GB Foods – the producers of Gino and Pomo range of products have donated to the Kumasi Central Mosque in the Ashanti Region.
The donation coincided with the celebration by Muslims worldwide of Eid Al-Adha, the holiest festival in the Islamic calendar.
The yearly ritual is considered a time to think of others as well as repenting for sins committed in the past.
The Festival of Sacrifice marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage, where Muslims return from pilgrimage in Mecca.[ads1]
Muslims will sacrifice goats, sheep, lambs, and cows to represent Ibrahim’s commitment to God, where Allah came to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son Isma’il as an act of obedience to God.
Participation in the sacrificial festival is mandatory for all obedient Muslims that can afford an animal.
As part of their corporate social responsibility, GB Foods donated product like Gino Max, Shrimps Brisk Farm tomatoe mix, Gino Mackerel, Gino Tomatoe, Gino Rice among others to the Kumasi central Mosque through astute businessman Herbert Mensah to enhance the celebration of the Eid Al-Adha.
The former Kumasi chairman topped the donation up with an undisclosed amount as his support towards the Eid-ul-Adha celebration which marks the end of the Pilgrimage by Muslims worldwide.
Presenting the items on behalf of Mr Hebert Mensah were King Edward of Hello FM in Kumasi, Prince Osei Sarpong (Baba Yara) of Kessben Media and the Northern Sector Regional Sales Manager of GB Foods, Roger Nii Offei Chinery.
The Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun who received these items on behalf of all Muslims at the Kumasi Central Mosque expressed his excitement and appreciation to Mr Hebert Mensah and GB Foods and thanked them for the honor done them.
