Bemoaning the unstable exchange rates and inflation which were never friendly to business activities during the year under review, he, however, applauded the distributors for still being there for one of the nation’s leading dairy manufacturers.
Ku said: The year 2014 was a very remarkable year. It was a year we experienced many difficulties and challenges like increased prices in raw materials and also experienced low sales, but with your joint efforts we went through the year successfully with a good report.”
He continued: “In 2014, the company was able to successfully introduce into the market 210ml banana, wheat milk drinks and Mr. V Premium water and the water brand made wave. We were able to sell 200,000 cartoons in less than three months of its introduction to the market. We believe with efforts of our esteemed distributors, in 2015, Mr. V Premium water will become a household brand like Viju milk.”
Also speaking, the Marketing Manager, Mr. Suleiman Aliu, sought more support of the distributors to consolidate the company’s market share in the new year.
