It has not come as a surprise how, in this appalling economy, manufacturing companies have drastically reduced the quantity and size of their products; not to mention the increased prices.
On a lighter note, I will not have believed that Gala, among other products, would be sold at a high price no matter how bad the economy may be. Very recently, the manufacturers of Nigeria’s popular sausage roll, UAC Foods, introduced the new Gala which comes in a bigger size. Obviously it looks bigger but I don’t think it really is.
Over the years, we enjoyed Gala because of its size and taste. Gradually, there was reduction in the size until now you would have to buy two Gala before you can get same satisfaction as when the size hadn’t been reduced.
May be I am just too quick to conclude but don’t take my opinion as a judgement on the company’s act to officially ‘return’ the old size of Gala; in a new package, and new price — N100. Unfortunately, it tastes the same as the one sold for just N50.
From commentaries, I have been able to gather that consumers would rather they purchase two N50 Gala than the newly introduced one. I’m sure, with time, the company would be forced to reduce the size again for consumers to purchase the N100 Gala and suddenly we wouldn’t find N50 Gala in the market.
Do you quite agree with me on this? Or are you indifferent about the new Gala size? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below. I would love to read them and give reply if need be.
You rock! 😉
