Nestle Jamaica, in its bid to highlight its mandate of creating shared value within communities across Jamaica, recently launched its Employee Volunteer Programme, where members of the global food company will take time out to participate in the company's various Creating Shared Value initiatives to ensure that activities preserve the environment for future generations. Literacy was the focus during the first phase of the project, and with hands and hearts joined with CB Foods, Hi-Lo and Manpower and Maintenance. Three reading gardens were constructed in schools across the three counties.
