First Lady welcomes Liberia’s first Mayonnaise Factory

First Lady Clar Marie Weah has praised Blue Lake Manufacturing Incorporated for establishing Liberia’s first mayonnaise factory, describing the endeavor as a major boost to the national economy.

Mrs. Weah said the new factory will provide jobs to many Liberians.

The First Lady was speaking Friday, March 24, 2023, at ceremonies marking the grand opening of the Blue Lake Mayonnaise factory on Bushrod Island in Monrovia.

Also speaking at the occasion, Acting Chair of the Cabinet and Minister of State George Wesseh Blamoh thanked Blue Lake Manufacturing Incorporated the confidence in the Liberia economy under the leadership of President George Manneh Weah.

Minister Blamoh called on other well-meaning businesses to follow suit in building more industries across Liberia, stressing that the economy has great potential.

Minister Blamoh said it was time for Liberia to move from the old days of more importation of goods to the building of more industries for local production.

For his part, the Chief Executive Officer of Blue Lake Manufacturing Incorporated, Houssein Cheaitou said he was inspired to make a difference in the business sector by producing quality mayonnaise that suits the tastes of all.

According to Mr. Cheaitou, the quality of mayonnaise offered in the Liberian market were either too salty, oily, acidic or sour, prompting consumers including diabetics to refrain from consuming the product.

Mr. Cheaitou said the new brand of mayonnaise will not only present a better alternative but also help reduce the importation of such products from abroad, on grounds that reduction in imports would help boost Liberia’s gross domestic product, GDP.

The grand opening ceremonies attracted dozens of dignitaries including diplomates, bankers, and executives of the business sector among others.
