Speaking during the courtesy call, the Corporate Relations Director of Guinness Ghana Breweries PLC said;
“As a company, we dedicate a significant amount of resources to improving the growth of our suppliers and customers. Through our local raw material sourcing program, the livelihoods of over 12,000 farmers and their families have been impacted with 55% of our raw materials being sourced from them. A significant number of our products are produced using raw materials sourced locally from Ghanaian farmers which we continue to increase in the volumes up-take ”
“We are equally excited about our renewed commitment to boost customers’ profitability with the launch of a loyalty program for our key wholesalers, retailers and distributors across the country. Dubbed “Yɛn Nyin Mbom”, which means ‘let’s grow together’, the loyalty program will reward customers with outstanding sales performance and innovative ways that ensure products reach consumers”, the Corporate Relations Director added.
In his remarks, the Minister of Business Development welcomed the delegation and lauded GGBPLC for their remarkable contributions to Ghana’s development over the years.
