Are you the next Baker of the Year? Robert Burns, of Burns the Bread, scooped the accolade last year – but time is now running out to enter the prestigious Baking Industry Awards.

The closing date is tomorrow, Friday, 10 May, and there are 11 categories to choose from for professional bakers and suppliers.

They include The Craft Business Award, Bakery Supplier of the Year, Baker of the Year, The Product Innovation Award and many more.

Collecting his award last year, Burns said: “I think the judges appreciated how much passion I have for the business and the people that work for me.”

So, do you have passion for your business and workers?
