Gwynedd-based Cae Groes Bakery has signed an agreement with The Food Technology Centre, which will see it assist with funding a new technical post at the firm.

The bakery is seeking applications from any food graduates or individuals with significant experience of the food industry, and that have an understanding of the importance of quality systems.

The new post, funded through the EU/Welsh Government KITE project, will enable the successful applicant to brainstorm new product ideas, while also providing them with hands-on experience in developing and supervising quality control procedures.
Gwyn Williams, managing director, explained: “Cae Groes bakery started in the early 1900s with a small bakery in the hills of Llanllechid. We are now supplying a number of the major retailers and are looking for the new recruit to assist the whole team here to continue the work that we’ve built up for well over a century.”

Martin Jardine, manager, The Food Technology Centre, said its team of food technologists would provide continued mentoring support to the successful applicant. “We would also like to add a call of action of our own, to any established food business out there interested in such a partnership, to also get in touch with us,” she added.
