The Federation of Bakers has announced a new associate member – Toolbox Software GmbH.

Toolbox is a German-based company supplying more than 750 bakeries worldwide with its Dispotool system that is used for managing product picking in bakeries. Toolbox said the paperless system reduces dispatch costs and offers transparency and reliability.

George Polson, director of the Federation of Bakers, said the organisation was “delighted to welcome Toolbox as a new associate member and hopes to support them as they continue to grow their business”.

Toolbox joins other Federation of Bakers associate members including AB Mauri UK, Baker Perkins, Bakels and Edme.

Christoph Kueckes, sales manager for Toolbox, said the company looked forward to “continue strengthening its relationship with the UK’s largest baking companies with the opportunities and services that come with the Federation of Baker’s associate membership”.

The Federation of Bakers comprises nine member companies running 33 bakeries in the UK and supplying the majority of the bread consumed in the market.
