Taste Tomorrow Craftmanship

Craft is still HOT and offers added value in terms of freshness and quality perception

Lockdown sent consumers back to the high street to buy their breads and baking products at home - expectation on baked goods has grown as consumers seek out artisan and craft style products and are prepared to pay more for them.

Creating desirable products achievably.

Products that look and feel like they have come out of an artisan bakers oven or fresh truffles hand made by chocolatiers are highly desired by the consumer, however they are not always the most practical products to create. Especially given time and people restraints and the use of industrial equipment that is designed to create uniform products.

A little help from some Puratos products along with your skill can create ranges that consumers will love, providing solutions for all from craft bakers to industrial lines.
