Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo has inaugurated three manufacturing plants established by Unilever Ghana Ltd. Being one of Ghana's leading fast-moving consumer goods company, Unilever has commissioned three new plants at its factory site in Tema.
The aim of Unilever Ghana Ltd. is to expand the business across Ghana and ensure continuous production of quality products for the market. The three new plants (The Personal Care Dryer, Biomass boiler and Orals factory) are said to be environmentally-friendly and part of Unilever Ghana Ltd.'s commitment to ensuring sustainable business practices. At the inauguration ceremony, the Head of State Nana Akufo-Addo commended the Accra-headquartered for its continued and impressive presence in the country. He reminded the audience that the company had partnered the state to spur economic growth. He urged multinational companies operating in Ghana to bring their capabilities to bear on national growth, especially by sourcing their raw materials locally, Graphic Online noted.
"I am excited by Unilever's decision to bring onshore its operational capabilities into the country and to continue to source locally its raw material base," he added.
"We have something we call the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. In that plan, we look to make sure that we provide our customers with good quality products at what we believe are acceptable prices. We look to make sure that our impact on the environment is reduced and we look to improve livelihoods. For us, this commissioning is part of the three and most importantly our environmental impact is what we are most excited about," Unilever Ghana's Managing Director Gladys Amoah said.
