This free webinar, sponsored by IFF, explores how to make the most out of bakery production while keeping costs down and waste to a minimum.

Here, industry experts (see below) discuss the ways industrial bakers can maximise their output while reducing costs across the supply chain.

They demonstrate where efficiencies can be made in bakery production from better use of existing facilities to planning and logistics. They also discuss how sustainability and waste reduction fits in – after all, ploughing resources into a product that ends up in the bin isn’t very efficient. The third prong of this webinar looks at ingredients, including how to get the most out of them even if the quality waivers and ensuring consistent products every time.

Following the presentations, British Baker editor Amy North puts audience questions to the panel.
