The Department of Physics and Biochemical Laboratory; the Food section, on May 11th, 2021 trained part of the youth who are studying freely at the MUBAS Incubation Centre, the art of baking and making sausages.

The youth who are being sponsored by the Government of Malawi, were trained by a Blantyre based catering expert; Jane Milanzi of the Philadelphia Bakers.

According to the Food Laboratory Manager, Ulemu Chimimba, the main aim is to help in equipping them with hands on skills so that they can use them to open  small businesses in future.

“We trained the youth in food processing methods in theory and also in practical so that they should be able to generate income on their own and compete on the market,” Chimimba said.

She further said that the youth are trained by experts from the industry which helps them to get recognized faster once they start their own businesses.

After being trained, the students were asked to bake a cake and make sausages which came out very well.

Also present was Laboratory assistant Patricia Kamwachale who directed the students too on the task.

In her remarks, Charity Msoliwa, one the students representing the group, thanked the food laboratory manager for organizing this practical course. She further  said that baking is her passion hence these skills will help her open a bakery business someday.
