Ingredients supplier Bakels has won two titles in the 2016 Cherwell Business Awards.

The independent baking ingredients supplier won the established Business of the Year title, and was then crowned overall Cherwell Business of the Year.

Greg Woodhead, product development manager at Bakels, said: “Bakels’ success is an acknowledgement of the hard work and commitment of the whole team over the past few years to build a forward-facing and growing company, which is a responsible and valued member of the community. 

“Working in such a competitive and fast-paced environment as the food industry can often lead to us all overlooking how much we are achieving. To have this recognised by respected peers in other companies is an incredible confirmation that we are following the right path.”

Last year Bakels launched its first consumer brand following the development of new technology.
