Dharnesh Gamunlal Gordhon
President Director of PT Nestlé Indonesia

  • Since its initiation, BritCham CEO Series has sought to deliver the best value by presenting prominent speakers from a wide variety of business sectors throughout all of our sessions. In September, we got the chance to have a brief discussion with yet another distinguished speaker, the President Director of PT Nestlé Indonesia, Dharnesh Gamunlal Gordhon. Moderated by BritCham Executive Director Chris Wren, the session shared Nestlé’s vision on healthy living in Indonesia and how Nestlé have proved their commitment to this matter through the implementation of the Nestlé Shared Values agenda.

  • Gordhon highlighted the key points for potential UK Companies or SMEs that are planning to penetrate the Indonesian market: “Do not think that people in Indonesia are just waiting for your product to come to the market. Indonesia values the effort and how the brand resonates with the community and is valued locally. Understand where you want to be and focus on that region. Be a sustainable brand that gives training to local communities and involves them in the production process.”

  • The BritCham CEO Series is held exclusively in conjunction with the BritCham Professional Women’s Group. BritCham is proud to remain a pioneering chamber in having the only active women’s group, supporting professional development and empowerment for women in Indonesia. Through a vast network and an ever-growing number of members, BritCham’s Professional Women Group is an important supporter of BritCham’s cutting edge drive for innovation through ideas and technology.

  • It turns out that BritCham and Nestlé have several ‘shared values’ such as supporting local values and community-based products. Our Chairman, Adrian Short, in turn presented Gordhon with the BritCham ‘Giving Kids A Sporting Chance’ souvenir, a bamboo speaker made by talented local artisans in Yogyakarta. Many thanks to Gordhon and Nestlé Indonesia for sharing such valuable tips and tricks on living healthily and growing your business in Indonesia.
