Later this month, on the 19 May, hundreds of delegates will make their way to the Queens Hotel in Leeds to attend the inaugural Baking Forum as the event looks to put into focus the challenges facing the baking industry and looks ahead to delivering future growth.
“It’s a joy to see the Baking Industry coming together in person, in such numbers. This strong turnout for the inaugural Baking Forum is an affirmation of the huge relevance of the Forum’s content and the space it provides for the exchange of knowledge, to help delegates get the most from their businesses,” commented Andrew Pyne, Chief Executive of the Federation of Bakers.
The Baking Forum will be attended by delegates from many of the industry’s key players including AB Mauri; Allied Bakeries; Baker & Baker; Carrs Flour Mills; Federation of Bakers and others.
Hot topics of the day will feature ‘The UK economic outlook and what it means for the UK Food & Beverage Industry’; ‘Trends, consumer behaviours and innovations for the baking industry’; ‘The future of baking’; ‘Alternative energy sources in the UK Food & Beverage Industry’ and also ‘A conversation with Roger Harrabin’ led by Andrew Pyne, Chief Executive of The Federation of Bakers.
