The Baking Industry Exhibition (BIE) is working with its exhibitors and an impressive list of market leading trade bodies and associations to demonstrate the latest innovations and technologies for the bakery and snacks sectors.
BIE will continue to focus on the whole range of production environments including volume production, craft baking, packaging and bake-off. A full range of technologies for processing and packaging, as well as ingredients and materials will be demonstrated.
The new ‘Craft Baker’s Shop’ will enable new and existing exhibitors to demonstrate a host of innovative and exciting new products to help independent bakers increase their retail offering. Bakers are increasingly trying to offer customers a wider range of products to increase their footfall and average spend. The ‘Shop’ is dedicated to retail products that can be sampled and the ideas taken back try in visitors’ own outlets.
After the success of the Bakery Live in 2008, it’s back to help improve bakers’ product ranges and profitability. A fully functioning bakery will be producing exciting new products as well as old favourites. Some of the nation’s best bakery demonstrators will be using the latest machines and raw materials from Europe’s foremost ingredient and equipment suppliers.
California Raisins are back with their Future Baker of the Year competition. The Live Event will take place on each of the 4 days of the show and is open to teams of 3 people working from colleges or companies that are working towards a recognised national bakery qualification.
And a series of Master Classes from inspirational bakers in the industry will be available every day at the BIE Theatre.
Exhibiting companies already include many of the leading suppliers to the sector,these include Benier UK, DCL Yeast, Double D Engineering, Kern, PFM, Raque Food Systems, Reiser, Rondo Doge, Britvic, Reynards, Pentagram and Tom Chandley, to name a few. And the list is growing quickly.
Daren Rose-Neale show manager, William Reed Business Media, which organises the exhibition, commented: “The recent success at IBA 2009 (International Trade Fair: World Market for Baking), Anuga, the international food fair, as well as UK events demonstrates the value of exhibitions to help companies recover from recessionary influences and improve profitability. BIE is well placed to continue the upward trend and showcase the very latest technology developments and market trends.” (389)
