Earlier, the company was recognised by the Ministry of Finance among Vietnam’s top performers in tax contribution, marking nearly a decade that Nestlé Vietnam was awarded a Certificate of Merit by tax management agencies at both the central and local level for the effective implementation of their tax payment obligations, playing a role in implementing the country’s socioeconomic development targets.
Also in 2020 in Dong Nai where the company is based, Nestlé Vietnam was awarded a Certificate of Merit by Vietnamese prime minister to recognise its achievements in socioeconomic development as well as corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.

“A global brand with good knowledge about local culture, Nestlé Vietnam always puts transparency and obedience of Vietnamese legal documents, particularly tax payment obligations, at our top priority,” said Johana Wiriadinata, Finance and Control director at Nestlé Vietnam.
“We are committed to further supporting the efforts to improve tax management efficiency through applying a tax-related risk management system and redesigning IT application and business process the tax sector is currently deploying,” she added.
Johana noted that despite a very challenging 2020, the company had scaled up efforts to complete its budget contribution target.
Aside form tax payments, the company has paid due regard to the fields that bring benefits where it counts most for the society, including nutrition, focusing on children; playing role in shaping thriving communities; and ensuring sustainable development in the countryside and management of natural resources in the future.
