In a press release issued in Monrovia on Wednesday, October 30, 2010, the association said this encouraging act on the part of the President and his government has made it possible for hundreds of Liberians to get jobs.
“Through the helps received from the flour factory, we have been able to open more bakeries. This has made it possible for hundreds of Liberians to get employment; something I believe is very commendable.” The release quotes Mr. Barry, head of Bakers’ association, as stating.
The release further indicated that members of the association will be benefiting from advanced training and will receive mixers from the factory to make their baking easier.
“This will enable Liberians to improve the sector and enhance the viability of a product that can be locally produced. This will also reduce our too much reliance on rice consumption.” The releasefurther quotes Mr. Barry as stating.
