Zeelandia UK has presented 20 students from the National Bakery School, London, with copies of the Craft Bakers Association (CBA) Book of Breadmaking as part of a presentation and Q&A session.

The presentation, held at the London Southbank University, gave first-year students the opportunity to hear from industry professionals about the UK baking industry.

Presentations from Zeelandia UK were conducted by David Amos, managing director, and Michael Stimpson, marketing manager, on current trends, product ranges and the history of the industry. Daniel Carr, CBA Laser president, joined Amos during his talk and presented each student with the book.

Elaine Thompson, course director at the National Bakery School, thanked the Zeelandia team and Daniel Carr for taking time out of their busy schedules.

“It’s a real inspiration for the students to know they have the backing and support from the industry,” she added.

Amos, who is also a former president of the Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees (ABST), ended the day by encouraging students and lecturers to become members of the ABST and attend the annual conference in June.
