RITE FOODS LIMITED’S FOOD, DRINKS AND HER: A CELEBRATION OF THE WOMAN
International women’s day is annually celebrated on March 8 to commemorate the achievements of women throughout history and across the nation. All through the month of March, there is always a buzz of celebration in the air to acknowledge the varying unique characteristics and strengths of a woman. This year’s celebration is not any different excluding the fact that the theme varies every year.
For the year 2019, the theme “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”, ran with the hashtag #balanceforbetter on social media.
This year, the conversation across the globe is to further express the need to understand gender equality. Many companies and organizations find this as an opportunity to contribute their quota to the society in the aspect of humanism. This celebration comes in different forms depending on the kind of organization and what they have in mind.
For us at Rite Foods Limited, it was another opportunity to give back to society. As a result, in celebrating the unique strengths of the feminine gender, we organized our first ever event: Food, Drinks and Her. Food, Drinks and Her aka FDH2019 held on the 30th of March at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos. The event which was a mix of exhibition, panelist discussions, guest appearances, and after-party started around 9 am till late in the night.
The event was indeed a platform where not just women but men of different ages had the opportunity to learn, network and above all, have a lot of fun. There were two panelist sessions where great women in different genres of business dished out undiluted tips on being successful in a chosen career. There were also about 35 exhibitors around at the event to showcase their different products in the food and drink sector.
The energy and excitement throughout the event remained high, and all in attendance had many wonderful things to say and take home with. How could anybody have any contrary experience when every tummy was filled and every body’s senses were activated on every level? With all expectations met, and many hoping for a repeat of a gathering like it again.
At Rite Foods Limited, we are forever committed to building our community.
