Delight Bakery resumes business today after tragedy


DELIGHT Bakery will resume business operations today after a temporary closure following the fatal incident on Monday, January 22.

However, the flour production department in which the incident occurred will remain closed until further notice.

It is understood the deceased had been crushed to death in one of the machines on Monday.

Delight Bakery had been closed following the incident to allow police to carry out investigations and co-workers to pay their respects and tributes to the deceased.

This closure is expected to see a decline in the distribution of flour and bread around the country, but biscuits production and distribution will continue as normal.

On site yesterday, Island Sun queried the company’s occupational health and safety regulation but received no comments from employees.

It is also unclear whether there has also been any reconciliation carried out between the company and the deceased’s family.

Meanwhile, police are doing their investigation on the case.

Delight Bakery is the county’s well-known producer and distributor of biscuits, bread and flour.
