Company to reinforce its ‘Eat Right and Be Active' campaign

May, 2013: FrieslandCampina Middle East, part of Royal FrieslandCampina -one of the largest dairy-cooperative in the world and famous for its Rainbow Milk brand, has received appreciation from the Ministry of Health - Sharjah Medical District for its contribution to the dairy sector and various public activities on leading and promoting the goodness of milk.

The government endorsement follows FrieslandCampina ME's recently-launched campaign - Eat Right, Be Active. As part of the campaign, the company emphasized the Eat Right, Be Active message through activities in various educational institutions as well as to medical professionals operating in the UAE under the patronage of the Ministry of Health, under the auspices of Sharjah Medical Zone and support of the Department of Nutrition and Medical Education.

The company's activities highlighted the goodness and necessity of milk in our daily diets and as part of the initiatives by the UAE Ministry of Health to boost milk consumption. Officials from FrieslandCampina also spoke about the advantages and health benefits of milk consumption and the company's efforts to further the cause.

“Sharjah Medical District is working to ensure that the importance of good health is promoted to everyone. We are happy with the efforts undertaken by FrieslandCampina ME in this healthy initiative to reach out to the community.

In his comments on the special event, Maurits Klavert, Managing Director at FrieslandCampina Middle East, said: “As one of the leading milk brands, we have taken on the mantle to promote a healthy lifestyle by popularizing and supporting milk consumption. Through this special Eat Right and Be Active campaign, we aim to share information about the goodness of milk and engage a number of schools with games, fun events and lots of interesting activities. We are thankful for the support and encouragement from the UAE Ministry of Health and Sharjah Medical District.”

FrieslandCampina ME and the Ministry of health are conducting school programs and health camps to promote milk consumption and to raise awareness on the importance of healthy diet and physical activity among children.
