The best wholesalers across the country, the Sales Manager disclosed would qualify to enter a draw for a chance to have a vacation somewhere beyond Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
Mr Nicholas Donkor, a wholesaler with Wilmar Africa said it was encouraging to see their supplier think of plans to reward them for the work they do
He noted wholesalers have had tough times since the outbreak of Covid-19 but was positive that this promotion will turn their fortunes around as they are determined to sell more of the products available.
Madam Abigail from Ohwimase said she was beneficiary of the third Wilmar Africa promotion that sent some wholesalers to Dubai.
She disclosed she also had 10, 000 cedis to spend.
Wilmar Africa plans to conduct road shows and food tours across the country to publicise the promotion and to ensure consumers become more aware of tbe quality products they have to offer on the market.
