Fast-growing food company and makers of Filade bread, Filade Bakery and Confectioneries have commissioned its modern bakery in Aguda-Ogba in order to meet up with increasing demands for their products.
The bakery which is well-equipped with modern baking gadgets was commissioned on Sunday by the Alaguda of Aguda, Oba Akeem Agbaosi.
At the commissioning, CEO of Filade Bakery and Confectioneries, Alhaja Shakirat Alade explained that the expansion became necessary due to growing demands inspired by the wide acceptance of Filade bread in Magboro where operations stated in 2014.
Alhaja Alade assured that the company will not drop the standard of its product even in the face of stiff competition and a rise in product demands.
She further hinted that there are plans to commission more outlets especially in the Lekki-Ajah area of Lagos as well as other parts of West Africa in 2019.
“We realize that there are lots of competition around here but we are well prepared. Where ever Filade bread gets to, it dominates other products because I don’t reduce any of my materials, I don’t compromise standard; even when we were just starting out” she stated
Also speaking to CK10Media.com, General Manager of the bakery, Mr. Friday Kehinde stated that the new bakery will help the company further compete in terms of pricing.
Friday added that with world class equipment and quality staff numbering about 15, the bakery was well prepared for a surge in demand.
He said “We have different types of bread to meet everybody especially the low-income earners. I mean, we even have one as low as N150-the mini-loaf- but that does not mean that we drop our standards in anyway”
Commissioning the Bakery, the Alaguda of Aguda, Oba Akeem Agbaosi (Ewe Obajade I) expressed delight that the bakery was bringing more development to his community while also engaging youths from the Aguda area in gainful employment.
Earlier, prayers were offered by popular Muslim clergy, Alhaji Rasheed Fasasi (Alhaji Ferrari), who is also the Bobadara of Aguda land. The commissioning was well-attended by a long list of family, friends and well wishers

The company started operations in 2014 in the Magboro Area of Ogun State. The ever growing demand of its product in Magboro and some parts of Lagos has forced the commsioning of the new bakery in Ogba.
