Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Daniel Adugbo

Honey­well Flour Mills Plc said it has trained 300 Mas­ter Bak­ers whose skills are ex­pected to give mul­ti­plier ef­fects on their businesses as part of its drive to in­creas­ing hu­man ca­pac­ity de­vel­op­ment.

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Honey­well Mr. Lanre Jaiye­ola at the 24th Cer­tifi­cate Award Cer­e­mony of the Honey­well Bak­ing School in La­gos said the man­age­ment was plan­ning to in­crease en­rol­ment by about 200 per cent. The cur­rent ca­pac­ity av­er­ages 20 people, a state­ment by the com­pany said.

The Bak­ing School ac­cord­ing to Jaiye­ola is a way of em­pow­er­ing bak­ers with mod­ern bak­ing skills and flour han­dling pro­ce­dures that they can use to run their businesses more pro­fes­sion­ally and prof­itably.

He said it is an ex­pe­ri­en­tial pro­gramme de­signed to give bak­ers first­hand bak­ing train­ing with well-trained ex­perts in a world class en­vi­ron­ment.

“At the Honey­well Bak­ing School, we teach bak­ers the sci­ence and art of bak­ing with spe­cial fo­cus on scal­ing, recipe for­mu­la­tion and recipe ad­just­ment. The bak­ers are also taught com­mon bread faults and how to solve them, ba­sic sell­ing, mar­ket­ing, fi­nance and people man­age­ment tips and how to max­i­mize bak­ery out­put through the pro­duc­tion of fresher, richer and bet­ter bread and bread va­ri­eties,” he said.
