The controversial message by peak milk

It would recalled that CAN have accused and condemned the makers of Peak Milk of disrespecting Jesus Christ with an offensive good Friday commercial.

This was contained in a statement issued by the The General Secretary of CAN, Barrister Joseph Daramola, warning the company to retract the advert and tender an apology to Christians or face legal action and boycott of their products by Christians.

Reacting to that, the company have resulted to apologize and retract the controversial advert. “We acknowledge the sensitivity of the social media post considering the sobriety of the season.” FrieslandCampina WAMCO admits.
