Talking about the difficulties they went through before fruitfully bringing the product to Ghana, she said “we have been struggling for about 5 years now to bring the product to Ghana but the main outlet in South Africa fear that Ghanaians might not purchase it because of its pricing so we had to take about 5 years to research and to test the market with some samples.

When we realized the response was motivating, we decided to bring it to Ghana.” Apart from the ‘Bad Girl’ drink, Wineyard Trading Company Limited has different types of drinks like as wild fruit juice drinks from South Africa and now they are the sole distributors of ‘Bad Girl’ drink in Ghana.
