Fareham-based Rich Products recently hosted a visit from members of the British Confectioners’ Association (BCA).

Forty-six members, who attended the two-day trip, were taken on a tour around the bakery site and were offered tastings and technical presentations.

"It’s a lot to organise for so many people to come to visit a site, but David Powell, head of innovation at Rich Products, and his team did a superb job," said BCA chairman Robert Ditty. "It was an excellent trip and everyone went away having learnt something."
