Bakery Initiatives Group has begun a massive training and re-training of bakers in Nigeria to acquaint them with the requisite knowledge to run bakeries profitably as well as expose them to international best practices and emerging trends in the industry.
The training program aimed at training more than 200 bakers over a period of two years, will run in phases and began with a train-the-trainers program. The objective is to increase the theoretical and practical knowledge of participants in the bakery and confectionary industry and also equip them to be able to transfer such knowledge to others thereby creating a large pool of knowledgeable people in this field.
The training program which held for two weeks in Yaba, Lagos started on Monday, June 25, 2018 and covered such areas as technology and practice of baking of bread, cakes and pastries with special emphasis on recipes, effects of basic ingredients, cost calculations among others.
According to Bakery Initiatives’ Master Baker and Trainer, Mr. Jan Bosch, the participants were screened and carefully selected from among many people that applied for the program and it is expected that at the end, they will all become skilled professionals able to employ the knowledge acquired not only to manage bakeries profitably but also impart the knowledge to others.
