Tempers are flaring at Fan Milk Limited (FML) Ghana over what workers describe as very threatening and intimidating maneuvers by the Stephane Couste-led management to remove top managers of the most profitable ice cream producing company in the country, from the company.
Already, the management has sacked three top managers including: Samuel Asante, former IT Manager, the Financial Controller, Nathan Dennis, and Assistant Director Eric Ofori Adarkwa.
These three senior managers, this paper’s findings indicated, were very instrumental in the success story of FML.
The New Crusading GUIDE has learnt that the development was creating tension in FML, with the workers threatening to demonstrate against the new management.
According to deep throat sources, the workers were peeved about what they considered to be “open discrimination at FML” and the lack of motivation by the new management.
“The plan by the new management is to get rid of the old staff who have worked relentlessly to make FML very attractive,” about five sources who have knowledge about the goings on in the company alleged.
Another source also revealed to this paper that for the past 3 years running, the company has been experiencing shortages of its products on the market which was due to the incompetence of the new management.
According to the source, ever since the new management took over, they have not expanded the cold room facilities which were bequeathed to them.
“Interestingly, the Couste-led management is rather doing expansion in the factory by bringing in new machines,” the source hinted.
The source also alleged that the quality and size of the FML products have been tampered with several times under the watch of the current management.
“The content of the products became watery and sandy. Currently some of the Fan Ice cream on the market are sandy. The size has been reduced from 145ml to 130ml,” the source further alleged.
Attempts to reach Fan Milk management for response proved futile as they have all been tightlipped on the matter.
