Speaking at the event, country manager Tanaka Matimbe spoke of the journey that had led to the new packaging after a protracted court battle with Remington Gold over the use of the RG brand in Zimbabwe.

A court interdict was granted which led to the removal of our products from store shelves and our marketing communication materials from the market.

We have since appealed to the Supreme Court and we are waiting for the hearing. This is contrary to the previous reports which were publicised that we had lost the case.

The event was attended by trade partners, media and agencies.
