A LOCAL manufacturer, Murzah Soaps and Detergent Ltd, has introduced a new soap and detergent packaged in 210 litres for large scale users in industrial installations, hospitals and tourist hotels.
The company's Managing Director, Mr Haroon Daud Abdallah, popularly known as Zakaria, said during a brief ceremony to introduce the product that the company also intends to sell new and used plastic drums of 210 litres.
He said that this is the first time the product is manufactured in that volume which will help to reduce expenses for various companies and other customers including low income earners since it is economical. The MD called on companies, especially those specializing in cleaning, to make best use of the new product as it will offer a long term solution.
Mr Abdallah urged Tanzanians to cultivate the culture of buying local products so as to create employment opportunities in Tanzania, particularly for the youth. "The availability of soap and detergents in 210 litres will help our prisons and hospitals to meet their needs.
These areas are faced with various challenges when it comes to maintaining cleanliness and we have offered a solution," he said. "This is the only opportunity of improving cleaning services including for laundries and dry cleaners," the MD stressed. He added that the soap and detergent will be available through their agents.
