Milagro scratch and win Company rewards winner
Accra, Dec. 16, GNA - Ghana has the potential of competing with the world's leading palm oil producing countries if her palm plantation sector is well exploited and backed with relevant technology, Mr. Vanish Bandar, Head of Consumer Products, Pacific Inter Link, Malaysia, an international manufacturing firm, has said.
Mr. Bhandari said Ghana had a lot of palm plantations and the fruits sometimes went waste because they were not utilized.
According to him countries like Indonesia and Malaysia picked up the palm fruits from Ghana and with technology they had become the world's largest exporting countries.
He said this when his company and Tag Investment Limited Ghana, a distribution firm, presented a Toyota Corolla car to Nana Kodjo Daniel Darah, the ultimate Winner of the "Milagros Scratch and Win" prize at a ceremony in Accra.
Other winners took home 59 television sets including four flat screens, 75 mobile phones as well as 40 DVDs.
Pacific Inter Link Malaysia and Tag Investment also gave out consolation prizes to the distributors of Milgro Full Cream Powder.
Mr Bhandari called on government to take a second look at the use of technology in the cultivation, harvesting and processing of palm fruits so that the palm plantations are fully utilized.
On the awards Mr. Bhandari said after the launch of Milgro full cream powered milk in Ghana three years ago, it had been able to cater for the needs of mothers who wanted to ensure that their children and families received the best and most nutritious milk powder.
He said his company, which exported products to over 50 global markets, had set up an office in Ghana.
Mr. Bhandari said his company intended to venture into palm plantation in Ghana but added they would first carry out an exploration.
Mr. Pankaj Gupta, Senior Marketing Manager, Pacific Inter Link, promised consumers more exciting prizes in the coming year.
Mr. Darah, a storekeeper at Okaishie in Accra, said he was happy for emerging as the winner.
He said he bought four tins of Milgro and after scratching them found out that he had won a car.
