National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has decried the lack of commitment to standard by members of the Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria in bread making.
The NAFDAC Director General, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja at a one-day sensitization workshop for bread producers in FCT.
Represented by Mrs Clementina Anyakkora, NAFDAC Director in FCT, Adeyeye said that the agency’s surveillance activities and routine inspections discovered the lack of commitment by most bakers to good hygiene practices, especially in bread making.
She said the lack of good hygiene practices made it necessary for the agency to collaborate with relevant stakeholders through workshops and grassroots sensitization to ensure compliance in that regard.
The NAFDAC boss, therefore, urged bakery owners in the FCT and the country at large to comply with good hygiene practices, principles and other regulatory requirements.
