Equipment and plant supplier Bühler Limited has joined The Federation of Bakers (FOB) as an associate member.

A division of the Switzerland-based Bühler Group, Bühler designs and equips flour mills for the baking industry. It is a specialist technology partner for process equipment and services for bakeries, as well as premix and food processing plants.

Darren Frost, sales manager - milling and baking at Bühler, said: “We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with the UK’s largest baking companies with the opportunities and services that come with The Federation of Baker’s associate membership.”

Gordon Polson, director of the FOB, added: “We are delighted to welcome Bühler as a new associate member, and hope to support them as they continue to grow their global business.”

In May the FOB focused its annual conference on the challenges facing the food industry.
