Fake GIHOC products hit consumer markets

Mr Albert Ofosu, Marketing Manager of GIHOC Distilleries, Ghana’s leading producer of alcoholic beverages, has called on Ghanaians to beware of counterfeit and fake products in the market.

Speaking with the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Thursday, Mr Ofosu said a recent market survey by GIHOC has revealed number of fake GIHOC products in various consumer markets of the country.

Mr Ofosu said his outfit had instituted measures to differentiate products of GIHOC distilleries in the market for its loyal customers.

For instance he said: “Consumers should make sure there is a new seal with an engraved logo of GIHOC distilleries on all products before buying for consumption”.

He noted that the company had brought onto the market new products such as ‘G-TOT’ the sachet size, which contains 200ml of Mandingo Herb Afrik and Castle Bridge.

Mr Ofosu said GIHOC Distilleries since its establishment in 1954 had survived the competitive market environment because of hard work.

He called on the government to consider the establishment of a bottle company to help reduce the importation of bottles into the country, stressing that the move would help create jobs for people.

Mr Ofosu appealed to Ghanaians to purchase made in Ghana products and called on manufactures to do proper labeling and packaging of their locally made products in other to improve the performance of the manufacturing sector.
