Nestlé Professional has partnered with First Nations workplace supplies company Mandura, to celebrate all places of work and trading places across Australia.
The partnership sees Nescafé Blend 43 launch a limited edition range of instant coffee 1kg tins and 280pk sachets exclusive to Mandura. Mandura’s purpose is to elevate and support First Nations peoples in Australian businesses and communities.
The Nescafé Blend 43 and Mandura limited edition packaging features a Mandura-commissioned artwork by First Nations artist Murray Murrajuaiie Belford, a PITTA-PITTA man from the Channel Country surrounding the Boulia district. The artwork tells the story of Mandura, which means ‘trading place’ in the Jaithmathang Bimble language.
Nestlé Professional General Manager Scott Stuckmann says, “In our commitment to valuing all workplaces and communities across Australia, Nestlé Professional is proud to partner with First Nations workplace supplies company, Mandura, on this project.”
“Our partnership with Mandura helps provide access to workplace supplies across Australian businesses, with First Nations peoples and businesses top of mind. Celebrating the story and diversity of Australian trading places through the limited edition Nescafé Blend 43 coffee tin and sachet aims to help businesses acknowledge our connection to the land on which we live and operate.”
Mandura Chief Executive Officer Scott Allen says, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Nestlé Professional on the Nescafé Blend 43 limited edition range which highlights the story of diverse trading places. This partnership allows us to further our goals of donating 20 per cent of profits to the Pauline E. McLeod Foundation. Dedicated to creating change for the next generation of First Nations Australians, the Foundation focuses on mental health support, entrepreneurship, education and positive employment opportunities.”
The limited edition Nescafé Blend 43 1kg tins are available exclusively via the Mandura and Winc websites from June 2022, with the 280pk sachets available from July 2022. For further information on the initiative, visit nestleprofessional.com.au/nescafemandura.
