As part of efforts towards repositioning Nigeria in the world map of industrialization and strengthening their leading position in the foods processing industry, Erisco Foods Limited has introduced three innovative products into the Nigerian market. The products include the new improved natural Erisco, Ric-giko and Nagiko brands of tomato paste, Nagiko 3in1 Garri mix (first of its kind) and Erisco milk cubes.
While speaking at the event, which held at the corporate headquarters of Erisco Foods Limited in Lagos, President/Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Chief Eric Umeofia, called on Nigerians to always patronise ‘made-in-Nigeria’ products to grow the economy.
He said, “The new improved natural Erisco, Ric-giko and Nagiko brand of tomato paste that is wholly made in Nigeria were creatively designed and produced to curb the incessant health challenges experienced by Nigerians as a result of the consumption of sub-standard tomato paste imported into the country from China.
The highlight of the event was the unveiling of Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha as the Brand Ambassador of Erisco Foods Limited to which the Executive Director Operations of Erisco Foods Limited, Mr. Nnamdi Umeofia, described as perfect choice taking into consideration her pedigree, good reputation, good family values and hard work which she will bring to bear to positively influence Nigerians to always believe and patronise ‘made-in-Nigeria’ products to aid Nigeria’s industrial development.
