Nutricima takes healthy nutrition message to Lagos primary schools


Dairy and beverage maker, Nutricima Limited is offering students in Lagos State the opportunity to taste the nourishing values of two of its products, Nunu and Bliss in a school-wide campaign featuring about 6,000 children in 10 nursery and primary schools.

Ten pupils will win N10, 000 each through an essay competition among the schools.

Officials of Nutricima Limited kicked off the initiative recently with visits to schools in the Ikeja Local Government area. Schools visited include Chrisland International at Opebi, St. Leo’s Catholic School, GophawoodSchoo, Omoleye Children’s School and Salvation International School. Others include Hallmark School, Agidingbi, Tunwase School and Future Kids.

During the visits, officials share information on nutrition as well as hand product samples of Bliss Choco and NunuChoca Malt to the pupils.

The school sampling initiative is one in a series of events the company has embarked on in the couple of years as it strives to promote an all-round healthy populace.

It would be recalled the company for some months in 2012 held a Healthy Living Campaign on the platform of Yo! Yoghurt Drinks in select communities as part of efforts aimed at sensitizing residents of Lagos State to the health benefits of simple but oft-forgotten routines.

Also, Nutricima in 2012 held the maiden Community Games powered by Olympic Milk that featured 10 local government areas of Lagos State among which include Mushin, Ajegunle, Obalende, Oshodi, Bariga, Surulere, Ikorodu, Agege, Ketu and OrileIganmu. The Community Games featured three sports of football, table tennis and draught.

Nutricima Limited commenced business in Nigeria in 2005 with manufacturing facilities in Ikorodu, Lagos. It produces and markets high-end nutritious dairy and non-dairy beverages like Nunu, Coast and Olympic milk, Bliss ice teas and fruit milks and Yo! yoghurt drinks. Nutricima Limited is a PZ Cussons company.
