Hundreds of students from the University of Ghana queued to be served with cooked rice cooked with oil, known locally as “Anwamoo” from Tasty Rice at the athletic oval on the University’s Campus.
It formed part of the campaign for next peaceful elections dubbed #tastyriceanwamoo for peace campaign.
The event saw a lot of activities such as “Tug of War”, “Football Gala”, “Ampe” and a host of others with DJ Phaya treating audience to splendid tunes.
Speaking at the event, the General Manager of Ideal Trade Limited, distributors of Tasty Rice product, Mr. Samuel Darko Gyasi said, “Ghana is approaching elections and every family unites through gathering. We therefore saw the need to bring people together by cooking the latest, delicious and healthy rice product currently on the market to support the peace campaign.
“We at Ideal Trade Limited believe in peace, hence our decision to be a part of this event and also a means to make our product known to Ghanaians as the best rice currently on the Ghanaian market”.
The organizer of the Tasty rice Anwamoo program Victoria Naema also noted “putting together such a competition meant a lot to us”.
She remarked, “We want to feed people with the best. After a thorough search on the market my team and I agreed to use Tasty rice because it stood out when we cooked and tasted it. The affordability also played a pivotal role in the selection”.
“It was even more fulfilling when Ideal Trade Limited decided to support us to make the campaign for peace a reality when we approached them with our intention of such an event, hence our decision to finally change the event tagline to #tastyriceanwamoo for peace.”
There was a mad rush for Tasty rice -which comes in 5kg & 25kg bags- after patrons tasted the product. The event which was characterized by the cooking of the rice, the fun games etc. also created the platform for networking of students and politicians alike.
