Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Leading producer of noodles, Indomie has rolled out a set of

activities to complement efforts to keep the country clean.

It has identified a number of institutions that it is supporting with

bins and other resources to ensure that their environment stays clean.

The President of Ghana has instituted a National Sanitation Day, which

is the first Saturday of every month, a campaign that began last


That day has been set aside to undertake cleaning throughout the

country in both public and private places.

While the cleanup will ensure the environment is cleaned after the

exercise, indiscriminate littering could make the various cities,

towns and villages dirty by the next day. Sensing this challenge, the

local brand representatives of Indomie Noodles in Ghana, Multi-Pro

Private ltd, has decided to provide litter bins to various

institutions to collect waste, to discourage the public form resorting

to littering.

Speaking in an interview, the General Manager of Multi-Pro Private

Ltd, Girish Sharma said Indomie was making available a number of

litter bins at various basic schools, universities, markets, lorry

parks and hospitals. He said a team from the company will visit these

institutions where the bins will be presented to them.

Mr. Sharma noted the many lives that were lost and the number of

people who ended up at hospitals during the devastating cholera

outbreak this year. He said as a brand which is in the food sector,

they were very concerned about people eating contaminated food and

therefore decided to support the sanitation campaign.

"The health of the people is important and we can't toy with it, and

so we want to make as much resources available to ensure a cleaner

Ghana". Mr. Sharma explained.

Indomie is the leading noodles brand in Ghana and globally and has

over the years been embarking on various programmes to support

society. The distribution of bins is just one the activities that the

company will undertake before the end of the year.

The Brands Manager, Shine Torsoo indicated that the presentation of

the bins, will be accompanied with public education to ensure that the

beneficiaries appreciate the importance of keeping the environment

clean and put the bins to proper use. He was unhappy about instances

where people either steal these bins or refuse to use them of the

intended purposes.

He said the beneficiaries will be told not to misapply the bins,

adding that "our team will revisit these institutions to find out if

the bins are being appropriately used.

Mr. Torsoo indicated that Indomie will also work closely with various

local assemblies to see how they can continue to support them in the

campaign to keep the country clean.

He said the National Sanitation Day campaign was laudable and

encouraged the public to fully participate in subsequent programmes.

Mr. Sharma on his part said the company as an entity, will be active

in such cleanup activities while individual staff will be encouraged

and allowed to fully participate in the cleaning campaigns.
