Over 200 people attended the Worshipful Company of Bakers’ annual election banquet last week at the Mansion House in London, where Anthony Greenwood was elected as the new Master. He was presented with the chain of office by outgoing master Alan Willis.

Anthony Greenwood said: "During my year of office I intend to promote not just the Worshipful Company of Bakers but also the education and future of bakery students in the UK."

Anthony Greenwood has work-ed as a lecturer in bakery technology and as general manager of Stephan Machinery.

One of the key roles of The Worshipful Company is to grant bursaries to bakery students throughout the UK.
