Nigerians have been assured that their yearnings for consistent access to quality, healthy and affordable food staples would be met.
This assurance was given by Crown Flour Mill Limited, which produces a wide range of quality flour, pasta noodles, biscuits, semolina and confectionery from wheat.
Other famous product range of Crown Flour Mill includes Mama Gold Flour, Crown Premium Pasta, Crown Pasta, Supreme Semolina and Crown Tuwovita.
The Managing Director of Crown Flour Mill, Mr Ashish Pande, while speaking on the celebration of the World Whole Grain Day on Thursday, November 19, 2020, stated that the company was committed to national food security.
According to Pande, the firm has made a major investment in milling plants and technical innovations across its subsidiaries and has been able to show its commitment to food security through consistent focus on food safety, innovation and cost efficiencies especially along its wheat-milling value-chain.
“Based on a deep understanding of the Nigerian consumers, our food brands are produced under the highest safety standards; and we have developed a robust distribution and redistribution network that are tailored to the market landscape.
“These efforts ensure that our portfolio of wheat-based products such as flour used at bakeries and confectioneries and packaged pasta and noodle brands, which are consumed frequently in Nigerian households, are made available across retail shops and marketplaces across Nigeria,” he said.
Mr Pande added that “the company is committed to quality food standards and production models that add nutritional value to the consumers and economic benefits to the nation.”
“With our major investments in modern milling plants, we have been able to develop an efficient milling process. The investment in our production process is a further demonstration of our focus on food safety, consumer nutritional health and cost efficiencies,” he further stated.
At the moment, many Nigerians are groaning over the high cost of food items in the market and the federal government has attributed this to the recent #EndSARS protest and activities of bandits in the northern part of Nigeria, where most food items are cultivated.
