Meatco has donated 25 000 tins of corned beef to be distributed amongst Namibians that have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Meatco CEO, Mushokabanji Mwilima the distribution of the corned beef will be left in the hands of the Regional Council who will oversee the distribution of the parcels to those who need them most.
“Meatco will remain pragmatic during this time of need, I don’t want to go in too much detail for now. I just want to reiterate our willingness to assist however little; we are assisting our fellow Namibians/human beings with some form of sustenance for the period of lockdown from Meatco and Namibia,” he said.
Meatco entered the canned corned beef market in 1964 with its square-canned, Texan, Eloolo and Ranch brands and these brands are sold in the Namibian, South African, and West Africa markets.
“Our Vision is to have the most sought-after meat brands in the selected markets in the long term interests of our stakeholders, the Meatco CEO said.
