Nestle Professional Business, the Out of Home business arm of Nestle Nigeria PLC, has taken its Business of Food roadshow training to Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The aim of the roadshow is to deliver food education to over 300 canteen operators and food vendors.
Nestle Professional Business organized the programme in collaboration with the Association of Caterers and Food Vendors.
Victoria Uwadoka, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager of Nestle, disclosed in a statement on 1st December 2022 that participants at the workshop received tips on how to grow their food service businesses.
The caterers and food vendors were shown how to cook tasty meals that will delight their customers as experts shared knowledge and techniques for managing the complexities of food systems, Uwadoka explained, adding that topics taught on the programme include Food-Preneur, Food Styling and Food Plating.
“The women of Port Harcourt are amazing and we are super-excited to be here,” Funmi Osineye, Manager, Nestle Professional Nigeria, said. “The Business of Food workshop is an initiative we developed in response to the need to provide the support micro, small and medium scale food vendors need to scale their businesses.
“We are also conscious of our responsibility as the Good Food Good Life Company to contribute towards increasing knowledge of the role food plays in improving Nutrition, Health and Wellness.
“We have brought these two objectives together in the Business of Food which we are hosting in Port Harcourt today. Our customers and other stakeholders can count on us to consolidate this partnership with caterers and food vendors to ensure better services in the country.”
