VITIS INDUSTRIES BREAKS BARRIERS IN BUSINESS
Vitis Industries Limited has reached yet another milestone this week with the opening of a new mini-supermarket, restaurant and mini bar under its Vikolia brand, at Glasnevin Compound in 8-Mile in NCD.
The new outlet gives shoppers the convenience of having to do their shopping in a safe, secure and cheap mini-market.
The second floor restaurant bar and grill gives shoppers the chance to relax and put their feet up and enjoy the convenience of great music, a nice cold drink and the best in local and international cuisines.
Vikolia’s Hub is a place to find cozy food and drink nooz opens from 8am to 8pm, while the booze bar and restaurant conducts business from 9am to 10pm from Monday to Sunday.
Vitis Industries General Manager, Dr Sergy Mossine and Director Vicky Mossine, proudly officiated at the opening ceremony witnessed by Vitis Management team and first customers who did not waste time to walk in and shopped as soon as doors where opened yesterday.
Director Mrs Vicky Mossine, said as a local company Vitis Industries, is proud to venture into new business and creating more employment opportunities for Papua New Guineans.
She added that the opening of this new business meant the creation of additional jobs for school leavers, improving living standards for ordinary Papua New Guineans.
Mrs Mossine, says Vitis Industries currently employs over 2000 plus workers in Port Moresby, Wau Bulolo, Goroka, Kokopo and Kavieng in New Ireland Province.
Despite the negative impacts caused bythe Covid-19 pandemic and global economic melt-down, Vitis Industries like any other business houses, is financially hard hit but the 100% locally-owned company strives to maintain its staff.
“We are a PNG owned company and our focus is on creating more employment opportunities for ordinary Papua New Guineans. We can’t put off our staff from their fortnightly jobs because they have families too. As a local company, we must give back to the communities and that is creating more employment opportunities for ordinary Papua New Guineans,’’ stressed Mrs Mossine.
“Yes, there is a lot of competition in the business world but as a local manufacturing company, our investments and profits stay in PNG and are reinvested back in to benefit citizens, the PNG Government and our economy,” explained Mrs Mossine.
