West African Sea­son­ing Com­pany Lim­ited, an af­fil­i­ate of the AJI­NOMOTO Group; a Global food gi­ant and mak­ers of Aji-no-moto Umami Sea­son­ing, is mak­ing ef­forts to im­prove nu­tri­tion in Nige­ria by ex­pand­ing its busi­ness oper­a­tions in food prod­ucts in the South-west geo-po­lit­i­cal zone.

The Ja­panese com­pany which aims to be a top-ten global food com­pany by 2020, said the ex­pan­sion would en­able it pro­vide the most de­li­cious and whole­some foods to the peo­ple in the area.

Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of the com­pany, Mr. Niki Ju­nichi dis­closed this in Oshogbo re­cently when the man­age­ment of the com­pany paid a cour­tesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adey­eye Ogun­wusi, as part of the man­age­ment’s on­go­ing ef­fort to re­po­si­tion Aji-no-moto® in the coun­try.

Ju­nichi noted that the com­pany is com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing more value for the so­ci­ety, adding that Aji­nomoto has been in ex­is­tence for over 100 years.

Ac­cord­ing to him, Ajino-moto® Umami sea­son­ing has been safely used as food in­gre­di­ent since 1909.

“We are pro­vid­ing high­qual­ity, safe, and re­li­able prod­ucts to our cus­tomers.

We want them to eat well and live well. Our ex­pan­sion no doubt, will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the lives of the peo­ple. Our plans for in­creased in­vest­ment will also bring about em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the coun­try.

“At present our prod­ucts are sold in over 130 coun­tries and re­gions, and we have plans to both ex­pand to new mar­kets and fur­ther broaden our prod­uct line­ups”, he said.

In his response, Oba Ogun­wusi com­mended the man­age­ment of West African Sea­son­ing Com­pany Lim­ited, for the com­pany’s laud­able con­tri­bu­tions to Nige­ria’s econ­omy over the years.

The Ooni pledged his sup­port for the re­launch of Aji­nomoto sea­son­ing prod­uct in the South-west, while urg­ing the man­age­ment to key into the var­i­ous rich cul­tural fes­ti­vals in Yoruba land to reach its tar­get au­di­ence.

“We will give you the nec­es­sary sup­port that you need. You have started well by com­ing to the king­dom of Ife where ev­ery­body in the south­ern part of the coun­try came from.
