“My joining Suntory Beverage & Food Nigeria is a great opportunity to build on the impressive foundation laid by my predecessors, and to work with a committed Nigerian team.
“Suntory Group has seen the huge potential in Nigeria, and I am optimistic that we will continue grow Lucozade and Ribena brands and deliver value to our customers,” Pantole said.
