Coca-Cola® Releases Newest Coke Design with Icon of Culture Marshmello

For its newest limited-edition taste, Coca-Cola® Creations is releasing a remix in collaboration with GRAMMY-nominated musician Marshmello.

Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola®, the company’s first ever beverage co-created with an artist, captures the sensation of blending chart-topping tracks in a one-time release.

“It was great to collaborate with Coca-Cola® on this limited-edition drop,” said Marshmello. “We created a vibey blend of my favorite flavors in this all-new mix. I think it tastes amazing and I hope fans love it too.”

One might think Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola® would be marshmallow-flavored, but as with the epic drops that fill his sets, the magic here is in the unexpected. Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola® is a refreshing fusion of the artist’s favorite flavors, strawberry and watermelon, mixed with a great Coca-Cola® taste.

“Music – just like Coca-Cola™ – has such an amazing power in connecting communities and creating opportunities for shared experiences,” said Teejae Sonza, Marketing Director for Trademark Coca-Cola of the Coca-Cola ASEAN & South Pacific operating unit. “For this second Coca-Cola Creations drop we are doing here in ASEAN & South Pacific, we sought to add an unexpected remix of flavors to a great Coca-Cola ® taste, and Marshmello is the perfect collaborator,” she further added. “It is an exciting step for our brand to introduce Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola® and invite fans to immerse themselves in Mello’s world.”

Known for his desire to positively impact culture with his music, Marshmello’s collaboration with Coca-Cola® invites fans to experience the Melloverse for themselves.

Fans can also scan the QR code on the can to be transported to the Coca-Cola® Creations online hub via www.coca-cola.com/creations, where several different digital experiences can be enjoyed.

Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola® will also be available to purchase in 320ml can x 24 in a case in a Zero Sugar version. Collectible slim cans with striking black and white visuals pay homage to the artist’s signature aesthetic, as well as dripped Spencerian script, melding the brands together into a smooth and satisfying vibe. Coca-Cola® partnered with Forpeople on the packaging design.

When Marshmello’s Limited Edition Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar release debuts in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines in August 2022, you can sample the blend for yourself.

Coca-Cola® keeps investigating distinctive innovations and unforeseen partnerships motivated by creativity and cultural connections. For the most recent news, go to www.coca-cola.com/creations or follow Coca-Cola on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Galaxy for the Planet 

Since the launch of the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has incorporated recycled materials not just in our packaging, but also in the hardware of our new products. These are the first steps in our Galaxy for the Planet initiative, which includes our continued incorporation of recycled plastics and the creation of new materials in partnership with leading sustainability partners. As we continue to pursue innovations in sustainable manufacturing, we are proud to announce that more than 90% of the new Galaxy Buds2 Pro is made with recycled materials. The new Galaxy Z series also incorporates ocean-bound plastics into key components and 100 percent recycled paper for its packaging. We also reduced volume of the packaging up to 58% compared to the first-generation Galaxy foldables. This equates to an avoidance of approximately 10,000 tons of carbon emissions from transportation this year.

WalterMart pushes a partnership with Mayan farmers to the regions and gives customers additional value

Provincial consumers can fill their shopping bags with as many fresh fruits and vegetables for only P399 while also helping our Filipino farmers

Community grocery giant WalterMart continues to improve its retail offering while the nation deals with post-pandemic difficulties including rising costs and inflation consequences by launching the UNLI FRESH program in major provinces like Cavite, Batangas, Pampanga, and Bulacan.

These provincial communities will receive a value-oriented shopping experience from UNFLI FRESH thanks to its partnership with core trade partner Mayani, the nation’s fastest-growing farm-to-table platform with a network of over 139,000 smallholder farmers and fisherfolks, beginning with Waltermart Bacoor this August 5–7.

“We see this as a pro-active shared step towards making fresh produce and agricultural products more accessible, value-driven, and perhaps most importantly in light of the growing provincial demand, more inclusive to the evolving consumer base beyond the metropolis,” said Lance Villanueva, the Co-Founder and Chief of Fulfillment of Mayani.

Villanueva also pointed out that this builds on the impact partnership momentum WalterMart and Mayani started after jointly activating their Palengke Fresh and Community Pantry network support projects in 2021.

“With the recent earthquake up in the north and the disruption in the agricultural sector, this undertaking could not have come at a more relevant time,” Villanueva adds.

WalterMart will elevate the shopping experience through a dedicated UNLI FRESH grocery pavilion while being compliant with its 5S safe shopping program: Screening, Shield, Sanitation, Social distancing, and Service Heart. The said spot will also be festive in terms of fresh options – a wide assortment that the consumers can fill their bags with for only P399.

“I believe there is no better time to let our provincial shoppes enjoy our UNLIFRESH than now. At WalterMart, it is our mission to elevate our customers’ shopping experience. Because of this we want to give all of our shoppers the chance to enjoy the UNLIFRESH activity that we have initially offered in select Manila stores. Not only does it give value, we believe it also adds fun to the whole shopping mission,” said Len Salita, Vice President for Merchandising and Head of the Fresh Department of WalterMart.

Salita adds that Mayani has been a long-time partner of WalterMart and the common values that they share simply defines the success of this endeavor. “We trust that given Mayani’s strong network, we will be able to deliver the real value of having directly sourced fresh fruits and vegetables within our customers’ reach, and the same time extend the much needed market linkage to our partner farmers.”

UNLI FRESH will arrive in a caravan from Friday to Sunday at various provincial WalterMart Malls: from August 12 to 14 in Tanauan, Batangas; from August 19 to 21 in San Fernando, Pampanga; and from August 26 to 28 in Sta Maria, Bulacan.

BingoPlus president Jasper Vicencio and MPE’s Peachy Veneracion signing ceremony

BingoPlus, the country’s first legally operating online bingo site, came up with a fresh strategy to advance its support for Miss Philippines Earth and further its campaign for a greener, safer planet (MPE). The gaming company, whose mission statement is “Live responsibly and work with our community,” connected with the beauty pageant whose special goal is to have its contestants and winners actively promote and help preserve the environment.

In order to get its employees involved in MPE’s upcoming events, such as tree planting, beach clean-ups, and the promotion of tourism destinations, BingoPlus will join MPE in its environmental awareness initiatives and environmental preservation campaigns across the country. BingoPlus had started its own relief initiatives for cities and communities devastated by natural disasters brought on by climate change. In Cebu and Bohol in December 2021, BingoPlus (www.bingoplus.com) contributed to the provision of necessities and the reconstruction of homes damaged by Typhoon Odette.

“Initiatives conducted by BingoPlus under its mother company, Leisure & Resorts World Corporation are aligned with the goal of Miss Philippines Earth. We likewise believe in its 5R’s tenet: Re-think, Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, and Respect,” said AB Leisure Exponent Inc. president Jasper Vicencio.

“BingoPlus is committed to the community it operates in. Bingo has been a major component of Filipino culture and is one of the traditional games to get the family together. Family bonding, socializing and entertainment get us through tough times and makes us upbeat about sharing positivity.

“As a company we aim to teach and create more livelihood programs so families can put more food on the table. We also aim to bridge and narrow the gap for students to gain access to better education, to promote health and wellness programs to benefit those afflicted with poor health; and to safeguard our environment and boost its sustainability,” Vicencio explained.

Bikers are urged by the Philippine Veterans Bank to participate in the “Ride for Valor”

The Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) today urged bike enthusiasts to participate in the “Ride for Valor,” a non-competitive bike ride that will be held on August 28 to honor Filipino soldiers who protected the nation from Japanese forces during World War II. The PVB is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The event was originally scheduled for last April, but Mike Villa-Real, PVB vice president for communications, stated that owing to pandemic limitations and the elections, it has been moved to August 28 to coincide with National Heroes Day and mark the bank’s 30th anniversary.

“Through this event, we commemorate the unsung and unknown heroes of World War II and the Bataan Death March who bravely fought and sacrificed their lives for our country and freedom,” he said.

Villa-Real explained that the bike ride aims to raise funds for the Filipino-American Memorial Endowment (FAME), a non-government organization that maintains the kilometer markers of the Bataan Death March from Mariveles, Bataan to Capas, Tarlac. At least 10 kilometer markers in Mariveles and at least 4 in Limay have to be relocated due to road widening.

He said the event’s format for this year is Gran Fondo or “Big Ride,” and each participant will have a “passport” that they need to bring to three stops: Mt. Samat in Bataan, San Fernando Train/Water Station in Pampanga, and the Death March Memorial Shrine in Capas, Tarlac.

Each stop will have optional destinations such as the Stotsenburg Park near the Clark Parade Grounds and the Bamban Museum of History in Tarlac, where participants will be receive their ride kits.

Villa-Real said a 12-hour cut-off will be implemented during the event, and participants may finish the entire route or join along the stops.

“There will be a mechanic to help those who will experience mechanical issues and roving marshals to monitor the progress of the participants. Support vehicles are allowed, but participants should not ride the vehicle unless they decide to withdraw from the bike ride,” he noted.

Those interested in joining the bike ride may register online at bit.ly/RideforValor2022 and pay P550 per individual and P2,100 per group of five persons. Only bikes with brakes are allowed in the event, and participants must be fully vaccinated.

Each participant will be given a bib number, a bike sticker, an event shirt, a loot bag, and commemorative patches on the day of the event.

PVB is a commercial bank owned by World War II veterans and their families. As part of its charter, PVB allocates 20% of its annual net income for the benefit of its shareholders.

Around 80,000 Filipino and American soldiers and prisoners of war were forced by the Japanese military to march 69 miles from Bataan to Tarlac during World War II.

Only over 54,000 people made it to the camp, and of them, about 20,000 perished from infections, famine, dehydration, Japanese captors’ brutality, and other causes.

The event is sponsored by Booster-C, Air21, Panahon TV, and Shimano.

Many companies worldwide have been forced to develop novel strategies as a result of the pandemic’s hurdles in order to gain market share.

The local brand Mr. Cool of Mr. Zolutions, Inc. continues to expand with the expansion of its brand not only in the Philippines but also internationally, notably in the United States of America, as health and safety remain a top priority among homes and businesses.

I really love this product because it is so helpful to me especially in my car needs. I’m so delighted at how effective it is in my space and its fragrance is indeed so satisfying.
