In contributing to a healthier environment, he noted that the firm is investing to reduce impact on the environment by using recycled plastic and packaging. He also noted that they are taking measures to mitigate the prevalence of fake BIC products in the country.
We pride ourselves with our constantly growing operation and our impact on local communities, contributing towards the country’s socio-economic development. We look forward to further growth and investment in Nigeria,” he said.
