The first Nestlé floating supermarket will set sail on the Brazilian Amazon to extend its reach to over 800,000 customers. Named Nestlé Até Você a Bordo - or Nestlé Takes You Onboard - the barge will journey to 18 small cities from July 1 for nearly 3 weeks, docking one day in each city. Leaving the Brazilian port of Belém, the vessel will sail to the region of Marajó Island to the city of Almeirim, into the Baixo Amazonas, or the Amazon Lowlands region, before returning to Belém. Ivan Zurita, CEO of Nestlé Brazil, said: "It will be a service to the population of the Amazon, who has streets and avenues in the form of rivers.  It is a project aligned with our concept of Regionalisation, based on the different profiles of consumers, where we deal with each region as a different area."
