Clarity on software
AC Software Solutions would like to clarify the information supplied to British Baker for their feature that appeared in the 11 March ’New Installations’ feature, detailing a new installation at Fine Lady Bakeries. The overall recipe system was supplied by Bizerba (UK), with the software being written by AC Software Solutions. AC Software Solutions said it apologised for any misunderstanding.
Correction: In the feature ’Top of the Tiers’, in BB’s 11 March issue, it was incorrectly stated that The Tiny Cake Company was based in Staffordshire; it is in fact based in North Yorkshire.
