Manila, Philippines – Food and beverage brand Knorr in the Philippines, which is under Unilever, has recently launched a new campaign as part of Unilever’s ‘Future Foods’ agenda, aiming to fight undernutrition in the country. 

Featuring well-known local basketball player Marc Pingris, as well as two other notable individuals – a multi-awarded teacher and the first-ever Tigwahanon Manobo medical graduate – the ad highlights that their success all thanks to a combination of hard work as well as eating nutritious vegetable meals, made more delicious by Knorr’s line of products.

The ad, made by creative agency MullenLowe TREYNA, is part of the launch for Knorr’s enhanced ‘Nutri-Sarap’ Nutrition Program, which focuses on two things—education and product improvement.

Under the program, Knorr strengthens its partnership with various government agencies, LGUs and NGOs—including the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Education (DepEd), Scaling Up Nutrition Business Network, and National Nutrition Council as well as Pilipinas Kontra Gutom—to educate parents on how to prepare healthy, delicious, and affordable home-cooked meals for their families.

“The brand believes that the greatest weapon one can use in this battle is knowledge. And through its different partners, Knorr is disseminating information that empowers parents to build healthy eating habits for their kids and diversify their family’s diet, especially in areas where help is needed the most,” the company said in a press statement.

Meanwhile, Kristine Go, vice president for foods and refreshments at Unilever Philippines, commented, “We’re doing everything we can to help secure a brighter future for the Filipinos. In the past, aside from education, we were also able to sustain feeding programs that we are proud to say have really made a huge difference in the lives of beneficiaries. With the pandemic limiting our movements, our search for more ways to make nutrition more accessible led us to implement improvements to our well-loved products.”
