How our test bakery works and how we can help you

In our state of the art test bakery, we have a hand on approach to develop the recipes and testing them right on spot.

After an initial planning process with the client, the recipes are transformed to bakery products that will be tested to find the perfect end product. The new bakery product are planned to provide a taste sensation while being visually attractive for the intended target groups. Products are developed in line with the facilities and resources available at the clients bakery, ensuring scalability  in the eventual target market.

Baronfoodtech will also give the client valuable insights to new trends from other markets, helping clients  understand the driving forces behind the new trends and the key requirements behind successfully launching new bakery products in their local market.

The client can participate in the product planning process on spot in the test bakery or remotely through video communications. After some (from 2 weeks to few months), you will have a unique recipe and bakery product ready to be launched for your target markets.

Industrial baking customer success story:

In just 6 months Finnish baking consultants developed what is now the number 1 Gluten Free bread range on the Russian market

The famously known construction company Sapsan from Russia decided to diversify their business to bakery business as well. The plan was to launch a gluten free bread range with up to 7 different alternatives. Baron Foodtech was the chosen partner for developing the bread range from scratch, where quality, innovation and cost efficiency were key factors in the decision making process. “We don’t offer ready ingredients as industry leaders in bakery consulting do, but instead we do custom recipes from raw ingredients, how to prepare ingredients and how to actually bake. Real and traditional slow baking in its purest form is our motto. Not only do you get a unique product, but you do also easily cut your costs with 50 % when you know the correct recipes and processes.” – comments Mikko Lehtinen from Baron Foodtech 

The end product was the Foodcode brand with 7 different bread alternatives launched 6 months after the planning process started. Foodcode is today the number 1 gluten free bread range in Russia.
