Capital Gets New Bread Factory

October 16 , 2021

A bread factory built at a cost of 217 million Br was inaugurated in Addis Abeba last week. Resting on 6,000sqm of land in the Lemi Kura District, the factory has the capacity to produce a million pieces of bread a day and is expected to create job opportunities for 450 people. The factory was inaugurated and handed over to the City Administration in a ceremony held in the presence of the Zinash Tayachew, spouse of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD), and Adanech Abiebie, mayor of Addis Abeba. The latest project follows in the footsteps of Sheger Bread Factory, built by the MIDROC Investment Group in cooperation with the City Administration. Constructed last year, the factory is producing way below capacity because of wheat shortages and most of the shops opened to supply its output are closed as a result.
