New Ways to Enjoy the Goodness RIBENA

All time favorite since childhood!

Made from a special blend of New Zealand blackcurrants, this berrylicious taste of Ribena® is now passes and keep on being trusted by the next generation.

“The Ribena® brand is close to the hearts of many Malaysians and most of us have fond memories associated with Ribena® , especially of our mothers giving us the blackcurrant goodness of Ribena® . Nevertheless, even with a beloved brand like Ribena®  that has stood teh test of time, there is always something new we can do to resonate with the mothers of today in a fresh way.”-Ms Corinne Tan, Senior Brand Manager, Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SBFM).

In one of SBFM’s activities to engage with Malaysian mums and Ribena®  fans, SBFM organised  a special  Ribena® Berrylicious Workshop to celebrate and demonstrate the versatility of Ribena® , led by celebrity mum, Dr Jezamine Lim Iskander as the guest host.

During the workshop, guests had the opportunity to learn and try their hands at making unique Ribena® infused recipes from a traditional Vietnamese roll given a Ribena®  twist, to a spinach salad made more fun with Ribena®  and cheese tarts with jelly given the Ribena® touch. It was not just the recipes given a creative spin with Ribena® , as workshop participants also had the opportunity to unleash their creativity in the Decorate Your Cheese Tarts Mini contest with the winner taking home a limited edition Ribena®  mini fridge!

“Through this workshop, we wanted to offer Ribena®  fans versatile new ways to enjoy its distinct taste and blackcurrant goodness rich in Vitamin C. This workshop showcases unique new recipes that are more than desserts and drinks. With fun recipes like the Ribena®  spinach salad, perhaps we can even get kids to eat more vegetables. Preparing food and drinks is also a wholesome family activity that can bring all ages together, just as love for this time-honoured drink has united Malaysian for generations.”added Corrine.

Dr Jezamine also shared her love for Ribena®  with the workshop participants. “I was one of those children who enjoyed the blackcurrant goodness of Ribena®  during my growing-up years. It is so convenient to be able to get your daily dose of goodness in such a delicious drink! Today Ribena®  comes in many variants, even a less  sweet option, so I can choose the most suitable treat for my family. Nevertheless, although the taste of Ribena®  is really special on its own, it is also eye-opening for me to learn just how versatile Ribena® is.

As a mum of three, I am spreading my love of Ribena®  to my children, so I hope my ids will join me in expanding our horizons with Ribena® . Preparing food with my children is one way I am nurturing and bonding with them through fun and mentally-enriching activities besides creating great childhood memories. I am looking forward to trying the yummy and wholesome recipes demonstrated with my little ones. I think they will certainly enjoying expressing themselves while decorating the Ribena® cheese tarts with jelly. I hope all Ribena® fans will also have as much fun in the kitchen with Ribena® .”

The Ribena®  Berrylicious Workshop was held at Handcrafted Creative Bites Studio in Setia City Mall and guided by the studio’s Food Director, Wong May Chew who also created the recipes demonstrated during the workshop.

The session was broadcast live on Ribena®  Malaysia’s Facebook Page and is still available for viewing.

STARBUCKS Signing Store Celebrates Its 2nd Anniversary

And with the conjuction of the anniversary, Starbucks introduces its Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Starbucks Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies

For every purchase of the cookies at Starbucks, RM1 will be channeled to the Silent Teddies Bakery, a social enterprise started by the Community Service Centre for the deaf (CSCD) to support their programs and its schools for the Deaf children.

“It is heart-warming to see how Malaysians are coming together to support the under-represented groups in Malaysia. I am especially inspired by how the Starbucks Signing Store has provided a platform for the Deaf community to work and also to continue developing soft skills that would allow them to live a fulfilling life. With the help of corporations like Starbucks, I believe there is potential for more workplaces in Malaysia to become more inclusive, and more diverse.” said Yang Berhormat Puan Hannah Yeoh, Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development when she officiated the Starbucks Signing Store’s 2nd anniversary celebration.

As part of the continuous learning and development initiatives at Starbucks, the Starbucks Signing Store in Malaysia now houses a total of NINE Deaf baristas who are 100% certified coffee masters. The Deaf Coffee Masters in Malaysia will be distinguishable by black aprons that feature a special embroidery with ‘Starbucks’ in Malaysian Sign Language.

In addition, these Deaf baristas are also qualified to conduct coffee chat sessions with the public using sign language much like the baristas at the Starbucks Reserve™ stores in Malaysia.

Chief Executive Officer of Berjaya Food Berhad and Managing Director of Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei, Mr. Sydney Quays said,

“A big part of what we do at Starbucks is to create a culture of diversity and inclusion. Through this partnership with Silent Teddies Bakery, we hope to further improve the lives of the Deaf community than just providing them with job opportunities. Being the first country to introduce the Starbucks Signing Store concept into the world was a stepping stone for us. Its success has even inspired our North American Starbucks partners to learn and study our business model, which has now materialized into the first Starbucks in the United States which plans to open this October.”

Each Starbucks® Jumbo Cookie are unique as they are all handmade with no preservatives added. The cookies will be priced at RM 6.90, and will gradually be rolled out to all Starbucks stores nationwide, including East Malaysia, starting from 8 August 2018 onwards.

Starbucks Malaysia has also launched the exclusive Signing Store 2nd Anniversary merchandise which are only available at the Starbucks Signing Store at Bangsar Village II.

A uniquely uplifting Starbucks Experience

Inside the Starbucks Signing Store, customers will be familiar with what they see and smell: the rich aroma of the finest Arabica coffee, served by partners in the iconic green aprons in a warm, bustling environment. But while Deaf partners engage with customers with the enthusiasm, passion and craft that they expect from Starbucks, they deliver the iconic Starbucks Experience in a uniquely uplifting way.

When customers go to order, they will notice something different, as the usual greeting and sound of baristas calling out beverage orders is replaced by sign language. Customers place orders using a simple menu card which they mark before passing it to the barista and Deaf partners use handwritten notes to communicate with customers. Upon placing the order, each customer is given a number on the receipt and once the beverage has been prepared, the number is displayed on a screen telling them it’s ready.

Strengthening Communities across Asia

Starbucks Malaysia has a proud history of employing under-represented groups in the workplace. This includes the launch of the Starbucks VIP Program three years ago to attract mature partners who are 55 years of age and above. As part of the program, Starbucks provides flexible work hours and other benefits for seniors. There are currently more than 10 VIP partners working in Starbucks Malaysia stores, the oldest being 73 years old.
