Customers in Canada have applauded the family-run Nigerian bakery, Grey Matlock Bakery in Brampton, Ontario, for making Nigerian Agege Bread.
Agege bread is a soft bread that derives its name from an area in Lagos known as Agege.
A Nigerian man named Wale Oladapo established an Agege bread factory in Brampton after moving to Canada in 2016. The 2018-established bread factory has expanded significantly and now has locations throughout Canada.
According to him, the bakery has locations in Calgary, Waterloo, Ottawa, and Windsor, as well as various franchises.

So, it was easy for everyone to have a taste of the bread and spread the word.”
