Ingredients supplier Zeelandia and Glovers Bakery held two open days, on 18 and 19 May at the Glovers shop in Leyland, to promote speciality breads.

Zeelandia provided technical support, promotional material and ingredients. The focus was on its Prokorn, Fiesta Corn, Exakt Ciabatta and O’mega products. The Exakt Ciabatta was made into squares and Fiesta Corn into tins, rolls and cobs. O’mega took the shape of a heart as well as tins and rolls.

Tony Bain of Glovers said: "The customer response on the day and the feedback since has been amazing!" On the back of this success, Glovers is hoping to hold more open days at some of its other shops.
