MAGGI® has been inspiring millions of women to use local ingredients to cook healthy-tasty meals for their families through its highly successful nutrition roadshows. With its Yelo Pèppè Series, MAGGI® partnered Google’s YouTube and collaborated with Ghanaian Award-Winning Film Director and Writer, Shirley Frimpong-Manso to bring Central and West African audience the richest video content possible.

We want to connect with more than 10 million people on the importance of eating a nutritious diet, adopting healthy lifestyles and maintaining a sense of wellbeing.”
