pladis, the global biscuit, chocolate and confectionery company, which owns the iconic brands, Godiva, McVitie’s and Ulker, has launched a national consumer promotion in Ghana to celebrate the 125 year anniversary of its much-loved McVitie’s Digestive biscuits which are enjoyed all over the world.

pladis recently announced the consumer promotion at a media launch event held in Accra, Ghana. The McVitie’s Digestive 125 Anniversary promotion which commenced on 20 November 2017 will run for six weeks until 31 December 2017. At the end of the promotional period, a total of three consumers will be selected to win cash prizes – one person will win the grand prize of GH¢ 10,000, another person will win GH¢ 5,000, and the other will also win GH¢ 2,000. In addition, tens of thousands of consumers will win airtime of various denominations – GH¢ 1, GH¢ 2, and GH¢ 5

Commenting on the launch of the campaign to celebrate this key milestone, Mr. Ali Jaber, Managing Director, Sub Saharan Africa said: “From the moment McVitie’s entered Ghana in 1980, almost 40 years ago, the McVitie’s range of biscuits and the original McVitie’s Digestive in particular, has enjoyed a lot of love and support from Ghanaian  consumers. We therefore decided to celebrate our significant 125 year anniversary milestone by running a promotion to reward our consumers who have made McVitie’s Digestive and the McVitie’s brand a great success story in the region.”
