Plus, this year we have added a new competition to try and find Britain’s Best Loaf. The new competition is open to all bakers, and there are four categories to choose from: Sourdough, Wholegrain, White, and Innovation.

The National Pie Competition, held in association with British Baker and sister-title Meat Trades Journal, and sponsored by Brook Food Processing, will also be open to both bakers and butchers. There are four categories available: Pork Pie, Savoury Pie, Steak & Kidney and Pasties.

The deadline for entries into both competitions is Friday 18 October, and you can either enter by submitting the entry form contained within this issue of British Baker, or you can enter online at www.bakersandbutchersfair.co.uk.

We are also delighted to announce that Michelle Collins, former Eastender actress and currently on Coronation Street, will be our celebrity guest on the day, and will be announcing our competition winners live on stage.

Exhibitors at the show include Benier, Rank Hovis, Tom Chandley, BFP Wholesale, Lucas Ingredients and Zeelandia.
