Flora Heart Health


Flora recently emphasized its commitment to a healthy diet and healthy lifestyles as the supporter of the Nawaloka Hospitals PLC Heart Walk. Flora has supported the Heart Walk for several years, in promoting awareness on heart health and this year expanded its support through unprecedented fundraising, increased advocacy from leadership and greater employee involvement.

Unilever employees, supplier networks, Nawaloka staff, doctors and specialists and other representatives together with many of those who want to maintain a healthy heart, laced up their sneakers to participate in the morning walk down Nawam Mawatha on Sunday.

Speaking on the initiative, Manojee Dabare, Category Leader Spreads at Unilever Sri Lanka stated, “Flora is one among the Unilever Global portfolio of products that focuses on eating and living well to improve heart health. We focus not only on helping our consumers lead a healthy, active lifestyle, but also on maintaining a vibrant, heart-healthy workplace.

Supporting the Nawaloka Hospital effort to improve heart health is just one of the ways that we hope to help further this mission. We provide a stage for people to make informed choices to get the most out of life and give them the confidence that they have the power to do amazing things because they are heart healthy.”

As the partner of the 2009 Heart Walk, Flora also conducted a heart health counter at Nawaloka, where walkers could refuel with a selection of heart-healthy Flora snacks and be informed on healthy eating through their website www.florahearts.lk which features a Heart Age Calculator that measures the age of their heart vs their real age. USL Foods Director Asanga Ranasinghe had the following to say.

“As an advocate for healthy, active lifestyles, we are proud to continuously support the fight against cardiovascular disease alongside the SLHA and Nawaloka. In keeping with Unilever’s mission of “adding vitality to life”, Flora encourages healthy, active lifestyles that lead to a healthy heart. We are proud to be a part of an effort that improves people’s lives and health.”

Unilever Sri Lanka’s decade’s long existence in the country has always kept the consumer and Sri Lanka at large at the forefront of its operations. In this endeavor, the company has continually been committed to raising the standards of living of the masses to bring about a positive change.
