â€œWe respect our Nigerian consumers and from listening to them, for this reason,Â we use the latest technology to deliver superior products that meet their needs bringing world class standards to the markets – raising consumer satisfaction and market standards.â€

â€œOur R&D centre in Brussels, along with our Quality Assurance laboratory, ensures that our products are manufactured in compliance with global standards.,â€ she noted.
â€œToday, we are excitedÂ to introduce the newest addition in improving the lives of Nigerian consumers; the latest technology which delivers superior cleaning in â€œone wash,â€ Ariel Prozim.
â€œ This product comes from our state of the art production plant in Ibadan; the only P&G Detergent factory in the whole of our Sub-Saharan Africa region.,â€ she pointed out.
Molyneux observed that Ariel is creating value for Nigerian consumers by offering the right products to meet consumersâ€™ needs and budget, this she stated was as a result of the demand by Nigerian consumers that prompted the coming of the new product into the market. â€œWith the New Ariel Prozim you only need to wash your clothes once, this means that you use half the quantity of Ariel that you would use with another detergent. Nigerian consumers can be certain they are making smart choices when every naira counts.â€

The Associate Director thanked Nigerians and NAFDAC for their support, and acknowledge that the company could not have brought the product and the associated job opportunities to Nigerians.
â€œWe must mention the immense support of NAFDAC, an agency that is known globally for its effort to ensure that only the best quality products are available for Nigerian consumers.â€ she said.
