FEDERAL Oats Mills Sdn Bhd has once again stepped in as a sponsor for Ipoh Starwalk.
The company is contributing RM15,000 cash and 30,000 40g sachets of Captain Oats instant oatmeal worth RM15,000 as a silver sponsor for this year’s walk on May 22.
Its executive director Michael Chew said the main objective of the sponsorship was to encourage and promote a healthier living among the people.
“Starwalk is a healthy event and Captain Oats will contribute towards a healthy diet. Since the company was established 51 years ago, it has been constantly researching on new ways to improve output and deliver better quality products to consumers.
“In the last three years, we have spent RM30mil to upgrade the milling equipment to increase quality and productivity through an automated line,” Chew said after handing over the sponsorship to The Star’s advertisement representative Mohammad Shohib Ahmad Ibrahim at the Federal Oats office in the Mak Mandin Industrial Estate in Butterworth on Tuesday.
Also present were the company’s general manager Rosalynn Tan Kim Choo and sales & export manager Steven Tan.
This is the second consecutive year the company has stepped in as a sponsor for Ipoh Starwalk. It has also been a sponsor for the Penang Starwalk for four years.
Ipoh Starwalk 2016 will be flagged off at the Perak Turf Club in Jalan Raja DiHilir at 7am on May 22. It is organised by Star Media Group Bhd in collaboration with the Ipoh City Council, Perak Education Department and Perak Athletic Association.
The event’s platinum sponsor is telecommunications company YES while the other silver sponsors are F&N and Julies. The Perak Turf Club is the official venue sponsor.
Registration for the event has closed as the entries have reached the 15,000 cut-off mark.
