November promises to be one to remember as The Gleaner has dubbed it Food Month. With the launch of Food Month last Thursday and Restaurant Week yesterday, the excitement is 'palatable'. And our sponsors and participating restaurants agree.
We always get the best coverage from The Gleaner, and we have built up quite a rapport over the years. The feedback from our customers has been phenomenal. Persons are also more attracted to the restaurant because of the promotions and discounts and it does work for us.

It is very vital to what we do as we are a food company and we are the best at what we do. The alliance with The Gleaner is the right vehicle to promote our products and services and we want to remind our consumers/shoppers about the products we offer. We are a company of strong brands that include Betty Sweetened Condensed Milk, Supligen and Milo. We want our consumers to also remember the products that they grew up on. Nestle products are apart of Jamaica and we want to ensure that we build strong brands for the future.
Richard Dunbar - category channel sales development manager, Nestlé
It (Food Month) is an excellent opportunity to talk about our well-known products and tell them of the benefits and best value from these products. I am always impressed and fascinated when I can learn from our consumers. This might happen in market-research focus groups or as we have been doing here in Jamaica, in household visits.
Going into consumers homes, talking to them about our products while they are preparing their meals is always a, rewarding experience and, as a positive side effect, I have learnt a lot about Jamaican cuisine.
