Honeywell trains 300 bakers
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.
