From 30 January, British Baker will be publishing Bakers’ Review in partnership with the National Association of Master Bakers (NAMB).

Bakers’ Review will feature once a month within the pages of British Baker, covering the latest industry, legislation and regulation news, as well as general advice on issues affecting craft bakery businesses.

Chief executive of the Asso- ciation Gill Brooks-Lonican explained that it will feature the same information as it has for over a century. "For example, environmental health, legislation, health and safety, events, and any courses that we’ll be running."

This means that British Baker will be the only magazine to target bakers and bakery buyers in craft, wholesale, plant, supermarkets, convenience stores, coffee shops and foodservice. Brooks-Lonican added that "it will be nice to improve and expand" on the Association’s long-running relationship with British Baker.

The Association has been representing the interests of the craft baking industry throughout England and Wales since 1887.

l Commenting on Wallace & Gromit’s latest film, A Matter of Loaf and Death, screened on Christmas Day, Brooks-Lonican said it has done "absolute wonders for the NAMB".

The Association managed to secure the licence from Aardman Studios to be the sole supplier of edible discs for cakes, in association with the bakery-themed film. "The amount of cake toppers, t-shirts and aprons we’ve sold has been huge," she said.
