Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients is to support UK participants in the Amoretti 2010 World Pastry Team Championship in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, in July.

Captained by Javier Mercado, from Westminster Kingsway College, Team GB will be using pallets donated by ingredients supplier Unifine.

The subject of this year’s Championship is ‘Childhood’, and the team will be required to convey this through the use of chocolate, sugar and pastillage.

“Unifine was able to supply its help and expertise for the logistics involved in this important trans-Atlantic competition, which requires a vast amount of equipment, resources and ingredients,” commented Gary Hunter, Team GB’s manager and competition judge.

The competition runs from 5-6 July and follows on from the World Pastry Forum, being held at the same venue.
