FMF Foods Limited Group Marketing Manager Poonam Kritika acknowledged the Fletcher Steel and Foster Group for encouraging female staff to have the tests.
“This only reinforces that a healthy workforce is a critical part of any successful business,” she added.
Alternatively, she said with early month of November, the initiative started at FMF, whereby the male staff grew moustache and beard to help create awareness on prostate cancer which has become a growing concern in the community.
“Male staff were encouraged to go through prostate screening and awareness at Pacific Specialist Hospital based on FMF premises from December 6th to December 8.
Total of 170 male staff took advantage of this opportunity and went through screenings in additional a blood drive was held at FMF on December 7th to assist Ministry of Health with their Blood Drive.
