Bakery set to rise at the food show

Foodservice Australia is set to feature a new section for bakers and patissiers when it runs its Savour Patissier of the Year competition in Sydney this May.

The winner with the highest points across all categories will receive a trophy, $10,000 cash and a trip to Hong Kong for three days training with Marike van Beurden courtesy of Ravifruit.

According to Event Director Tim Collett, the new Bakery Zone will make it easier for bakers and patissiers to find the ingredients, equipment and suppliers needed to keep up with demanding customers.

"Foodservice Australia was already attracting a lot of bakers and pastrycooks, but this new section along with all the special events makes it an absolute must attend event for anyone serious about improving their business," Collett said.

Australia’s Best Pie and Pastie Competition will be returning to the show with hundreds of entries expected from bakeries around the nation. Organised by the Baking Association of Australia it enjoys a high profile amongst industry professionals and consumers.

Visitors can watch the judging live at the show, chat with judges and receive tips on making their own perfect pies and pasties. Winners will receive medals that can be displayed in their shops and the overall winners will take home trophies and prizes from the sponsors and baking association.

Of course bakeries these days sell a lot more than bread and cakes. Another special event that many will want to visit is the Café School. This is a free theatre that offers practical workshops on coffee, sandwiches, pizza and food-to-go. 

Exhibitors booked into the show and keen to meet bakers include Goodman Fielder, Unilever, Cerebos, Peerless, W&P Reedy, Mackies, Ready Bake, Mission Foods, Tasmanian Bakeries, Dalya Australia, Callebaut, Ravifruit, Unox Australia, Confoil, Kwik Lok and many more.
