.

Megawati Suzari, Director of New Product Development, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, Fonterra Brands Malaysia, says the company is privileged to be able to celebrate World Milk Day and Ramadan with several activities that are focused on supporting the health and wellness of Malaysians.

“We believe in enriching the lives of the people and communities where we operate, that’s why we wanted to celebrate Ramadan and World Milk Day by bringing dairy to people who may not have it as part of their daily diets. We are especially honoured to have so many families join us at the surau today to enjoy the bubur lambuk and Iftar packs that our team has prepared. As a leading dairy nutrition provider in Malaysia, we encourage everyone to consume more dairy because a balanced and wholesome diet is important in sustaining energy levels and maintaining good health, especially during the month of Ramadan. Milk contains many essential nutrients such as protein, calcium, potassium, B vitamins, that can help sustain energy levels and replenish nutrients lost during long hours of fasting,” says Megawati.

Haji Abdul Razak Bin Mohd Isa, Chairman of the Surau As Sahabah committee, says, “It is heartwarming to see so many families and children come together and enjoy a nutritious meal after fasting. We are grateful to have Fonterra with us today, distributing bubur lambuk and Iftar packs and providing them with the right nourishment to fuel their bodies.”

World Milk Day is an initiative by the Food and Agricultural Organization, a United Nations body. It is celebrated worldwide and recognises the importance of milk and dairy products as a source of nutrition for millions around the world.

All of Fonterra Brands Malaysia products are Halal certified by JAKIM.
