Bread makers declare nationwide strike


Premium Breadmakers Association of Nigeria (PBAN), comprising owners, Managing Directors, and Partners of premium bakeries in Nigeria, will be embarking on a four-day warning strike beginning from Thursday, July 21, 2022.


The strike decision was taken by the bread makers due to increasing prices of baking materials in the country.

President of the Association, Emmanuel Onuorah and Public & Industrial Relations Officer, Babalola Thomas also asked NAFDAC to review downwards the N154,000 penalty charged bakeries on late renewal of certificates.

The statement read;

âOperating a bakery in Nigeria has become near impossible as the incessant increase in the prices of baking materials and diesel rendered the industry comatose. Bakeries are mostly running on huge losses and this is no longer sustainable.

âBread is a staple food and one of the cheapest âgrab and goâ food that is available for both the poor and rich. It therefore behooves on the federal government to be mindful of this and ensure the survival and sustainability of the industry.

âIn a move to ensure the survival of the Premium breadmaking industry in Nigeria, we have decided to embark on a withdrawal of services beginning from Thursday 21st July, 2022 for four days in the first instance and where no intervention from the government, we shall escalate the duration of the withdrawal.

âOur efforts to ensure the survival of the industry led to series of meetings with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Abuja (FMITI) with our sister association in the breadmaking industry in 2021. Our best attempts to ensure that suggestions we put forward for survival of the breadmaking industry has not yielded the desired result.

âTherefore, the withdrawal of service is the only way we believe we can use to get to Federal Government and Nigerians and let them know our plight and how difficult it has been with the breadmaking industry in Nigeria.â
