Olam’s Nutrifoods Ghana Limited, the country’s leading manufacturer and marketer of biscuits, has announced the introduction of a new shortbread cookie into its range of popular Perk biscuits brand ahead of the Christmas season.

The new arrival, the Perk Butter Shortbread, is the result of an extensive internal and external consumer research initiative, intended to offer Ghanaian consumers that special sought-after buttery taste in good shortbread cookies, officials at Nutrifoods told journalists at a launch event today.

Category Manager of Perk Biscuits, Mrs. Kabuki Owusu Atakorah said, “Shortbread cookies are generally loved by Ghanaians; that explains why there are quite a number of imported brands on the market. Most people usually wait for special occasions to enjoy a pack of shortbread, but as a leader in the biscuit segment, we at Nutrifoods have decided to respond to the needs of the Ghanaian consumer by producing their favourite cookie locally, so they may enjoy it every day at an affordable price.”

Perk Butter Shortbread joins existing perk biscuit variants like Perk Milk Shortcake, Perk Choco Shortcake, Perk Strawberry Shortcake, and Perk Milkrich cookies on the Ghanaian market.

Mrs. Owusu Atakorah said that “Perk Butter Shortbread offers the consumer an indulgent, buttery and tasty biscuit that easily melts in the mouth”.
