The members of the UK team that will be representing the nation in the SIGEP Bread Cup, in Rimini, Italy next January can now be confirmed.

The four-strong team will be captained by David Mizon, of Pin Point Training & Consultancy, who won the Artistic Bread Centrepiece and Cake classes in the qualifying and selection rounds, held at the ABST conference on 12 June. He will be joined by Ian Jones, who was crowned winner of the Artisan Bread category. Steven Salt, who won the Innovation Class has had to withdraw from the team, due to commitments to the UK team in the Louis Lesaffre Cup. Garry Hindley and Stephen McGregor will make up the team, as, due to Mizon winning two classes in the qualifying rounds, a fourth team member was selected.
