By Dipo Olowookere

Dealers of WACOT Limited, a member of the TGI Group, has rewarded some of its top dealers across the country for their patronage.

This is part of the company’s commitment to engaging and adding value to its stakeholders. It was gathered that the firm recently engaged the dealers during its first Dealers Meet held in four locations across the country.

The last of the four-part meetings was held in Central Hotel Kano, on Thursday, April 19, 2018. The first three which were held in Ibadan, Abuja, and Gombe in the preceding weeks, was a gathering of the company’s Agro-Inputs dealers, who stated that the quality and performance of WACOT’s products in the market is the major reason why they deal with WACOT.

The rewards for the dealers in various categories ranged from motorcycles, television sets, refrigerators to a brand new car for the grand prize. In Gombe, due to a tie in the performance, two grand prizes were given out.

Speaking at the meeting in Kano, Mr Sadiq Kassim, GM Corporate Affairs, TGI Group (parent company of WACOT) said: “We pride ourselves in being able to engage our stakeholders at every level, and our dealers are not left out of this. While the rewards are a way of us giving back to them and encouraging them, the joy for us is being able to sit in a room with them to hear directly from them how our products are doing in the market, and ways in which they want us to improve”.

The company also used the opportunity to introduce the revamped packaging of all its products which now have a more pronounced outlook for easier brand recognition, and unveil the redesigned VINASH, the company’s flagship agro-chemical which is a household name among Nigerian farmers.

Commenting at the launch, the MD of WACOT, Mr Ujwal Senapati, reiterated the company’s commitment to delivering only quality inputs saying “our goal is to make the packages more user-friendly, tamper-proof and easy to identify, especially in a market where counterfeiting is rife. More importantly, our strategy is to brand and promote the products in such a way that it makes sales easier for our dealers.”

“We are also using this opportunity to recognize our sales team in our branches across the nation. Without them, none of these would have been possible. Our people are our biggest assets and we will continue to appreciate their efforts in every way we can,” added Mr Senapati.

LASCOPA Seals Bazaar Supermarket Over Flagrant Disobedience

Bazaar Supermarket

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

For flagrant disobedience to a lawful directive from a government agency, the outlet of Bazaar Supermarket on Aromire Street, Ikeja, Lagos has been sealed.

The retail store was closed down on Tuesday by officials of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA).

A statement issued by the agency explained that the company displayed some items on its shelves with inadequate information like the date of production, expiration and manufacturer’s details.

According to the General Manager of LASCOPA, Mr Afolabi Solebo, during a routine visit to the place on February 24, 2021, some Croaker Steak, Checkerboard Cookies, Peanut Butter and Prawns were found not to have the above details and the management was told to remove them to protect consumers’ rights.

He said this was part of the efforts of the state government to rid the metropolis of all forms of unwholesome products.

However, he lamented that after another visit to the supermarket, the items were still on display for unsuspecting customers to purchase, insisting that such products would not be removed from their shelves until after 21 days.

This infuriated the agency, which sealed the facility, stressing that the era of selling hazardous products to the public without useful information to protect consumers was over.

The GM of LASCOPA said his agency would not fail to initiate litigation if retail shops and supermarkets do not display product information on their commodities.

While charging consumers not to hesitate to report any supermarket or shops within the state where such products are sold, he enjoined residents to always ensure to check the information contained on the label of items about to be purchased.

Mr Solebo, therefore, implored all members of the public to submit their complaints about any infractions on purchased products or services in its office at 2b, Soji Adepegba Close, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja or send correspondence to the agency’s e-mail addresses: lascopa@lagosstate.gov.ng and lascopa@gmail.com for necessary action.

Recall that last week, LASCOPA sealed Home Affairs Supermarket in the Ogba area of Lagos State for allegedly displaying expired goods on its shelves.

In reality, not everyone’s endowed with the long, thick lash line. Similar to makeup is employed to reinforce your options; false eyelashes are accustomed to creating your eyes look sound.

There are such a big amount of brands and kinds of eyelashes obtainable within the market, it may be confusing finding the proper one for you. Material, shape, thickness, and length are vital factors to stay in mind once shopping for falsies. So, eyelashes boxes can enhance the outlook of items.

Types of Eyelashes:

For convenience and to own an improved understanding, I’ve classified eyelash boxes into 3 main sorts.

  • Strip Lashes Boxes: These are the common kind of eyelashes boxes we’re acquainted with; within the type of a strip. They’ll be applied to your natural lash line with a skin-friendly adhesive. Except for some individuals, these may be a bit significant and tough to wear particularly for extended durations.
  • Individual Flare Boxes: These are available tiny clusters that may be adjusted among natural cilia in custom eyelash boxes. They’re conjointly applied with adhesive and are comparatively more leisurely to wear. They conjointly look additional natural and don’t place a lot of strain on the eyes.
  • Individual Single Boxes: These are available in tiny parts, simply 2 or 3 lashes. They are adjusted among natural eyelashes and provides the foremost realistic look. If you would like to wear them while not creating it obvious, this is for you. In my expertise, these are in all probability the foremost comfy to wear for extended durations. You don’t even feel you’re carrying some foreign in your lashes.

Materials:

False eyelashes have to return an extended means since their dawn. At first, it had been simply artificial lashes that were very uncomfortable to wear; some individuals were even allergic to those artificial materials.

No smart makeup whole makes these low-cost synthetics any longer. There are unit four main materials used for creating falsies. Silk eyelashes are artificial; they’re soft and have a luscious feel to the touch.

These are the most affordable kind you’ll be able to realize lately. They are available within the strip, flare, and individual hair type. These lashes aren’t ideal for carrying for extended durations.

Real mink lashes return from the fur of Siberian or Chinese mink. These are harvested from farm-bred minks. These are soft, fluffy, and comfy to wear. I in person don’t like carrying these as a result of, albeit firms claim that minks aren’t injured throughout the gathering, no living being deserves to be treated sort of goods. However, would companies tend to feel if a large unbroken

These boxes are visually enticing for the customers for retailers, it’s vital to point outputting and appealing things significantly if there ought to be a happening of restorative things since people like to purchase attractive things.

To create the business proportion of eyelashes they have seductive packaging for show. To form your eyelashes additional seductive and engaging before customers, you have got to gift them in a very putting approach. Custom prints and plans build a packaging appearance all the additional putting and eye-getting for purchasers initially sight.

Different Patterns:

By victimization enticing colour patterns, designs, styles, and layout on these boxes, you’ll grab the eye of the shoppers to a larger extent than before.

A solid client provides high-quality eco-friendly boxes for shipping and shows functions to the Lash Vendors out there. Sturdy and durable material proof against environmental factors is most popular to use whereas the aim is to ship the things, particularly at the customer’s place.

These boxes for shipping purposes have all the mandatory details written on them relating to the cargo and products themselves.
They usually are available custom-built boxes that do not solely draw the eye of girls however conjointly defend the eyelashes.

Companies tend to build these boxes in numerous designs and shapes to modify your show eyelashes appealingly to your potential customers.

Everyone must have seductive and marvellous Eyelashes to form them look partaking. Several individuals either girls or men haven’t got thick eyelashes so that they would like artificial ones to form their eye appearance higher.

As Eyelashes are delicate and touchy cosmetics parts, they have uncommon security to abstain from any disintegrating and collapsing packaging has quality in business sectors to defend artificial eyelashes from any hurt so, eyelashes boxes are created and planned according to fashion.

By Dipo Olowookere

One of the retail stores in the Ogba axis of Lagos State, Home Affairs Supermarket tucked on 21, Ijaye Road, has been sealed by officials of the Lagos State government.

The place was shut down on Thursday for allegedly displaying some expired products for sale to unsuspecting members of the public.

The General Manager of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA), Mr Afolabi Solebo, explained that the agency took the action as part of efforts to rid the metropolis of all forms of unwholesome products and ensure that consumers’ rights are protected.

According to him, when LASCOPA arrived at the supermarket, it found on its shelves some expired products such as Kelloggs Krave (Chocolate Hazelnut) and frozen foods.

Mr Solebo lamented that despite several public enlightenment campaigns and warnings by LASCOPA, store managers still sell expired and hazardous products which are inimical to human health in contravention of the state government’s directives on the sale of unwholesome goods.

“I personally discovered the expired items on the supermarket shelves on February 23, 2021, while on a routine check of supermarkets in the area.

“On discovering the expired products, I told the staff to remove the items from the shelves, which they did in my presence, only for the monitoring and enforcement team to [later] go there and discovered that the items have been returned to the promo shelf,” the General Manager of the agency said.

He noted that LASCOPA had to seal Home Affairs Supermarket in the interest of the general consumers in the state, adding that the organisation will not fail to initiate litigation if retail shops and supermarkets do not stop displaying expired products for sale.

While charging consumers not to hesitate to report any supermarket or shops within the state where expired products are sold, he enjoined residents to submit their complaints free of charge by visiting the office of LASCOPA at 2b, Soji Adepegba Close, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, or send correspondence to the agency’s e-mail addresses: lascopa@lagosstate.gov.ng and lascopa@gmail.com for necessary action.

Iyayi Redefines Nigeria’s Media Buying Industry With AdTraders

Published

Elo Iyayi AdTraders Media Limited

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The media buying industry in Nigeria will soon witness a transformation with the birth of AdTraders, founded by a respected name in the advertising sector, Ms Elo Iyayi.

Ms Iyayi started her career in advertising in 2004 and worked with notable firms like McCann Erikson, Lowe Lintas Lagos, 141Worldwide, Leo Burnett Lagos and SHAREMIND Lagos.

During this period, she managed accounts of big brands like Nigerian Breweries Plc, British Airways, Unilever Nigeria Plc, where she lent her expertise to well known and loved brands like Close-Up, Knorr, Lipton and Omo, as well as Hayat Kimya, custodians of Molfix, Bebem, Familia and Papia.

She further worked with British American Tobacco (Dunhill, Benson & Hedges, Pall Mall and Craven), as well as Philip Morris- Malboro and Chesterfield.

After working with these brands, she felt there was still a gap somewhere, which inspired her to set up AdTraders and according to her, no one could have anticipated the effect of COVID-19 on an already fragmented audience.

She said even advertisers, who anticipated the decline of TV’s power in the wake of the internet, must be aghast at the impact of streaming channels and podcasts, while less time in the car and office has made significant inroads into radio’s listenership.

Ms Iyayi submitted that such innovation can create havoc for an advertiser or with the right media buying partner by their side, it can create enormous opportunity.

This is why it makes sense to join forces with AdTraders; an agency with the flexibility and foresight to adapt to this ever-changing landscape, she stated.

The industry expert explained that AdTraders’ approach is a long-term one as the agency strives to nurture relationships rooted in a thorough understanding of the brand, its goals and aspirations, so that – through ongoing measurement and a data-driven response – the agency is able to adjust strategies in order to achieve optimal effectiveness.

Ms Iyayi believes that the flux to the media landscape is currently experiencing is just the beginning. Going forward, it is inevitable that the trends that defined innovation today will be forgotten by tomorrow. This is why AdTraders focuses on helping brands get to grips with what may come to be, rather than what is.”

Therefore, in line with this, the agency works non-stop to create real value. This is achieved thanks to the input of a highly experienced team of negotiators, skilled at creating deal structures that make media spend work harder for clients.

Added to this, the team is well-versed in the pros and cons of all media touchpoints, objectively identifying that which offers the most cost-effective buy for clients, she said.

She assured that AdTraders brings a fresh perspective that turns its back on the staid and irrelevant, helping clients to plug into a new type of consumer living in a new type of environment.
