BAKO Demonstrate at Bakers Fair.

The first combined Autumn Bakers' and Butchers’ Fair took place at Bolton Arena on Sunday 2nd October, providing an opportunity for many suppliers from the Bakery and Butchery industries to showcase their products and services. Those represented on the day included the National Association of Master Bakers, Renshaws, Frimovel and many more. The fair also hosted several interactive demonstrations and competitions.

BAKO North Western was kindly invited to provide the first demonstration of the day. The Company’s Technical Consultant, John Robertshaw, and P.R. & Marketing Executive, Nicola Wood, presented ‘How to make Cake Pops’ - essentially a cake on a stick. The demonstration showed how these eye-catching, impulse-buy treats could be made in a quick and cost-effective manner. Mark Tomlinson C.E.O. at BAKO North Western, who also attended the event commented, “It is always a pleasure to be a part of something like the Bakers’ Fair that brings the Baking Community together. We were delighted that so many people turned out to watch our demonstration, which shows how open businesses are to new and innovative ideas.” Many other demonstrations followed, including a talk by the Soil Association Trade Relations Manager, Lee Holdstock, entitled ‘Demystifying Organics’ and Keith Clarke, from Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients, who provided visitors with ideas on how their company's range of ingredients could be used to create innovative Christmas products.

Later in the day ‘Allo ‘Allo actress, Vicki Michelle and Mike Holling from Birds of Derby, compered the bakers versus butchers ‘Generation Game'. This crowd-pleasing event saw bakers trying to make sausages, and butchers decorating cakes. Much fun was had by all, Lee Batterbee and Richard Patterson, bakers from Bradwell Butchery, butchers John Mettrick of Derbyshire-based J.W. Mettrick & Son, and Brindon Addy of J. Brindon Addy in West Yorkshire took part, with the bakers crowned the winners! The Richemont competitions were also a great success, with a 45% increase in entries for these prestigious awards.
