In the backdrop of the Rio Olympics 2016, Nestlé employees also came together to compete in the Nestlé Supermeet 2016 ending last month.
The event brings together employees from Malaysia and Singapore once every four years to compete in a range of 22 sports activities, such as badminton, football, netball, sepak takraw, tennis and athletics.
Over a thousand Nestlé athletes from 10 contingents came together on the grounds of University of Malaya to vie for the Champion trophy for three days of intense competition.
The Nestlé Malaysia head office and sales (HOU) contingent won top honours this year, led by Mohd Ridzuan, who said: “Thank you to my team for the strong teamwork and great effort. We over-delivered and exceeded our expectations. Thank you also to our coaches, team members and sponsors.”

Alois Hofbauer, region head, Nestlé Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, said he was pleased to see all athletes perform their best, showcasing excellent teamwork.
“It has been a truly enjoyable experience to have united our Nestlé family from across Malaysia and Singapore through this initiative. I urge all our employees to continue to lead fitter, healthier lifestyles, not just for themselves, but for their loved ones as well.”
One of the highlights of the event was the Nestlé OMEGA PLUS Fun Walk, which saw almost 500 employees and their families walk in solidarity towards greater heart health.
Jamie Lim of Nestlé Singapore team added: “This is my first Supermeet, together with most of my team members. We are all very excited to be here and we had a lot of fun. We have also succeeded in forming new friendships and strengthening bonds during this event!”
