President of Manufacturing giant, Unilever Nigeria Plc, Mr. Bruno Witvoet, in a recent meeting with the presidency and other top political officers said the company has plans to set up new plants within the country to boost its manufacturing activities in the country.

He also announced that it was already working on a backward integration programme, aimed at 100 per cent local production of needed raw materials for manufacturing.

“We are pleased and very confident to state that we are a Nigerian company and we are here to stay. We have been in the country for 92 years and will be here for another 92 years and more. Our plans for increased investment will also bring about employment opportunities in the country, as workers will be recruited for the new production line, and in the farms for the production and sourcing of local raw materials,” he said.

Speaking at the meeting, Senate President Bukola Saraki said the attempt by the company to source raw material locally would provide ready market for farm produce, adding that it would encourage and empower local farmers to work harder.
