The importance of food to the existence of human race cannot be overemphasised. Food must be available in the right quantity, quality and at the right time, for human beings to have meaningful existence.

It is against this background that all efforts must be made to promote food and allied productions. Bread is a major bakery product and about the most demanded all over the world.

The implication of this is that demand for bread is robust. Its consumption cuts across all ages, gender and races. It is taken virtually every minute, hour and in every country. It can be taken as breakfast, lunch or for dinner.

It is a ready-made food that does not demand further preparation except for those who want to toast it. Raw materials for bread production are readily available – wheat flour, which is heavily imported into the country.

Bakery can be managed by middle or low level manpower.  The ease of set up needs not be over flogged. Bakery belongs to the small scale group; its establishment will create more jobs and employment opportunities in the society.

Other benefits include: reduction of food crisis, stemming of hunger and reduction is social vices. Establishing a bakery is profitable; judging by our investigations, percentage returns on sales is about 40 percent, while percentage returns on investment is above 200 percent.

In view of the above, bakery establishment is recommended for the serious-minded and forward-looking investors.
