Promasidor Nigeria Ltd has joined forces with other critical stakeholders in the fight to contain further spread of the deadly Coronavirus with the contribution of over two-hundred and eighty million naira (N280m).
While the food company donated N200million cash for the exclusive purchase of equipment and the setting up of isolation centres required in the nationwide fight against Covid-19 through the Nigeria Private Sector Coalition against Covid-19 (CACOVID), it has also donated some of its quality products worth over Eighty million naira (N80m) to Lagos and Ekiti State Governments, respectively.
Apart from the eighty million naira (N80m) products support, the company has donated milk, beverages, cereals and seasoning products worth N44million in support of the food bank in Lagos State.
Similarly, it has given products worth N34m to Ekiti state even as it gave products worth N5.7 million to Isolo community, a major part of Lagos metropolis that plays host to its operational headquarters.
Speaking on the company gesture during a media chat in Lagos, the Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Anders Einarsson, stated that the palliative was a combination of various initiatives that the company was doing in the form of transformations and food support with the quality food for nutrition that the organisation produces.
“Promasidor’s intervention in the support of the Covid-19 crisis that we are facing in Nigeria is a threefold intervention strategy: it comes in form of cash contribution to the tune of N200million that we are contributing to the CACOVID initiative for a nationwide reach.
“We are also intervening in the form of food support to the people in dire need of food, and that is being distributed across three key initiatives. We are giving food support to Lagos and Ekiti States, as well as food support to the Isolo community in Lagos,” he said.
