Skel Rice

Skel Skul Moni Promotion ends

There were 220 winners across the country who shared prize money to the total value of K308,000.

“This annual promotion is to reward our loyal SKEL Rice consumers,” said Brand Manager Nancy Inai.

“This year we changed our approach with tiered prize money, 55 fortnightly winners out of four fortnightly draws. Consumers had the chance to win K3,000, K2,000, K1,000 and consolation prizes of K500,” Inai added.

Tru Warrior's Struggle

However, in the last two years was very challenging like any other Small to Medium Enterprises, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the lockdowns imposed on sports venues where they normally hold their activities, the SME lost business as no activities were allowed in those venues.

Co-owner of the SME, Tama Kami said the renewal of their support by Goodman Fielders International is great in order to keep their business alive, they had to look for other venues and downscale their business.

Goodman Fielder Renews Partnerships

This falls under the brand’s Healthy Living and Empowerment pillar. Tru Warrior established in 2012, owned by Tala and Tomasi Kami have maintained a 10-year operation with the continued support of SKEL RICE in previous years with events such as the SKEL RICE Stadium Challenge and the monthly boxing competitions.

Rugby 7s Tournament Gets Support

The supported was extended to 36 rugby teams from New Ireland Province who will converge in Kavieng to participate in the Douglas Guise Rugby 7s Cup in Kavieng from the 16th to 18th of September.

Nancy Inai, Skel Rice Brand Manager said: “An emphasis is placed on encouraging healthy living and active lifestyle within the community.

She also said: “Sport contributes to the positive development of individuals and the community at large. It also keeps our youths occupied and focused, as such we are pleased to support through this donation.”

Goodman Fielder introduces new rice

The company’s marketing manager, Jeremy Fry, says the new product brand name and colour was chosen after a nationwide research.       

“Long term plan of Goodman Fielder is to start milling the rice in our new site in Lae, which we have purchased land for and that forms our long term 5 year strategy, to be a complete food company in Papua New Guinea,” Fry stated.   

He said the medium grain rice was imported from Vietnam.

The rice will be sold in selected shops in Port Moresby, with the 200 grams going for a ‘skel’ (affordable) price of K1.
