Beverage maker spreads safety message to education dept offices

Putrajaya Federal Territory Education Department was one of the offices that took part in Yakult’s ‘Kita Jaga Kita’ corporate responsibility programme.

Manufacturer of probiotic beverages Yakult (M) Sdn Bhd organised its “Kita Jaga Kita” corporate responsibility programme at 12 state education department offices in peninsular Malaysia to benefit more than 3,500 employees.

The programme was organised to curb the spread of Covid-19 by ensuring all staff and visitors complied with the standard operating procedures.

Among the initiatives carried out were supplying automated temperature screening system and providing stickers with messages related to physical distancing and good healthcare measures.

“Following the success of the ‘Kita Jaga Kita’ initiative that we launched earlier at 26 primary schools and 20 secondary schools nationwide, we wanted to extend the effort to state education department offices, ” said Yakult managing director Hiroshi Hamada.

“As the number of Covid-19 cases keeps increasing, preventive measures must be implemented.”

He said that as a corporate citizen, Yakult wanted to support the health and safety of all Malaysians.

He elaborated that the programme was carried out in line with the company’s corporate philosophy on “preventive medicine”.

The programme ended with scheduled visits by Hamada and Yakult public relations and science associate director Mazlyn Mena to the state education department offices.

During the visits, Hamada presented 400 bottles of Yakult probiotic drinks to the education department staff.
