The Managing Director, Rite Foods Limited, Seleem Adegunwa, while reacting to the partnership said,
“Like everyone else, we find these moments to be most challenging, especially taking into cognizance, its effects on economic activities and its consequences on daily sustenance for Nigerians, especially, the most economically vulnerable. This is why we are glad to be a part of the Lagos State COVID-19 Emergency Food response Project, as we look forward to doing our bit to help with providing nutrition for Lagosians across the state.”

Rite Foods Limited Visit Igbobi Hospital with lots of Love.

RITE FOODS VISIT TO IGBOBI ORTHOPEDIC HOSPITAL

Valentine’s Day is a day that marks the celebration of love. More often than not, the love that’s usually celebrated is between romantic couples and lovers. For us at Rite Foods Limited, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is always at the heart of what we do. 

Therefore, on Valentine’s day, we visited Igbobi Orthopedic Hospital at Yaba, to celebrate love with the patients as well as the care givers.

According to Desmond Tutu, “compassion is not just feeling with someone, but seeking to change the situation. Frequently, people think compassion and love are merely sentimental. No, they are very demanding. If you are very compassionate, be prepared for action!”

The patients and staff at the hospital were really excited about the display of love showered on them on that day. As a brand, we might not have done so much, but we believe that the little we did would rest in the minds of the benefactors. We would not relent in our efforts to express love however way we can and whenever we can.

It is our hope and prayer that these ones will recover speedily and be in the position to in turn show love to others. Also, we hope that many more Nigerians will display the proudly Nigerian spirit of being their brother’s keeper.

It is not just our culture to find good deeds and reward them but we are passionate about people who strive to do good when they don’t need to. On Thursday 21st of March 2019, we changed the story of a young man, Ugochukwu Ibere, who was once a street hawker of ready to go sausages, as of today he now owns his own furnished, equipped and well-stocked shop (Ugochuku Ibere Store) located at 181, Bamgbose Street, Lagos Island. Ugochukwu Ibere, who had faced his own fair share of hardship and injustice, found it in his heart to give aid to convicts being transported to Ikoyi prison, it was in his selfless act that he was spotted and his picture shared on social media drew our attention, his humanitarian service and deep level of empathy touched our hearts and we were moved to empower him for his immeasurable act of kindness.

We are confident in his prospect of being extremely successful because he has shown dedication to everything he has committed himself to.
At the launch of Mr. Ibere’s new shop, Mr. Joseph Adesewo, Regional Sales Manager, who represented  Mr. Seleem Adegunwa, Managing Director of Rite Foods Limited and other members of the Rite Foods staff interacted with passersby who were humbled by Mr. Ugochukwu’s grass to grace testimony.

No other person was more satisfied than Mrs. Adenike Ajitena a Banker and a Lawyer who was responsible for first spreading the word of this Hero without a cape.
