George Eremionkhale, Managing Director of Dansa Foods, Expands Into New Markets in African Business Review

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2011) - Although Dansa Foods is a fairly young company, an African Business Review interview reveals an impressive portfolio of products.

Dansa Foods is an indigenous Nigerian company and operates within the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry. Part of the Dangote Group -- the largest manufacturing conglomerate in Nigeria -- Dansa Foods started commercial production in 2006 with its Tetrapack line. However, Dansa's product line has expanded dramatically since then and now offers consumers a range of fruit juices, carbonated soft drinks , dairy products and bottled water.

"We are a young company but in this short period, we have been able to get our local brands into every household in Nigeria," says Managing Director George Eremionkhale who has 25 years experience in the beverage industry. "We are the only company to have this full range of non-alcoholic beverages in Nigeria. We are flexible and able to make quick decisions as well as driving innovation in terms of products and packaging."

Africa's growing economy and Nigeria's investment potential has not gone unnoticed by Dansa. Eremionkhale firmly believes that with a population of more than 140 million people, Dansa will be able to satisfy the customer's growing needs.

"In five years, I see us extending our lines to have a lot more packages and products in relation to consumer preferences. We want to take advantage of our online social network so customers can interact with us," says Eremionkhale.
