The Chief Executive Officer of the National Toiletries Company, Fomba Trawally, has revealed that the Guinean Government through its Commerce Ministry has accepted to promote his products on the Guinean market.
Making the disclosure over the weekend to the Daily Observer in an interview, Mr. Trawally said it has been his request over the years that his products should be accepted in the Mano River basin.
“We have been sent SOS calls from the Guinean Government to help the company sell it products in that country.
“Just recently they called on me and we had a fruitful discussion where they assured me that they will promote my business,” he said.
Mr. Trawally said his workforce now totaled 160 persons and there are now three production areas to increase production.
He said his 60 percent of his products are sold on the local market, an increase of 30 percent since the company started production.
The company is now producing mineral water, along with materials for sanitation, body, and health.
“Though the ingredients are imported, production is done to suit the local market, and to bring low-cost products for the people,” he said.
Trawally said his major problem, like many other businesses, is the issue of transporting his goods to the leeward counties, which is extremely difficult during the rainy season.
