“I am happy to hear that Azania has created a large number of employment opportunities, most of them are residents of our district, its affirming to also realise that Azania PHF flour is going to make the work easier for women food vendors (mama lishe) but also other consumers.
On his part, Azania Group Business Development Manager, Joel Laiser said the newly launched Azania PHF flour comes as research to bring a solution, diversity and convenience to its consumers, as most are often too pressed for time to produce quality range of products such as maandazi , chapati and diverse dishes and snacks.
He said the motive behind this product launch was to; “increase benefits and add value to our customers as we believe our market is ready to be adventurous in its use of higher quality ingredients across a wider array of snacks and meals.”
