Avnash Industries Ghana Limited, an agro-industrial processing company, has introduced Lafia – its second brand of vegetable cooking oil, with rich nutritional properties for healthy food preparation for all.

The product, Lafia, is available in 25Litre jerry-cans only and suitable for offering best value to bulk oil users in cooking assorted food items.

A refined, deodorised Palm oil fortified with vitamin A, Lafia brand has been processed and packaged while adhering to international quality control standards.

Manufacturer of the products, Avnash, explained that the company developed the vegetable cooking oil to ensure healthy lifestyles for the Ghanaian population, and to make cooking exciting as consumers enjoy the benefits of a quality product that has all nutritional properties incorporated during the manufacturing process.

With the tag-line ‘Happy Times’, Lafia is expected to make inroads into every home in the country – more especially in the three northern regions of the country. The cooking oil is locally manufactured at the 500mt per day capacity edible oil refinery located near the Tema Harbour.

“Avnash is introducing this brand strategically in the three regions of Northern Ghana. The product is available for sale in Tamale, Bolgatanga, Wa and the rest of the key towns of the Northern Ghana in two weeks as the company embarks on a roadshow to introduce the brand to consumers and educate them on the need to patronise Ghana Made products and the health benefits of using wholesome and quality edible oil products,” said the Head of Marketing-Avnash, David Adikah.

This product, he explained, is specially refined and packaged for the good people in the savannah-belt of the country. This resonates with the message of ‘This is Our Own’.

The selection of the Green jerry-can to identify with the colour of the savannah region of Ghana, which is where Lafia is exclusively available for sale “and has been widely-accepted by all”.

Mr. Adikah indicated that the product is being produced with the same ingredients of high nutritional properties and will have the same quality as the company’s flagship product ‘Golden Drop Vegetable Cooking oil’.

He indicated that the product is produced under hygienic conditions as the Avnash oil refinery is ISO 22000 certified. He also added that products are made with adherence to the tenets of Halal, saying that Avnash is in the process of acquiring halal certification for its products.

“We intend to club Golden Drop Consumer packs with the Lafia Bulk pack; it is important for us to ride on the wide acceptance currently gained by Golden Drop Cooking Oil among the Ghanaian consuming public,” he said.

“Our local knowledge, long-standing experience in the manufacturing industry, and network of partners have enabled the company to translate local and quality raw materials into both value-chain growth and top-consumer satisfaction. Our current product-offerings are Golden Drop and Lafia vegetable cooking oil, produced at our 500mt per day oil refinery in Tema.

“Oly soap provides the consuming public with laundry and natural bathing soaps manufactured in our 100mt per day Soap saponification plant located in the Tema Free Zones enclave. The soap plant currently runs a 2-tonne per hour finishing line,” he said.

Avnash Industries Ghana Limited, incorporated in 2001, has grown become a major leading brand – premising its rise on key investments in refining palm oil and soap manufacturing, located in Tema.
The company’s rice-mill located in Nyankpala is a state of the art facility, with the capacity to process 500 metric tonnes of paddy rice per day.

It is the first of its kind in the country to operate an environmentally-friendly boiler unit powered by the waste products of the milling process, bolstering its position as a steward of social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
