Honeywell restates commitment to youth development
Honeywell Flour Mills Plc. has reiterated its readiness to continuously invest in youth development and engagement activities, saying such action would bring out the best in Nigeria’s future leaders and make them more focused and ambitious.
Consumer Marketing Manager, Honeywell Flour Mills Plc., Mrs. Esther Tontoye, stated this during Honeywell Pasta Cooking Competition at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Lagos State camp, Iyana Ipaja where Omotara Ayeni of Platoon Nine emerged overall best cook, winning a fridge with N30, 000 cash.
According to Tontoye, Honeywell will continue to support cooking talents among the youths, saying such will bring out their skills with a view to equipping them for future challenges.
It will also endear them early enough to the company’s products by making them Honeywell Ambassadors.
Explaining the rationale behind the competition, she said the company is using the opportunity provided by the unique change point of the youth corps members who are future mothers and fathers by introducing the company’s products to them so as to appreciate them with a view to shaping their choice of foods in future.
“We are looking beyond today. Our expectation is in the long run. These are prospective mothers and fathers who will be opinion moulder in their respective families.
“They will virtually be Honeywell Ambassadors as they have affinity with the products already. Besides, we are doing this to also lift the social activities in the camp so that the corps members’ stay will not be boring,” she added.
Camp Director, Mrs. Winifred Shokpeka, and State Coordinator, Mohammed Momoh, appreciated the company for its continued commitment to the programme in terms of human and capital resources and urged other corporate organisations to emulate its gesture.
