British Baker is delighted to announce that Vince Bamford will be joining the magazine as the new editor, effective 10 October.

Bamford, who is currently editor of William Reed’s online publication has more than 25 years’ experience as a journalist and editor, many of them in the B2B food and drink publishing sector. These have included roles on The Grocer magazine as buying and supplying editor and, prior to that, FMCG editor.

He said: “Bakery is a subject I have a deep interest in and I am relishing the opportunity to produce a title that will keep the industry informed in a timely and interesting manner.”

British Baker publisher Sonia Young said: “We are delighted to welcome Vince as editor. He has a wealth of experience in print, digital and event delivery and positive and strong relationships already with many of the bakery companies active in the UK sector. There are exciting times ahead for British Baker. We have, in Vince, an editor who will be a passionate advocate for UK bakery and one who will also take a view on how global developments will impact. We look forward to him taking the helm.”

Bamford will also be attending this year’s Baking Industry Awards on Wednesday 7 September, where he will have the opportunity to meet with delegates from across the UK’s baking industry.
