American Pan UK – A Gold Sponsor at Scottish Baker’s Conference

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scottish Bakers Conference for 2020 has been postponed indefinitely.

The annual Scottish Bakers Conference is a 2-day event, taking place this year on 8-9 May at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow, Scotland. The conference is a premier event for individuals within the Scottish baking industry, with a large exhibition show and multiple dinners and receptions, all providing a great opportunity for networking with suppliers, colleagues, and friends.

Taking place at the conference will be the Scottish Baker of the Year competition. In this competition, participants will submit up to ten bakery products where they will rival to see who has the best baked goods in all of Scotland. The competition categories include biscuit, bread (traditional and sourdough), individual cake, morning roll (including French and Danish style), savoury, scones, and celebration, as well as the all-new free-form category.

“The American Pan UK team is very proud indeed to be a first-time gold sponsor of the all-new free-form category,” states Steve Eaton, Retail & UK Industrial Sales Manager for American Pan UK. “The opportunity for these participants to showcase their greatest products is huge. We are anxious to see all of the entries and to catch a glimpse of the impact that so many talented bakers have on the Scottish baking industry.”

Entry to the Scottish Baker of the Year competition is free to Scottish Bakers members and £195 (+vat) for non-members. To learn more about the event or how to become a member, please visit https://scottishbakers.org/.
