This collaboration can be an important momentum for our brands, Indomie, Pop Mie and Indomilk in uniting and spreading enthusiasm for the young competitors of the Asian Games. We also support the Indofood movement to Satukan Tekad dan Semangat Indonesia. Via two instant noodle products, in our marketing campaign, we believe we can celebrate and remind the public of the biggest sporting event in Asia, which promotes Indonesia".
Taufik Wiraatmadja, also added, "In addition to instant noodles, we also include the Indomilk brand in this grand event. Indomilk as a nutritious dairy product, symbolizes the spirit of the 2018 Asian Games event, which projects enthusiasm and energy for the national team in their quest to achieve their best, in representing Indonesia. On this occasion, Indomie and Indomilk will launch a special packaging for the 2018 Asian Games so that the public, especially the younger generation, can remember and support the success of the Indonesian team, in the biggest sporting event in Asia."

Hopefully Indofood's support can improve the good image of the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia. We invite all Indonesian people to take part in the success of the 18th and the 2018 Asian Games, supporting the Indofood initiative Satukan Tekad dan Semangat Indonesia for the national team and unite the whole community not only in this biggest sporting event but for other activities and so on."
