The deadline to enter the 2024 Baking Industry Awards has been extended by just over a week.

Due to the volume of entries still coming in, British Baker has moved the deadline to Wednesday 1 May to ensure everyone has time to submit their entries.

This gives you even more time to tell us why you, your products, or your business are among the very best the baking industry has to offer. Entries are welcome from firms of all sizes, from major manufacturers to craft bakeries and everyone in between, including equipment and ingredient suppliers. If you’re part of this fabulous industry, we want to hear from you!
