Sungold Food Processing Limited over the weekend hosted kick boxing players at the company’s headquarters in Lilongwe where they gave out hampers containing Sungold products.
Apart from the hampers, the company also gave out the winning athletes K50,000.
Sungold Managing Director Maheshi Ghedia said the company decided to host the players as one way of thanking and motivating them.
He said the company decided to support the players after noting importance of the game.
He explained, “Kick boxing is a new sporting activity and most companies support the already existing games, leaving the new game without support. This is the reason we came in to help.”
Deputy Director in the Ministry of Sports, Kinnah Phiri commended Sungold for the assistance.
Phiri said government cannot support every sporting discline hence the need for private sector partnership.
The Flames legend said government is soon embarking on player scouting exercise and more support will be needed.
Sungold Food Processing Limited manufactures Sungold puff, Sungold instant Phala- Phala King, low fat soya fine and cake, full fat soya cake and high energy for poultry and animal feed industry.
