Ingredients firm Gb Plange is helping bakers tackle business challenges such as rising costs and reducing additives by hosting a series of development days.

The next FOC Energie Development Day will focus on how to manage bread quality and costs in an inflationary market, delivered by technical experts at Gb Plange and flour miller Nelstrops. It should help bakers gain a more in-depth understanding of the function of flour and bread improvers, and how they can apply this knowledge to influence bread quality and cost.

Gb Plange general manager Marie Parnell said: "We want to enhance the industry by providing practical support and relevant advice for bakers on a range of issues that affect their business performance."
