Nestle awards scholarship to the children of street vendors selling their ice cream products. The street vendor beneficiaries are located in Metro Manila, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu City, Bulacan and Laguna. The program was launched in 2014 to recognize the hard work, performance and loyalty of its street vendors who have been the brand’s valuable partners in bringing Nestle Ice Cream to consumers in the residential communities.
Nestle is the world’s largest food and beverage company. It seeks to enhance the quality of life and contributing to a healthier future as well as to shape a better and healthier world.
As we are all aware, street food vending is an important source of informal employment here in the Philippines, where a large number of street vendors are typically located and roaming at the most convenient points for consumers. Observe how these street vendors can transform and invigorate the company’s operations.
However, street food vendors face a variety of constraints including lack of knowledge and skills in business, limited training opportunities, and restricted mobility that prevents them from improving their capacities. Street vendors selling Nestle products may not be new, but there is no denying that it still remains a huge trend even today. They serve to invigorate the Philippines’ streets.
They are the counterpart of mobile food trucks in other countries. This old culture of eating Nestle brand products through these street vendors has helped revolutionized the way the brand reaches its target customers. Street vendors role is challenging, competitive and requires patience and hard work to survive the heat and the rain.
