Feeding ambitions: Honeywell Flour Mills’ Baking School

As part of its social responsibility, Honeywell Flour Mills (HFM) commenced Honeywell Baking School in 2006, as a way of giving back to the community.

Feeding ambitions: Honeywell Flour Mills’ Baking School

The school is a periodic 3-week vocational training program in Baking Technology where participants receive free formal and informal training to enhance their skills. The key objective of the Baking School is to empower bakers with contemporary baking skills that will help improve their baking processes which will result in better yield and increased turnover.

In 2019, HFM Baking School partnered with Nigerian Correctional Services, Kirikiri Lagos to train 35 inmates as Master Bakers; this is to empower the inmates with means of livelihood ahead of completing their term.

To create a sustainable impact, a functional bakery and bread shop was set up at the Correctional Center by HFM in collaboration with Hour of Liberty Ministry for the trained inmates to deploy their skills, train other inmates and produce bread and snacks for the consumption of residents.

The Baking School has graduated over 500 bakers in its 15 years of existence and continues to receive applications from both prospective and existing bakers who have seen the values added by the school to their colleagues in the baking industry.
