Nestlé Professional – Improving Food Business In Nigeria

Olushola Okunlade Writes

In the hierarchy of human needs, food is high on the scale of priorities.

The business of food is, therefore, a very important sector of the economy, with many providers serving those with limited disposable income. It goes without saying that affordability is a major deciding factor for consumers.

The caterers, food vendors, canteens, and ‘bukkas’ who serve this segment, do not always get the support they need to provide nutritious, healthy, and affordable meals to their ‘customers.’

Nestlé Nigeria’s Out of Home business arm, Nestlé Professional Business, recently collaborated with the Association of Caterers and Food Vendors in Ibadan, Oyo State to deliver a food education workshop for over 200 canteen and food vendors.

The engagement themed: The Business of Food was organized to educate the participants and provide tips on how to grow their food service business. They were also shown how to cook tasty meals that will delight their customers.

Outstanding cooks were celebrated and rewarded with relevant tools and MAGGI products to cook Nigeria’s favorite dishes.

Speaking at the event, Mrs. Funmi Osineye, Manager, Nestlé Professional Nigeria, said, “The collaboration with the Association of Caterers and Food Vendors provides the opportunity for Nestlé to share her expertise in Nutrition, Health and Wellness developed over 150 years with members of the association here today, and going forward.

We are also delighted to use this occasion to introduce the new, affordable, and pocket-friendly Maggi 100g powder in Chicken and Star Seasoning variants for small food business owners. Nestlé Professional will continue to build this partnership with caterers and food vendors to offer better services to the industry.”

The Business of Food event kicked off with a Cooking Masterclass, where experts shared knowledge and techniques for managing the complexities of food systems. Topics included ‘food-preneur,’ food styling, and food plating.

Following the Masterclass, was the Cooking Demo, where celebrity chef Shine demonstrated the preparation of a vegetable soup mix of MAGGI Chicken and Star Seasoning powders.

Chef Shine also educated caterers on meal tasting and gave a step-by-step guide on how to cook affordable nutritious meals with a consistent taste for their customers.

Then came the Cooking Competition! Caterers were divided into two groups. Each group chose three representatives for the competition. Participants were instructed to cook a ‘banging’ party Jollof with the available ingredients and seasoning.

The meals presented by each group were judged based on tasty meals, meal presentation, and plating.

Nestlé Professional’s food and product education workshop was packaged to equip food vendors and caterers with the knowledge needed to optimise their food business while using MAGGI powders effectively. The event combined knowledge sharing with a lot of fun and engaging activities to make it memorable for the participants.

Construction Technician, Others Get Glo Festival of Joy Prizes in Onitsha

Construction Technician, Others Get Glo Festival of Joy Prizes in Onitsha

Olushola Okunlade Writes

The story of Chukwuemeka Chikezie, a Glo subscriber who presented brand new car in the Glo Festival of Joy promo in Onitsha on Wednesday is as interesting as the star prize that he won.

Scores of other subscribers also took home Power Generating sets, Sewing Machines and
Rechargeable Fans.

The 30-year-old Construction Technician is impaired in his left arm from a job-related accident he had in 2019. But despite that setback, Chikezie has never wavered in working to provide an assured future for himself. He lost his father in the aftermath of that occupational
travail.

On Tuesday, when he was called, he was working on a project in Enugu, far away from his Onitsha base. Chikezie was sweating it out on his work when he received the life-transforming call. Despite that, he found it difficult that he could become an instant car winner just like that.

Till he got the keys to the car on Wednesday at an elaborate ceremony held at the Gloworld premises at Conoil station, Onitsha Bridgehead, Chikezie was hesitant to believe he had become a car owner.

“If anyone had told me yesterday that I would be a car owner today, I would never have believed it”, he said, adding that “I love the Glo network very well and I have always depended on it for my calls and data needs” Chikezie was full of praise for Glo for transforming his life through the car prize.

The travails that led to his being unable to use his left hand were enough to make anyone lose hope, but he never gave up. Winners of other items were equally grateful to Glo for their winnings.

Anielue Arinze, who won a generator, disclosed that he never expected such winning at this time. He disclosed that the generator will be very useful for him, especially in the heat period. On his part, Ezeji Uzoma Noble, who won a Sewing Machine, expressed gratitude to Globacom for the prize he won.

Hon. (Mrs) Beverly Ikpeazu-Nkemdiche, representing Onitsha South 2 Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly, disclosed that her first number upon returning to Nigeria some years ago was a Glo number. She commended Globacom for its support to its subscribers through the life-changing prizes in the promo.

The Transition Chairman, Onitsha South Local Govt Area, Anambra State, Hon. Emeka Orji, expressed happiness that the event was held within his jurisdiction. He commended Globacom for putting the promo in place.

Representative of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Mr. Ezelue Nnamdi, said the Commission was happy with Globacom for its transparency in the conduct of the promo draws and the presentation of prizes to the winner.

The event was also graced by two of Glo brand influencers, Ebube Nwagbo and Stephen Odimgbe (Flashboy) who both enjoined more people to join the Glo network to have access to a wide array of excellent products and services apart from the life-changing prizes they stand for to win for being on the network.
