This brings to four awards the company has grabbed last year after it won the Manufacturing Company of the year (2016) and the most Innovative Brand of the year (2016).
“Our scope is big, and we know that insect-pests are a bane not only in Ghana, but in much of the African continent. As such, we are embarking on a vigorous expansion scheme to be present in all of Sub-Sahara Africa by the close of the year”, Mr. Michael Sjodin, CEO of Inesfly Africa added.
