Bakery

Bakery encompasses many different flour-based products, which include fresh and frozen bread and rolls, semi-baked goods, croissants, cakes, pastries, doughnuts, pancakes, and dough. It also includes biscuits, cookies, crackers, tarts, and fruit pies.

Challenges in the Bakery Sector

Some challenges found within the bakery sector include:

  • Large amount of processing and production of the food product, which increase the chance of stainless steel contamination caused by processing and packaging machine failure
  • Warm and dusty environments and the need for regular cleaning of machines, conveyors and belts
  • Integrity of products after baking process (i.e. looking for holes within baked bread) or missing items (i.e. packets of cookies)
  • Increase in private label manufacture, requiring food manufacturers to be serving multiple retailers with multiple products
