Infosys to open a bakery outlet

The prison\'s bakery products are already popular and are sold from 45 outlets in the city, including at the Karnataka High Court, the government\'s Multi-Storeyed Building and state secretariat Vidhana Soudha.

Infosys, professionals at IT giant will get to eat yummy bakery products prepared by inmates of the Bengaluru central prison.

Kamal Pant, additional DGP (Prisons) confirmed that bakery products manufactured by prison inmates at the Parappana Agrahara penitentiary - not far from Electronics City - will have an outlet at the company, reported ET.

The prison's bakery products are already popular and are sold from 45 outlets in the city, including at the Karnataka High Court, the government's Multi-Storeyed Building and state secretariat Vidhana Soudha. This will be the first time that an outlet will be housed in an IT major.

"We sent a proposal to IT companies located in Electronics City seeking space within their premises to set up a bakery. Infosys has expressed its interest," Pant told. "Since it is not far from Parappana Agrahara, we will serve the bakes while they are hot."

According to a person familiar with this said that the prisoner-run-bakery is at an early stage. The project awaits a go-ahead, since a number of factors are being taken into account - most notably, the fact that Infosys already has a bakery at its plush American-styled headquarters in Electronics City. Infosys, on its part, is still figuring out the logistics involved with such a project.

"Early conversations have happened on this project but nothing is finalised yet," said the same person.

Fresh frankies, honey cakes, vege table puffs, bread toast, biscuits and cookies are baked everyday by prisoners in the central prison.

"It's a means of livelihood as they go on to work in bakeries outside. This is the very purpose of setting up the bakery," said Suresh K, Assistant Superintendent of Police (Prisons).

"We have to send our own staff to sell the products. The government has already permitted us to provide bakery items like bread to state-run hospitals, but we are short-staffed," he added.
