Martyn Leek, editor of British Baker, said: “The quality of the entries seems to get better and better every year, making the job of the independent industry judges harder and harder. But, thanks to the quality of the independent judging process our winners are always hugely worthy – and what’s more they have a great night at the Park Lane Hilton in London.

“We look forward to seeing all the entries pile in over the next few months and we will see you all on the night.”

The Baking Industry Awards take place on 7 September, 2016. The associate sponsors include Kluman & Balter, Puratos, Haydens Bakery, AB Mauri and Wrights Bakery Ingredients.
