SON to sanction master bakers operating in unhygienic environment

The Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) says it will henceforth sanction any master baker caught operating in an unhygienic environment following the outbreak of Lassa Fever in some states.
The Osun State Coordinator of SON, Mr Sunday Badewole,  gave the warning at a seminar organised for members of the Association of Master Bakers and Confectionery of Nigeria in Osogbo.
At the one-day seminar with theme: “Good Manufacturing Practice: A Must in Factories’’, Mr Badewole said that exposing flour and other raw baking materials to rodents was unhygienic.
The SON official said the research carried out by the organisation revealed that many master bakers operated in environment that did not meet the Nigeria Industrial Standards.
