Huggies Dry Pants absorb wetness instantly 
Because of the Huggies’ Dry Xpert Channel Technology 
That features an X-shaped channel in the diaper’s core. 
It distributes wetness evenly across 4 ways for fast absorption, 
Thus keeping the baby’s skin dry and comfortable 
Throughout the day giving them the freedom and comfort 
To explore even more!


“Huggies Malaysia understands the struggle Malaysian parents go through

To find the most comfortable diaper pants for their fast and active babies.

Which is why the Huggies Dry Pants were created!

Only Huggies Dry Pants can do the job thanks to its fast absorption,

During this pandemic that is plaguing the world, 
Vit’s has taken various noble initiatives 
To jointly help Malaysians affected by this pandemic.
 
In conjunction with this August independence month, 
Vit’s has collaborated with Sinar Harian 
To run a program to help the “Wira Negara” who have served the country. 
Those who were once heroes to defend the homeland deserve our appreciation. 
This collaboration was carried out with the Veteran.my Association 
And the Malaysian Senior Citizens Caring Association 
To donate a number of food aid to national heroes affected during this pandemic.
 
“Thank you for giving Vit’s the opportunity to collaborate in this campaign. 
We are very proud to meet national heroes who have done so much for our country. "
Without the services of our national heroes, 
We will not be able to enjoy all the pleasures in Malaysia," 
Said Lai Yeah Tat, Managing Director of Vit’s.
 
This is the most meaningful CSR for Vit’s because with program like this, 
We as Malaysians will appreciate the fighters who have defended the country.
 
Vit’s visited one of the former national heroes, 
Bohari @ Abu Bakar Razali, 62, 
Who has left his career as a Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia (TLDM). 
Bitter and sweet memories are still fresh in his memory. 
While on duty, 
He nearly fell victim to a bullet while patrolling the reef area.
 
Bohari is one of the country's fighters 
Who is honoured in this Jejak Wira Merdeka program.
 
Bohari received some donation as well as food aid 
To ease his burden which is now facing various health problems 
Such as diabetes, asthma, kidney and chronic lung disease.
 
"With the current situation, 
I regularly commute to Sabak Hospital. 
Since after the "bypass" heart surgeries, 
I have always had difficulties in breathing. 
I want to use oxygen, but it is not cheap. 
So, I had to go to the hospital. 
During this Covid, 
I did not dare to go out. 
Almost a year sitting at home, "
he said. 
Bohari who is now getting sick had to use disposable diapers 
To reduce movement due to his health factors.
 
Vit Makanan Managing Director, 
Lai Yaeh Tat described the Jejak Wira program as very meaningful 
To commemorate the heroes who have fought for national peace.
 Vit’s has donated 400 packs of dried noodles to the Veteran.my Association 
And the Malaysian Senior Citizens Caring Association 
As a token of gratitude to Malaysians 
Who have supported Vit’s from then until now, 
Said Yaeh Tat who is the 2nd generation of Vit’s legacy.
 
"We hope this donation can ease the burden of national heroes 
In this time of pandemic," he said.

Atlas Vending Launches Sapot SME Campaign in Conjunction with Hari Malaysia

ATLAS Vending, 
Malaysia’s biggest vending machine supplier 
Is looking to make Malaysia Day more meaningful 
With their new Sapot SME campaign, 
Featuring a multibrand collaboration involving 13 SMEs, 
Each from a different state in Malaysia. 
In partnership with ATLAS Vending, 
Each SME will place Halal-certified local favourites 
In ATLAS Vending’s machines 
Located at the KLIA Ekspres Departure Hall in KL Sentral. 
The SMEs will be able to use the vending machines rent-free 
With free refilling services for the next three months 
Starting from mid-September onwards. 
The Sapot SME campaign is the first phase 
In ATLAS Vending’s upcoming rollout of the new ATLAS Minit Mart concept 
Which is set to offer an expanded range of products via the vending machines.
 
This initiative is in line with ATLAS Vending’s effort 
To support local SMEs affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 
In this collaboration, 
The 13 SMEs will be able to use the vending machines to expand market access, 
Reaching a wider audience by offering convenient purchase of their products 
Around the clock from the vending machines. 
To protect customers passing through the KL Sentral travel hub during the pandemic, 
ATLAS Vending has also installed 99.99% effective UV light disinfection 
On the high-contact keypad. 
To further keep customers safe from UV light exposure,
The UV light disinfection feature will be disabled 
If people are detected nearby by the motion sensors on the machine.

The brands participating in this campaign are Madina Food (Perlis), 
Nature's Fresh (Kedah), Yee Hup Hiong Piah (Perak), 
TalentCook (Penang), TFN (Selangor), myEureka (Melaka), 
Rehan (Negeri Sembilan), Azhar Food (Johor), 
Tokey Sambal Hitam (Pahang), Anopokku (Terengganu), 
Akifcafe (Kelantan), Heera Enterprise (Sabah) and Lee Fah Mee (Sarawak).
 
“At ATLAS Vending, 
In conjunction with Malaysia Day, 
We wanted to do something to benefit our fellow Malaysians 
Impacted by the pandemic. 
We found that many local entrepreneurs had to scale back their business plans, 
Amidst challenges of stock logistics, 
Rental costs and shortened operation hours, 
So we proposed to offer our vending machines 
As automated retail channels to help them expand their reach. 
We chose Sapot SME as the theme for the campaign 
As the SME Association of Malaysia found that 
100,000 SMEs have closed their business 
Since the first Movement Control Order (MCO) 
On 18 March 2020 and another 50,000 SMEs 
Are at risk of shutting down their business 
If our current MCO 3.0 is extended further. 
Through the Sapot SME campaign, 
We hope to celebrate the Malaysian spirit 
By supporting entrepreneurs across the country and their determination to survive,” 
Said Amy Gan, Head of Marketing & Ancillary Business, ATLAS Vending.
 
Expanding Accessibility To Hometown Favourites
With the ongoing pandemic, 
Many Malaysians living in the Klang Valley 
May be missing the opportunity to stock up on hometown favourites 
Or other products they often purchase during domestic travels. 
Through the Sapot SME campaign, 
ATLAS Vending is offering an additional channel for Malaysians 
To conveniently access products from different states, 
From their vending machines.

Chai Chin Siew, Marketing Manager of Lee Fah Mee Sdn Bhd based in Sarawak said, 
“As a Sarawak-based manufacturer and exporter of dried and instant noodles, 
This pandemic has slowed down our expansion plan into West Malaysia. 
When ATLAS Vending approached us for the Sapot SME campaign, 
Deciding to participate was an easy decision to make. 
Our products are local Sarawakian favourites and thanks to ATLAS Vending, 
Our instant noodles and snacks like our Sarawak Laksa Chips 
Can now be accessed through a new channel, 
Not only by Sarawakians who have not been home due to the pandemic 
But also by other Malaysians who have yet to try them! 
This campaign is definitely a great Malaysia Day gift for us.”
 
“For some of our partners, 
They may have reduced their physical presence due to loss of income. 
By embracing technology and placing their products in ATLAS Vending’s machines, 
They now have new market access options 
And new ways to promote their products. 
We want to help SMEs resume their business activities 
And also embrace the new normal in doing business. 
While the pandemic is ongoing, 
We also want to protect consumers 
By arming all 13 vending machines 
With 99.99% effective UV light disinfection on the commonly-touched keypads,” 
Gan said.
 
"We have been in the online market since 2017 
And have not explored a physical sales channel so far. 
Being able to sell our products physically 
Via our very own vending machine 
In the heart of Kuala Lumpur, 
Provided by ATLAS Vending, 
Is a meaningful milestone. 
This opportunity from ATLAS Vending has enabled us 
To expand beyond our current market, 
And we hope it will lead to growth in sales 
That will in turn allow us to survive this pandemic and expand in the future,” 
Shared Khairril Adhzaha Awahab, 
Founder of Tokey Sambal Hitam, 
Supplier and producer of Sambal Hitam from Pahang.
 
Tan Ai Leen, Director of Epic Food Manufacturing, 
The Penang-based manufacturer of TalentCook, said, 
“Our mission is to share our ethnic food with consumers globally 
And enable Malaysians to enjoy their favourite Penang foods anytime, anywhere. 
ATLAS Vending has taken our dream one step further 
With their vending machines that offer Klang Valley consumers 
Another convenient way to make purchases. 
We would recommend other SMEs 
To consider placing their own products in vending machines!”
 
Sapot SME is just the first phase 
In our planned introduction of new vending machines 
Across Malaysia that will offer much more than the commonly sold drinks and snacks.
Through the introduction of the ATLAS Minit Mart vending machines, 
Malaysian consumers will be able to access a 24-hour automated source of products 
They used to buy in convenience stores and mini markets. 
From instant noodles to sambal and pastes and spices for cooking,
To a wide range of local fried snacks, dried fruits and even popcorn and brownies, 
And on to products like ice blended milkshakes, 
The products offered through the Mini Mart 
Will transform the concept of vending machines in the minds of Malaysians,” 
Gan further elaborated.
 
The Sapot SME campaign 
Is supported by Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB) 
As the official venue partner, 
Lending help to strengthen SMEs through this meaningful initiative 
In conjunction with Malaysia Day. 
Check out the 13 vending machines located in KL Sentral 
To explore local favourites from SMEs participating in the Sapot SME campaign. 
Each vending machine has been decorated with design elements 
To reflect each state’s identity. 

Let’s celebrate Malaysia by choosing to Sapot SME 
And support each other. 
As they say,#KitaJagaKita. 
Other SMEs interested to be part of the ATLAS Vending Sapot SME campaign
Can contact ATLAS Vending via their hotline at 1300-1300-61,
