Flour Mills of Nigeria (FMN) sponsors the Dare2Dream project, a youth empowerment platform designed to expose creative talents to entrepreneurial skills in Nigeria.
It presents a broad basket of food products, which includes Nigeria’s number one pasta “Golden Penny”. The FMN group is on a mission to “Feed the Nation, Everyday” through its core food value chains: Grains, Sweeteners, Oils and Fats, Proteins, and Starches. This it does by creating value along the entire food chain with its “farm-to-table” model, providing inputs and know-how to farmers, aggregating, sourcing crops and raw materials to supply its world-class processing facilities across Nigeria, and distributing its innovative food brands to its customers.
Dare2Dream Season 5 has seen even more engagement of the youth due to fun activities hosted by Golden Penny such as the cooking competition which saw many youths female and male respectively turn up in numbers to show their culinary skills whilst competing to win amazing prizes.
According to her, culinary art is a recognized form of creativity all over the world. This is why this year, Golden Penny would be on the lookout for young ambassadors that show true potentials of becoming masters in the culinary arts. Also, Nigeria’s number 1 Pasta brand, Golden Penny Pasta, will be on hand to provide the right nutritional support and the vitality that they need to succeed in their dream.
Francesca Rosset, the producer of the Dare2Dream acknowledged the participation of Golden Penny in the Dare2Dream Campus Tour saying, “This year, the project will go beyond the university tours into a boot camp. During the boot camp, we will host a special masterclass on cooking, where we hope to reinforce the idea that creativity must be fueled by good nutrition.”
Dare2Dream is produced by Kinabuti and co-produced by Pulse Nigeria.
