“Today, we say thank you to the people who stay at their jobs so we can stay safe at home”, Eat’n’go wrote in a statement, adding that “since the rise of the Covid-19 global pandemic, we have witnessed the rise of heroes across the countries – the doctors, nurses, police officers and other security agencies”. With these words, the Nigerian food and beverage Group headquartered in Lagos wanted to express its gratitude to all the workers who are on the emergency frontline. Part of a joint venture built by Sebastien Clamorgan‘s Venia International, Eat’n’go has launched this support initiative to help workers in combating the spread of Covid-19 in Nigeria. Feeding the Frontline has made it possible to donate 23 million naira value of products, including over 13,600 slices of pizza, 10,000 cups of ice cream, and 800 cups of yoghurt, reaching 6,500 workers at the frontline. “We throw a salute to these MVPs; our very own Heroes. Thank you for your selfless commitment to our community. We are grateful for you! We will continue to support you”, the statement concluded. The charity initiative is one of the social projects carried out by Eat’n’go over the years. The food and beverage Group started operating in 2012 and, since then, opened more than 100 stores across Nigeria, managing to achieve market leadership in the country.
