“Mamador would like to press forward with its penchant for revitalising every woman and her home by providing them with healthy cooking options and as a result, ensuring a healthy lifestyle.

This is why Mamador has over the years stayed committed to partnering and supporting women empowerment programmes within the different August Meetings across various communities, and we hope to sustain this blooming partnership,” she said.
Mamador, through its products, Mamador cooking oil and margarine, offered the gatherings tasty meals as well as fun activities, including cooking, eating and dancing competitions, free health checks and counselling from medical professionals. Participants were also rewarded with gift items of various cooking utensils, among other takeaways.
