New Moon Chilled & Frozen – Deliciously Convenient for a Quick and Healthy Meal – Wholemeal Buns & Mini Mantous


While celebrity endorsement is synonymous with New Moon, the selection process and deciding criteria for a suitable brand ambassador are stringent to ensure that the brand ambassador and New Moon complement each other.

New Moon is a homegrown brand that has achieved many accolades such as the Singapore Promising Brand Award. Similarly, successful Artiste Networks Artiste Jeanette Aw, is not only a permanent fixture in Mediacorp's annual Most Popular Female Artiste Award but is also recognized for her acting skills and hard work. With the launch of the Chilled & Frozen range, New Moon is extending from the canned food that it is synonymous with to a range of fresh food, thus the endorsement of fresh face, Jeanette can only be said to be a perfect match.

Due to her hectic schedule, Jeanette is hardly able to eat the home-cooked food that she loves. New Moon Chilled & Frozen products are convenient, easy-to-prepare and delicious thus ensuring that she can enjoy the goodness of home-cooked food effortlessly.

New Moon Chilled & Frozen category consists of a wide variety of items, ranging from Chicken products, Wholemeal Buns, Breaded Fish, Shrimp Wantons to Muar Otah. As these products are all convenient to prepare, it allows the busy modern woman to put together a quick and delicious meal for herself and her family.

In November, New Moon Chilled & Frozen items will be launched with bus-stop panels all over the island, showing Jeanette hugging her favourite New Moon Chilled & Frozen items as it appropriately reflects her love for her favourite easy-to-prepare chilled & frozen items. A series of press ads will run in the major Chinese and English newspapers in the month of November highlighting the range of delicious New Moon Chilled & Frozen items.

One of the items Jeanette is hugging is Wholemeal Mini Mantou which comes in 3 flavours, Pumpkin, Brown Rice and Original.
