With the opening of another new bakery in the province of Camaguey, Cuba moves full swing into the modernization of some 1,000 bakeries across the island using Chinese technology.
Alejandro Roca, Cubas Food Industry minister, said the modern new ovens employed in the bakeries will significantly raise the quality of bread and use energy saving and cost efficient technologies.
Camaguey has already opened 14 of the 80 bakeries slated for this central province. The new bakeries will have better working conditions for the staff and improved sanitary conditions in general. They will be able to produce close to a million buns a day.
By mid 2007, Cuba is expected to have completed all 1,000 new bakeries, another sign of the countrys steady economic recovery.
