Junachi said, “We conducted a research that suggests there were negative opinions about the Monosodium Glutamate flavoring – Ajinomoto seasoning.
“Women make most decisions in terms of what to buy in the markets especially as it concerns food, so, we feel it is important to educate them that the brand is safe for consumption.
“Our objective is to sensitise them and also change the perception of the people of South East about our product.
“The campaign will continue until people change their mindset and realise that there is no harm in using the brand,’’ he said.
