Dangote Flour Mills Plc at the weekend celebrated the maiden edition of world puff-puff day with over 50 confectioners engaged to produce over 30,000 pieces of the local snack, as part of activities marking the day.
World puff-puff day, according to the Group managing director of Dangote Flour Mills, Thabo Mabe, is an initiative of the flour miller to celebrate three categories of people, the confectioners who fry the delicacy, the consumers who enjoy the snack and even the sellers who make a living by selling it.
He stated that the event was organised to celebrate Nigeria’s creativity in the local delicacy as well as further create awareness for the company’s 1.5kg size launched in March this year.
He said, “The World puff-puff day is one of the most modern festivals. For us, we thought how do you bring flavour to the household and this is why we introduce the 1.5kg.
“This would make it easier for Nigerians to enjoy their puff-puff, bread, and other pastries at a go and make it healthy as well, rather than buying it from the market measured with plastic, which may not be hygienic. But now the small kg is handy, it can be put in the cabinet and consumer can create flavour of their choice.” Read more
