Greggs’ Bakers Oven division has announced the results of its annual in-house bakery competition.

First prize overall went to Richard Haydon, relief baker for Bakers Oven Midlands, who was assessed on 10 products that he baked on a day-to-day basis. Second place went to Paul Norman, a bakery manager at the Bedford Bakers Oven, and third place was taken by Andy Page, bakery manager at Bury St Edmunds.

The finalists were also eligible to enter innovation awards in bread and sweet categories. Haydon won the bread innovation award for his six-seed cheesy herb tear-and-share bread.
