  • UAC Foods Unveils New Brand Sausage Roll

UAC Foods Limited – a leading manufacturer and marketer of tasty and nourishing convenience foods in Nigeria, has unveiled to the public Gala Mega – a brand new addition to their rich basketful of Snacks offerings in a colourful ceremony held at their office in Ojota, Lagos.

Gala Mega, as the name implies, is a larger sized Sausage Roll with the same trusted and satisfying Gala taste, but in a bigger, meatier and more filing size to meet the yearnings of Consumers, who want to be easily filled up on a friendly budget.

General Manager -Marketing of UAC Foods Limited, Mrs. Joan Ihekwaba who unveiled the Gala Mega at the ceremony alongside other invited high dignitaries, said Gala Mega is a product of direct response to the yearnings and desires of Gala Consumers for a more filling Snack to keep them going as they achieve their daily goals.

She said having pioneered the Sausage Roll market way back in 1962, Gala Sausage Roll has kept faith with Nigerians by holding the N50 price point for 10 years and with the new offering, which will in no way hamper the availability of the regular Gala Sausage Roll at 50 naira retail price, UAC Foods is once again setting the pace in the Sausage Roll Industry with a new pack size.

“For over 5 decades, the Gala brand has believed in/ identified with the Nigerian story, a story of perseverance, strong will, and a passion that never gives up. Today the launch of Gala Mega is reassurance UFL’s commitment to Keep You Going. A stronger devotion to walk you through your success story.

“The new brand is an addition to existing variants of the Gala Brand, which include regular Gala Sausage Roll, Mini Gala, Gala Chicken and Gala Cocktail. The regular Gala Sausage Roll is still available at N50,” she said.

Mrs. Ihekwaba revealed that Gala Mega is the first Sausage Roll in Nigeria to include micronutrients for the health and nutrition of its Consumers and that the product is greatly enriched with vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, Iron, Folic acid and Iodine, as well as Vitamin B1 and B2, which is prepared from pure beef filling and rich pastry.

She said there couldn’t have been a better time for UAC Foods Limited to introduce Gala Mega into the market than now given the prevailing economic situation in the country, where Nigerians want a truly filling sized Sausage Roll at a pocket friendly price to fit their upwardly mobile lifestyle.

The new brand is available all over the country at a retail price of N100 and the pack is differentiated with a touch of green and the word ‘Mega’ inscribed on the primary packaging.

“If you are a Lagos based business and your store got looted/vandalized this week, please fill this form by @LSETF Let’s do what we can to support you,” he tweeted.

This was after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said the state had activated the process of healing the destruction and massacre that happened earlier in the week when security operatives in army uniforms opened fire on armless #EndSARS protesters.

Sanwo-Olu said, “My heart bled after I went out today for a first-hand assessment of the destruction of assets of the Government and private properties. The level of destruction observed indicated that the violence was more than just a peaceful protest and agitations for police reforms. The proportion of devastation is a lot. This is not the Lagos that was handed over to me on May 29, 2019.

“Moving forward from the destruction, we have to continue the process of healing ourselves. We need to stop some of our citizens still using social media to instigate or incite the people. It will not be under my watch that we will lose the city that has the largest economy in the entire black nation. Enough is enough. I have moved around and I saw that our people want peace. On this, we are committed to bringing lasting peace back to the State.
