Nippon Premium Bakery is adding Milk and Caramel mini loaves to its growing list of Fuwa Fuwa branded bakery goods produced in the Philippines.
The two new products are thicker slices of their soft and fluffy premium bread. The milk mini loaf can easily be paired with spreads and are somewhat like the thicker slices used in kaya toast, while the caramel mini loaf is ideal for desserts, particularly with ice cream, jam, and syrup.
The launch of the new products came just weeks after Nippon Premium Bakery recently inaugurated its baking facility at the First Philippine Industrial Park in Santo Tomas, Batangas.
This 2-hectare factory broke ground in 2017 as a result of the joint venture between Tokyo-based holding company Sojitz Corporation, Ryoyu Baking Co. Ltd, and JR&R Distributors. The factory floor features state-of-the-art baking and materials transport equipment that can produce 3,600 loaves, 32,256 sandwich rolls and 17,568 buns in an 8-hour run.
“For us, this factory is more than a financial investment. We are also investing in the people because we believe that our most vital assets are our people,” Takao Okabe, CEO and president of Nippon Premium Baker, said in his welcome statement, according to abs-cbn.com.
The factory currently employs 100 people and will increase to 300 as production ramps up.
