UNDERPRIVILEGED children joining the upcoming Children’s Day celebration will get to quench their thirst with Sunquick fruit drinks courtesy of Barkath Co-Ro Manufacturing Sdn Bhd.
More than 1,000 children from various orphanages in Penang will be given 125ml Tetra Pak boxes of the drink, which comes in four flavours — refreshing ripe orange, tropical mixed mango, thirst-quenching apple and sweet berries.
Its commercial, marketing and product sales head K. Asokan said there would also be a free flow of Sunquick for the celebration’s 1,000 participants during the event.
The celebration will be held at the Penang City Park (formerly Youth Park) on Tuesday.
“The sponsorship is a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility initiative to create a joyful moment for the children in the event held in conjunction with World Children’s Day.
“We will also be sponsoring Kumpulan Barkath’s famous Hacks sweets to the children,” Asokan told a press conference recently.
Later, he handed over the sponsorship to Penang Consultative Goodwill Council chairman Tan Sri Mohd Yussof Latiff at the Kumpulan Barkath office in Beach Street.
The Sunquick fruit drinks were recently picked as Product of the Year in the fruit drinks category by The Nielsen Company Malaysia based on votes from over 2,000 consumers.
