The evolving bakery market has led Zeelandia to take on two new technical recruits, Andrew Gaunt and Adam Davies.

The recent appointment of David Amos as managing director, has already led to an increased focus on customer requirements, said the bakery ingredients manufacturer.

Gaunt, who has 23 years’ experience in the craft sector has joined as test baker, and Davies will be Zeelandia’s new bakery technician, with nearly 15 years’ experience across the catering and craft bakery sector.

David Amos, managing director, said: “The rate of change in the bakery market is accelerating, and plant and craft bakers are looking for well-informed technical expertise and advice and new ingredients - as well as ingredients that can be used for new products. Our new recruits, both of whom have extensive experience in quality management and product innovation will help us provide an even better service to these bakers.”
