The President, Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has initiated a new project aimed at celebrating hardworking homemakers.
The project, tagged the World Puff-puffDay, is to be celebrated on October 27 every year, according to Dangote Flour Mills.
Two tonnes (40 bags of 50-kilogramme) flour were used at the maiden edition of the event, which held on Saturday, with 30,000 pieces of puff-puff produced.
The Group Marketing Executive, Dangote Flour Mills, Mrs Funmilayo Bolarinwa, said the firm aimed to beat the current Guinness Book of World Records of 200kg (four big bags) of flour fried at a particular location.
“We brought over 50 confectioners selected from different parts of Lagos to fry different flavours and varieties of puff-puff, including pepper, vanilla, coconut and other flavours,” she said
