Baking Industry Awards are now open.

The Baking Industry Awards recognise the very best across our wide spanning industry and the Baker of the Year category represents the highest accolade in these awards. Winning this award presents a baker at the top of their game, a hands on baker whether it be an owner of their own bakery business or as a key player within an organisation. Sponsoring this award for the 6th consecutive year is a great privilege and judging entrants from across our industry who all have so much passion, knowledge and dedication to the craft of baking is a pleasure.

Over the past 5 years we have crowned some truly fantastic Bakers of the Year who are all excelling in their game and showing a continued success following their accolades, with 2018 being no exception, the supremely talented Paul Rhodes of Paul Rhodes London, produces an amazing product range. His focus on quality is infectious and the drive he has to create an innovative and exquisite range suited to consumer trends is admirable.

Now in our 25th anniversary year, here at Brook we are ourselves passionate about the bakery industry. Despite our day to day business being supplying equipment to bakeries of all sizes, we work with new start businesses and micro bakeries as well as industrial plants, we are also enthusiastic about bakery trends, products and the future of the sector. Being involved with the awards allows us to meet other like minded people who want the best for our industry and recognise the great talents we have across bakeries in the UK.

The Baker of the Year category is about the individual, despite scrutinising within the bakery environment, the award recognises the skills, dedication and achievements of the baker. Winning this award means the baker shows their sparkle; their great abilities to understand their products, their customers and exhibit the wow factor in whatever form that may take. There is no other category across UK bakery award ceremonies that looks for the best of the best and in this process we judge entrants who put themselves up for the highest recognition possible and we would encourage anyone who feels they have what it takes to put themselves forward for this tremendous accolade.
