Accra, Sept. 5, GNA – PZ Cussons Ghana, a leading producer and distributor of personal and homecare products, has signed an agreement with the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) in Accra, to signify GMA’s endorsement of the Camel brand.

Mr Afflu said the endorsement of the Camel brand was in fulfilment of the mutual relationship between both institutions, which spanned over seven years.

He gave the assurance that the Association would continue to provide the needed support to promote the Camel and Carex brands and ensure Ghanaians got value for their money.
