The key factor driving this growth is more consumers staying at home, with coffee mixes the perfect choice to meet their demands in terms of value for money, convenience, and great taste, plus no need to go out to drink coffee (Source: Nielsen Retail Index).
Ms. Sriprapha Chingprasertsuk, Business Manager – Soluble Coffee and Creamer, Nestlé (Thai) Ltd., said, “We are capitalizing on the rising popularity of in-home coffee consumption by creating a new NESCAFÉ BLEND & BREW campaign to excite the market in the second half of the year. We are very pleased to announce the first collaboration between the number one coffee brand in Thailand and famous superstar couple Nadech and Yaya. NESCAFÉ is one of the first brands in the market with a major campaign to share the meaningful story of their bonding and connections beyond what we can see. We expect to expand our consumer base of ‘KafeSod’ coffee lovers and new groups of consumers while encouraging coffee drinking at home.”

“Well-Blended Taste and Great Aroma Completely.” They tell a great story of two people who understand each other’s minds. As coffee lovers, they know what is good and only choose the best for each other.
