NIGERIA – Sundry Foods Limited (SFL), a leading food services company in Nigeria, is set to establish what they term the largest bakery in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Nduka Mokwunye, Head of Marketing, expressed the company’s vision while unveiling the company’s statement.
According to the statement, the new bakery will have a groundbreaking daily production capacity of approximately 100,000 loaves of bread. This marks the fourth addition to SFL’s bakery network, which already spans Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt.
The move is geared towards meeting the increasing demand for SFL’s Nibbles bread products. The company noted that SFL’s bakery offerings are known for their superior quality and premium ingredients.
Nibbles bread is the hallmark of SFL’s bakery services, characterized by its meticulous selection of the finest ingredients in bread making.
“We are excited about what the new bakery means for our numerous customers.” “It will help fill the gap that the current increase in demand for Nibbles bread has generated,” said Ebele Enunwa, Managing Director/CEO of SFL.
Enunwa added that the strategic move would also expand the reach of the bakery products and strengthen its presence in the competitive bakery space in the country.
The move comes amid rising production costs in the baking sector in the country.
Recently, the Rivers State chapter of the Association of Master Bakers and Caterers urged consumers in the state to prepare for a new price regime as bakers grapple with the rising cost of production.
Dr. Chidi Orlu, the state chairman of the association, explained that the country’s current economic realities were negatively impacting bakers’ production costs. However, he noted that the increment would be minimal.
However, Enunwa reiterated SFL’s unwavering commitment to proactively address gaps in the food industry, aligning with the company’s founding principles.
He assured that SFL’s product offerings will continue to lead the food service industry in Nigeria, responding to evolving customer demands.
He also emphasized the company’s commitment to innovation, acknowledging its pivotal role in keeping up with industry trends.
SFL, in addition to its bakery services, owns and operates a portfolio of locally crafted food brands and services, including Kilimanjaro, Nibbles Creamery, Pizza Jungle, KiliGrill, and Sundry Foods Services, catering to the diverse needs of corporate organizations.
