Synergy Flavours welcomed staff and students from the National Bakery School (NBS) to its High Wycombe headquarters this week. 

During the visit on 22 October, the Synergy team demonstrated bakery applications and shared predictions about future bakery market trends. The students were given a tour of Synergy’s bakery applications lab, saw the bakery standard ovens and observed the Synergy apps team in action.

They also watched a sensory tasting session and spoke to Synergy’s flavourists about the notes that make up everyday flavours.

“As a former student of the National Bakery School, London South Bank University, I know how important and valuable it can be to help students build their market and technical knowledge,” said Jenny Connor, Synergy senior applications technologist. “It was a pleasure to be able to share what we do and how we support the bakery market.”

Clay Niccum, from the National Bakery School, said: “We had a very productive day with the Synergy Flavours bakery team, learning about the latest bakery trends and listening to some exciting insights about the market. The NBS students have come away feeling energised and inspired.”
