Popular Foods West Africa (PFWA) of Unilever launched Annapurna Iodised salt in 2000. Since then Annapurna has been at the fore front of promoting the use of iodised salt in Ghana. The advent of Annapurna onto the market has changed the way salt is marketed and used in Ghana.
Unilever Ghana launched Annapurna Iodised Salt as a contribution towards the fight against Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD). It was to help bring good health to children and contribute to the renewal of the human resource base of the country.
Since its launch in 2000, Annapurna has been involved in a number of social programs. The brand was a partner to the government in the recent National Birth Registration campaign. It has been involved in a number of IDD awareness programmes throughout the country.
Currently, Annapurna Iodised Salt sells in three pack sizes namely a 100g and 250g sachets.
