Time to stand up and win over Government apathy

Dear readers,
Often heard is the lone voice, that industry issues are hardly addressed or demands adequately represented; but rarely a unied one. The bakery industry is a casualty most of the times when the Union or State budgets are announced. Baked goods today are a dietary need, no longer a luxury one to be weighed in the same scale as other government-cofferlling sectors. Today, lifestyle changes are turning yesteryear luxury products into common fare. Seldom does the industry get recognition on its own merit or relief by way of taxation. Subsidies have always been by default and not by design; sadly though, given the fact that it is the largest among food-processing sectors. With so much positive upheaval and investor interest in the sector, it is only time that the industry stood up to be seen and to be heard. Ination, excise hike, fuel hike these are all major impediments to fast-track growth. But the bright side is a growing youth population with high disposable income; new and big consumers who will keep the growth story steady. Multiple trade bodies and a non-cohesive approach make it equally difcult to win favours from policy makers. Well-structured trade bodies like BAKE in Kerala, who besides adopting a self-regulated approach, have been successful in lobbying effectively at the State level. Our cover story brings you a bouquet of views on how and why government apathy needs to be addressed. This besides all our regulars and for all those who could not attend the Live Bakery Theatre demonstrations at the Bakery Business 2010 Show, we bring you recipes from the leading bakery and pastry chefs. Happy reading!

Parle, largest biscuit maker, now sets eyes on snacks biz

The countrys top biscuit maker Parle Products is restructuring its snacks division to emerge as a signicant player in the Rs 4,000crore market. Snacks is one segment where we are trailing behind and have not been able to make much progress in the last three years since we forayed into the segment, according to a report in The Economic Times quoting a top ofcial. Parle Products, which recently beat Britannia to become the countrys largest biscuit maker, hopes to become the second largest snacks player with a onefth share in the market by the end of the year. The Mumbaibased company at present has only a 5% share in the snacks market, which is dominated by PepsiCo Frito-Lay, which holds almost 60% of the market share with brands such as Lays, Kurkure and Cheetos. Other top players in the market include ITC, Haldirams and Balaji Wafers. Apart from snacks, Parle Products is also betting on the health food segment as the next growth driver. After the success of Actit Digestive Marie and Actit Sugarfree Cream Cracker biscuits, the company now plans to roll out more such products under the Actit sub-brand. Parle Products dominates Indias Rs 12,000-crore biscuit market with a 45% share and is the countrys second largest confectionery maker after Perfetti, with a 15% share in the Rs 2,500-crore market.

Global Bakery Products Market to Reach US$410 Billion by 2015

looking for low prices that would allow them to stretch their nances The recession resulted in price increase of bakery raw materials in the last few years. This coupled with rise in energy costs, resulted in the subsequent increase of bakery product prices. The market for bread and other bakery products suffered marginal decline during 2008. On the other hand, recession brought forth opportunities for cereals. Consumers looking for best value preferred the more reasonably priced breakfast cereal to other morning goods. Several bakers adopted a more careful approach during the recessionary period in terms of product innovations, as consumers were hesitant about spending money on new, unknown and untried products. Several companies eliminated preservatives and articial avors in their products in a bid towards image changeover as makers of healthier and natural bakery products. About 35% of the global cereal product launches in the year 2009 claimed to be functional cereals with health benets. The market for breakfast products in the UK sailed past the recession with ease, and the country witnessed an increase in the number of bakery businesses during the period. Baking industry in the US remained moderately unaffected by the economic crisis. Bakers did however, experience decline in sales in private labels, particularly for products that were not promoted. Europe, driven by Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Finland and Sweden among others constitutes the largest regional market worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Bakery Products. The United States and Latin America trail behind as the next important market in terms of overall size. However, with respect to long term growth potential, the

he global baking industry is currently facing opportunities as well as challenges created by the economic crisis. The still volatile nancial scenario is changing the way bakers approach their businesses. On the consumption front, similar to the US, the bakery industry in Europe is witnessing a decline in traditional bakery products. However, the decrease in demand is being offset by rising purchase of bite-sized sweet goods, on-the-go breads, between-meal snacks, easy-to-carry sandwiches and such other products. There is an increase in the number of on-thego bakery product introductions and new avors to meet the requirements of the extremely mobile population of today. With consumer preferences undergoing tremendous changes, bakers are literally on their toes suiting the product rollouts to the dynamic consumer preferences. Meeting the demands of the fast paced consumer lifestyles are singleserve, small-size bakery products, leading to an increasing demand for breads and rolls, donuts and pastries. There has also been a noticeable shift towards natural and healthy bakery products comprising of vitamins, whole grains and bers. Bakers introduced organic baked goods, breakfast cereals, breads and biscuits, enriched with nutritional and natural ingredients in single-serve and portable packaging. Private label products gained considerable importance in retailing strategy of savory snacks, in spite of the disadvantage of ownership and management of inventory. In recent years, however, the bakery industry has been plagued with high costs of production and increase in raw material costs in real terms in many markets. Intense price pressure is another feature of the bakery products marketplace in many developed markets of the world.

Asia-Pacic market is projected to take the lead, expanding at the highest CAGR of more than 5.0% through 2015. The segment Bread/Rolls represents the largest and most popular bakery product.
Product appearance signicantly inuences impulse purchases of bakery items, and therefore constitutes an important consideration in the purchase of bakery products. Next to appearance is the aroma and price. Attractive displays play a vital role in making a purchase decision. Pre baked and freshly delivered products are among the fastest growing segments, while frozen dough and scratch mix products exhibit slow growth. On the regional front, the bakery industry in the US underwent signicant changes owing to steady changes in consumer trends, which primarily leaned towards health, convenience and indulgence. Bakers were able to leverage these pockets of growth by capitalizing on the indulgence trend of consumers through suitable product innovations that focused on health and included functional variants. In-store bakeries are increasingly gaining signicance in the bakery products market, especially in the sale of fresh, unwrapped bakery items. This trend is obvious in the continued expansion of major food retailing chains such as Tesco in the UK, and Carrefour in France. In developed countries the increased demand for functional foods has prompted companies to develop value-added baked goods. The global market for bakery products is being increasingly consolidated through the penetration of major multinational food companies. As a result, international brands like Oreos of Nabisco are expected to explore into hitherto unexplored territories. With the tumbling of the global economy in the year 2009, an increasing number of consumers are pinching pennies and Asia-Pacic market is projected to take the lead, expanding at the highest CAGR of more than 5.0% through 2015. The segment Bread/Rolls represents the largest and most popular bakery product, while the Morning Goods segment is likely to emerge as the fastest growing market over the assessment period 2007-2015. Key market participants in the report include Bahlsen GmbH & Co. KG, BAB, Inc, Britannia Industries Ltd, Brueggers Enterprises, Inc, Einstein Noah Restaurant Group Inc, George Weston Foods Ltd, Grupo Bimbo, S.A.B. de C.V, Hostess Brands, Inc, Kellogg Company, McDonalds Corporation, Nestle Chile, Riviana Foods Inc, Sara Lee Corporation, Strauss Group Ltd, The Great Canadian Bagel Ltd, Parle Products Pvt.

How to Start a Bakery

ou need to have the basic know-how and expertise to run a thriving bakery business. Besides, a lot depends on the scale of operations. You can operate on a large scale, medium scale or just stick to being a small homespun unit. But you need to understand the nuances of starting and running a bakery because the dynamics differ from other businesses. To run a successful bakery, youll have to don two hats: that of an outstanding baker and a shrewd businessman. Besides you need to have basic knowledge of accounting, human resources and management. This is because bakeries are involved in both retailing and manufacturing operations. You may decide to altogether set-up a new bakery, begin one in-house or purchase an existing one. In all three cases youll have to do a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis. Dont go at it alone. Youll have to take legal opinion. Also consult an accountant to make a study of estimated costs and future earnings. Work out at what point youll break even and when you can expect prots. The most vital thing to consider while starting a bakery is the location. Ensure that the location has a wide potential customer base. Around 1000-2000 families should serve your purpose. Also, you need to size up your competition. Find out how many established bakeries are already operating in the vicinity. This should tell you whether its viable to begin another bakery in the area. While deciding on a location, also gure out if there are schools, colleges or movie theatres in close proximity. Competition is not necessarily a bad thing. Competition may also unintentionally end up sending business your way. Its all about how you use your marketing strategy to turn your competition into an advantage.

Starting a bakery may prove to be highly satisfying but is certainly no cakewalk

Never mind the size of your bakery, your decor should be pleasing to the eye. The lighting and array of your products should be just right to capture interest. Before purchasing any equipment consult a professional to make sure that theyre in good working condition. As far as advertising is concerned, begin before you set up shop. Send out pamphlets and feelers to homes in the locality. Once youre all set and raring to go you can also put in an advertisement in the local newspaper. The next important decision is pricing. Dont price your products too low because you have to leave a sufcient margin for prots. Keep a daily account of expenses. Try to narrow down your suppliers to those who offer the best rates while maintaining an acceptable quality standard. Needless to mention, always buy in bulk for better rates. The most valuable resource no matter what your scale of operations is manpower. Employees can make or break your business. Take pains while recruiting and train them well. Take inventory at regular intervals and maintain records of supplies and spillage. Maintain a proper system for keeping accounts of cash inows and outows, utilization of provisions and getting rid of stale stocks. Starting a home bakery is relatively less complicated. The equipment you need is less sophisticated and you can cater to a number of retailers. Though you need a license to operate, with the co-operation of purchasers you can wait until you recover a few of your costs to get one. While operating a bakery you need to keep control over your costs. Watch every penny. Make sure every customer leaves happy. This is the perfect recipe for a booming bakery business.

FMs excise preheat turns off bakers

Bakery industry, the largest among food processing sectors continues to get a raw deal. Manoj Kumar and Vijaya Kandpal strives to understand why such government apathy to an industry with significant contribution
nion Budget proposals, announced by nance minister Pranab Mukehrjee in February, will adversely impact the bakery industry. The increase in excise duty from 8% to 10% will make products such as biscuits, cakes, and pastries costlier the next nancial year. This will put a spoke in demand from consumers, thereby affecting the earnings of bakers. The Budget has nothing much to offer. Prices for raw materials have gone up because of ination. Prices of bread will go high, which will affect the industry as it is the most consumed bakery product, Raghuram, director at bakery equipment maker CS Aerotherm, echoes the concerns of the industry. In its pre-Budget wish list, Indias apex body of industry ASSOCHAM had recommended that bakery and confectionery items must be exempted from central excise duty. This move will save the industry from

maintenance of cumbersome records and procedural formalities under the Central Excise laws. An exemption can be given based on turnover as is given to small-scale units under Central excise laws which, at present, is Rs 1.50 crore per annum, the trade lobby had suggested. But the nance minister did not heed to the most pressing issues of the industry while he put together the countrys Budget for the nancial year 2011-12. Bakery industry, which has been severely impacted by rising fuel prices besides food ination, was in fact expecting relief in many areas from the nance minister. I expected the Budget would have reduced excise duty on bakery products, says Raghuram. Ination has raised the prices of the bakery products and tax has aggravated the problem, concurs Mirza Ali who runs Sarvi Bakers in Hyderabad. Not many in the industry expected the Budget to be so harsh. I expected tax cuts in the imported and also in the domestic bakery products. We also expected the Budget to lower the taxes on bakery products and key ingredients like oil, sugar and our.

Tax is a big burden, Mirza Ali voices the wishes of thousands of small-scale bakers across India. We also wanted the budget to include stability in the market and pricing, he adds. The worst signal for the bakery industry came in the form of an increase in the prices of petrol and diesel. This would denitely make transportation of raw material as well as nished good cost more to the manufacturers. The problem with the bakery industry is that there are no concessions given to the industry on the raw material. For instance, wheat is a raw material for maida which in turn is a key ingredient for bakery products, N Krishnamoorthi, general manager at raw material maker Ruchi Soya Industries, told Bakery Biz.

Excise duty - an industry dampner

Overall, the Budget tends to do a balancing act between lifting economic growth and containing scal decit. Bakers are not encouraged by the government. There is 16% tax on cakes in spite of its high supply and demand level. The government should look at it practically. The industry makes Rs 200-300 crore a year. There should be reasonable taxation on bakery products, Krishnamoorthi adds. As cakes, pastries and confectionery items are now excisable; consumers will need to spend more for these items. However, by rationalising tax structure, the nance minister has given some tax relief to the salaried people who mostly belong to the middle class. Income tax exemption for salaried class has given some relief to them, who have been reeling under high prices of food prices, because they will

I dont know much about the associations but even without them government should listen to the expectations of the bakers, says Mirza Ali. However, Krishnamoorthi believes that the government will only help if they see a company generating revenue. Revenue comes from the tax paid on raw materials. The moment raw materials come from the bakery industry it will surely help the industry to generate more revenue, he substantiates. Raghuram supports this view. He believes the government must reduce taxes on raw materials. There should be tax exemption on raw materials of bakery products, he asserts. Mirza Ali, on his part, favours some

Fighting a lone battle

The bakery industry of India is a varied cluster of manufacturers. While the brute majority of them belong to the unorganised sector, a small but burgeoning number of them are corporate entities evolving into behemoths. It remains to be seen what these big manufacturers will do in order to offset the pressure put on them by Budget 2011. The reduction in surcharge on taxes to 5 % from 7.5 % would help corporates while there is a slight increase in minimum alternate tax (MAT) from 18% to 18.5%.

We want to encourage and build entrepreneurs in the bakery industry

When a highly technical bakery expert and a seasoned marketing professional team up, an industry devoid of technical and marketing expertise is bound to gain. Sarita Nair meets well known industry duo, Vishakha Shroff a bakery industry veteran and Prakash Nair, a seasoned marketing professional to get a peek in to their new venture. Besides plugging this essential market void, the duo aims to facilitate entry of new investors while helping build scale and quality standards among existing players and more
Let me begin with the most obvious question, why did you decide to move on? What was the driver behind starting something on your own?
Monginis has taught me many invaluable lessons and I have thoroughly enjoyed my tenure of four years there. However, I have nurtured within me, for many years now, the dream to do something on my own for the bakery industry. The time is right and the market ready and waiting to be explored. The consumer today is more informed and aware of the tastes and senses of their requirement. The Indian market is opening up to the bakery industry. You would nd a lot of positive developments in the industry like new entrants who are carving a niche rather than the traditional bakery business, investors willing to put in their money in the latest global technology, young Indians who want to do something different in the market etc. And this is when I thought why not do something to support and encourage them, why not build entrepreneurs. That is how my partner, Mrs. Vishakha Shroff and I thought of this business venture. She brings in the technical knowhow, having spent around twenty ve years as the technical expert with Monginis and I bring to the table my experience in sales and marketing in this industry.

combination of technology and co marketing. m

M Ms. Shroff (Smiles): They call it the L Lethal Combination! Mr. Nair: We both have a similar vision an that makes working together exciting. and

W What is the business model that you are w working on?

M Mr. Nair: We are working on a 3 tier m model. The rst module we are looking at revolves around live bakeries which w would be around 300-350sq ft in space. It incorporates everything involved from ba baking to the nishing. The technology us used has a multi-utility unit and will gi give owners the power to control the pr production within their premises. The pr products can be replenished at the location depending on the demand. The second module involves a larger space of 3000-5000sq ft. This set up is equipped to meet the demands of 15-20 smaller bakeries in the vicinity. The third module involves manufacturing units which are much larger and would be able to cater to the demands of around 100-200 retail outlets. Our brand of products will be manufactured, sold and promoted in above outlets. Ms. Shroff: We are also exploring product specic imports and some of the units may cater to this type of product demand.

We were then joined by the lady herself, Mrs. Vishakha Shroff.

Ms. Shroff, how does it feel to do something on your own after giving so many years to an organization? Freedom is the rst word that comes to my mind. Freedom to do what I want, the way I want to! Isnt that the beauty of having your own business? I cant wait to share all I have been fortunate to learn in my career with anyone who is willing to learn and do something challenging. Maybe ve years back I would have hesitated to do this. But today, I feel the time is right.

What changes do you hope to bring to the bakery industry through your initiative?
Mr. Nair: Along with encouraging entrepreneurs to set up new Greeneld projects, we are also looking at revamping the unorganized bakeries. There are many standalone bakeries in major cities as well as Tier-II cities like Nagpur, Vapi, and Kolhapur etc which churn out amazing products and have a huge following in their domain. The willingness to learn and upgrade themselves is worth admiring in these folks. All they need is a little support, guidance and some updation on the latest trends in bakery, increasing shelf

life etc. We hope to give them the required support in their business through consultation by sharing with them knowledge that we have gathered over the years. Ms. Shroff: One needs to have an eye for spotting talent and nurturing it. I remember many years ago there was a roadside vendor in Mumbai who gave these interesting shapes to his sugar candy and thus, attracted a lot of customers. I approached him and asked him if he would be interested in working for the company. He was a wonderful asset because he would create these lovely gures out of sugar and our cakes would have anything from handmade Easter bunnies to football players. He was very good with his hands. One can never underestimate the source of talent. This is what we would like to be involved in. Support anyone who has a dream to grow in this industry and nurture them.

When do you intend to roll out the modules and the school?
Mr. Nair: The first module will be rolled out by the end of March with our first set-up in Navi Mumbai. We shall make a formal announcement of the brand and inauguration soon. Ms. Shroff: We hope to put the baking school in place before the end of the next quarter.

What kind of response are you receiving from your colleagues in the industry?
Ms. Shroff: We are quite overwhelmed with the response we have been receiving from all around. Everyday we are approached by people with the zeal to do more. There are existing bakers who would like to revamp their set-up; there are businessmen who want to invest in our new modules. We have companies approaching us to use their products and bakery equipment for our bakery school. Then there are who wish to contribute something back to the industry by sharing their knowledge and experience at the school. The vibes are indeed very positive. Mr.Nair: The industry is ready for a change and we are happy to receive their support and encouragement towards our initiative. Their radiance, excitement and enthusiasm were contagious. A duo on a new journey, that promises to bring about change, one that seems to be as fruitful for others in the business as for them. Denitely a space to watch out for in the near future.

You did mention about sharing your knowledge and talent, how do you plan to go about that other than through the business?
Mr. Nair: Skilled manpower in this industry is hard to nd. We look forward to start a baking school in Mumbai and then grow to few other cities where one can learn the skills of baking as a fresher or those already in the business can choose to update themselves with the latest both in terms of product and technology. The staff of a bakery would be exposed and trained in production as well as marketing and also with the soft skills required in this kind of industry where the business is completely customer driven.

One can never underestimate the source of talent. This is what we would like to be involved in. Support anyone who has a dream to grow in this industry and nurture them.

ccess to good quality food has been mans endeavour from the earliest days of human existence. As the age old adage goes, we are what we eat. Research over the ages has shown that our nutritional status, health, physical and mental faculties depend on the food we eat. But what exactly denes food quality? While nutritional value of food seems the most obvious answer, it is not the complete denition of food quality. Safety of food we consume is of equal importance. Food safety implies the absence or safe levels of chemicals, microbes and additives in the food. Because food products are by nature perishable and have a limited shelf life especially bakery products - ensuring safety of food products calls for multiple levels of testing. Some of the Testing that is regularly required by the baking industry is mentioned below:

Quality & Safety Testing of Food in the Bakery Industry

Energy / Calories (Kcal) Carbohydrates Sugars Proteins Fats Saturated Fats Trans Fat Cholesterol Dietary Fibre Vitamins Minerals

Accelerated Shelf Life Study

The constituents of baked products like fat, wheat and sugar, in either the raw material or the nished products form; are a suitable medium for microbiological proliferation. Food can be subjected to microbiological contamination at any stage of the life cycle; right form contamination of raw material, during preparation, during storage, during transportation etc. Micro-organisms have the notorious quality of spread through a variety of vectors thereby causing cross-contamination which can happen at all stages of the life cycle. For a food manufacturer it is critical that proper Hygiene be maintained and ensured at all these stages. Microbiological Testing of raw food as well as nished products is therefore, necessary to ensure the food quality and safety. Microbiological analysis includes checking for presence or acceptable levels of micro-organisms. Some of the frequently tested microbes are as follows: Total Bacterial Load Coliforms E. Coli Salmonella Shigella Staphylococcus aureus Yeast and Mould

Microbiological Testing

A variety of baked products have gained mass acceptance due to their delicious taste and better keeping quality. The life of a product can be established by doing Accelerated Shelf Life Study. In this study the Organoleptic as well as Microbiological suitability for human consumption is analyzed over a period of time under accelerated conditions to determine for how long after production and in what conditions the food product is suitable for consumption.

Chemical Testing

Nutritional Labelling

As per the PFA Rules, it is compulsory for the Nutritional Information or Nutritional Facts per 100 gm or 100ml or per serving (where amount in gm or ml per serving measure needs to be mentioned) of the product should be given on the label. Nutritional Labelling essentially species percentage or amount (in grams or milligrams) of various nutritional components. This informs health-conscious consumers of the quality of food being consumed. Nutritional Labelling involves the analysis of the food for all or some of the following Nutritional parameters:

Chemical testing of food and bakery products includes checking for a wide array of organic and inorganic chemical parameters which indicate their suitability for consumption: The qualitative analysis of Food products can be broadly divided into the following: Proximate Analysis where general biochemical parameters are analysed (like Ash, Water / Acid Insoluble Ash, Total Solids, Starch and other nutritional parameters mentioned above) Ultimate Analysis where specic elements or compounds are analysed. (For e.g. heavy metals, pesticides, food additives or colorants, preservatives etc.) Some chemical parameters which have a special application in bakery industry are Trans fat: Due to the use of hydrogenated vegetable fats or bakery shortening.

Keeping It Fresh: Baggers and Closures

ess than a century ago, bread was sold unwrapped. Not until the rst slicer was introduced in the late 1920s did it become common to wrap bread to preserve its freshness and moisture. The rst slicing machine was introduced to the baking industry in 1928, and it still stands today as a hallmark invention weve all heard the saying, the greatest thing since sliced bread. Bread was originally overwrapped with opaque waxed paper, and then companies turned to transparent packaging such as cellulose lm. One of the major problems with overwrapping bread this way was that once the packaging was open, it was difcult to close it again. Bags have been used the last 50 years, and reclosable clips and ties allow consumers to re-secure bags after use so that product stays fresher longer. Today, bags premade from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) are the most common materials for packaging bread and buns. LDPE is a lower-cost option compared with cast polypropylene, which also is used for packaging bread. LDPE provides a good moisture barrier, but its optics generally are not as clear as the cast polypropylene nor its touch as crisp as cellophane.

Baggers and closure systems feature new designs that allow smoother operation, less downtime and quicker changeovers
environmentally friendly systems that use minimal electricity, compressed air and materials, he added. Formost Fuji offers two models for bagging bread. The GTS is our top-of-the-line bagger model with a servo overhead option, easy-to-operate touch screen, gentle product handling and the latest computer and electronic systems, Mr. Gunnell. The second, the FFB model from Formost Fuji, is widely used for tortillas as well as bread, buns, rolls and other varieties of bakery products. With the focus on sustainability, Formost Fuji has worked to reduce the electrical and air consumption of its machines, according to Mr. Gunnell. In addition, he noted that the company continues to make improvements to sanitation, adhering to BISSC with a 3A Diary-certied model available. Whereas Formosts baggers use a paddle that pushes the loaf into the bag, AMF Bakery Systems two high-speed automated bread baggers the Mark 60 and the Mark 75 employ scoops that pull the bag over the product, according to Larry Gore, director, sales and marketing, AMF, Richmond, VA. AMF redesigned its bread baggers during the past couple years, and its scoops are now driven by a patented pendulum scoop drive system. The pendulum rotary system does not stop and start, greatly reducing maintenance requirements and also increasing longevity of the machine as well as the speeds at which it can operate versus the traditional camoperated scoop drive, Mr. Gore observed. As their names suggest, the Mark 60 can bag up to 60 1-lb loaves per minute but generally runs in the 50 to 55 bags per minute range, while the Mark 75 is designed to sustain speeds of 60 to 65 bags per minute with capability of up to 75 1-lb

Bread baggers

When it comes to bagging equipment, bakers desire reliable machinery and automation systems to eliminate downtime, quick and easy changeover capability, and service and parts availability for ongoing maintenance, according to Dennis Gunnell, vice-president, sales and marketing, Formost Fuji Corp., Woodinville, WA. Bakers are also looking for

loaves per minute. The two baggers operate using the same principles, with the main difference being the robustness of the equipment, according to Mr. Gore. The Mark 75 is built heavy duty for the higher rotation speeds, he noted. AMF also added a patented usher discharge conveyor, eliminating the usher bar on its baggers. The ighted conveyor moves product away from the scoops so the next product can be bagged. One of the problems is a usher bar at high speeds has a tendency to kick the product harder, causing it to turn over, Mr. Gore said. Our usher conveyor sets the product down gently onto the conveyor. The THG 2000 bread bagger from The Henry Group is a mechanical machine that the company has manufactured for many years, and it is tried, true and proven, according to Darren Jackson, vice-president, business development. The Henry Group, Greenville, TX. Our bagger is really smooth, and we put a timing belt on it to keep the bagger from working against itself, he said. The unit can bag up to 70 loaves per minute, but slicers generally are not able to reach that speed. Slicers usually run about 45 to 55 loaves per minute, thus they are the bottleneck, according to Mr. Jackson. One of the more critical operations for the baggers is getting the mouth of the bag open and holding it that way until the loaf is bagged. Anything you can do to reduce bag utter and keep that bag stable and from moving around will improve the bagging situation, Mr. Jackson said. The bread bagger also features automatic bag changers.

The wicket table carries with two sets of bags and a photo eye monitors the current wicket. When one wicket empties, the table slides to the next position and keeps bagging without interruption, according to Mr. Jackson. The automatic changer enables the operator to do a more such as run two baggers, he said. Automatic rotary bag feed tables from Formost Fuji facilitate fast changeovers and wicket changes, according to Mike Day, Northwest regional manager, Formost Fuji. This works well with just-in-time manufacturing because of the exibility it offers, he added. AMFs baggers offer a precise bag ination system that injects air into the bag. Much work has been done over the past couple years to get a precision system that inates the bag each time, and the wicket table designs have been reworked to give better support to the bags so the blow-up is more precise, Mr. Gore explained. AMF also improved the electronics on its packaging machines as well as the electronic synchronization between the bagger, the slicer and other upstream equipment, he said. This eliminates mechanical connections between the machines, thus saving on maintenance and downtime, Mr. Gore continued. Anytime you have mechanical chain drives, or even belt or shaft drives, you have maintenance you must do on them. Our machines are basically electronically synchronized with each using their own separate drives. Additionally, the electronics package offers recipe-driven control systems so operators can set up the bagger and slicer

for different products easily. There are still some set-ups such as guides that have to be done mechanically, but the majority of set-up can be completed with the push of a button at the operator interface, changing from one product to another, including speeds, lattice set-up at the slicer, etc., Mr. Gore explained. When bakeries acquire slicers and baggers together from AMF, the equipment manufacturer offers a new common conveyor between the two pieces of equipment. This permits smoother transfer of the sliced loaves to the bagger, allowing higher speeds and gentler handling of the loaves, he said. The Henry Group integrates both the slicer and tyer with its baggers. The discharge conveyor on the slicer is slavedriven off the bagger, so once it passes the blades, we drive off the slicer into the bagger, Mr. Jackson said. This is necessary to get accurate timing between the two pieces of equipment and because you have a ighted conveyor to feed the scoop bay. Also, every new bagger the company builds is equipped with a network switch that ties into a bakerys central system. Because of this, all baggers will have dedicated IP addresses. The Henry Group also incorporates color touchscreen panels on all of its baggers because that is what customers want, according to Mr. Jackson. In addition to building its own bread bagger, the company also reconditions older bread baggers. If a company has an old Mark 50, we gut it and build them basically a new bagger, but it costs about 20% less than a new bagger, Mr. Jackson added. AMF, the OEM for the Mark 50, is in the R&D process of developing a bun bagging machine, according to Mr. Gore.

added. The driving force is that information is power, and if you know what is going on what products are running, how fast they are running and if there are any issues on the line you can continually make better decisions, he said. Slicers are not a bottleneck for bun baggers, according to Mr. LeCrone. Its baggers are capable of running 70-plus packages per minute, depending on package type, and its slicers can process product for up to 100 bags per minute, he stated. LeMatics baggers are versatile and can create a variety of package formations. Changeovers are straightforward and fairly quick, and they can be automated to the level that a bakery needs. We automate what makes sense and leave manual where that makes sense, Mr. LeCrone said. It is not always cost effective to put a motor on all parts. We have to be cost competitive, so sometimes it makes sense to have manual guide adjustments to keep costs in line.

Closure systems

Bun packaging

We put a lot of effort into re-energizing our bun bagging business, said Dale (D.J.) LeCrone, c.e.o. of LeMatic, Inc.,

After bagging, the product enters a closure unit that is generally integrated to the bagger. It applies either a tab lock closure or twist tie on the neck of the LDPE bag. Instead of plastic clips or twist ties, a bakery could opt for tamperevident tape, but this closure system is not as popular as the other two options. The decision to use either tab locks or twist ties is generally one the bakery will make based on a marketing decision, according to Mr. LeCrone. Mr. Jackson said certain closures are preferred in particular markets, noting that twist ties are generally used by bakers in the South. Next year will mark the half-century mark for the rst automated twist tyer built by Burford Corp., Maysville, OK. The company developed its rst mechanically driven twist tyers in 1961, according to Don Ivey, sales account manager,

The driving force is that information is power, and if you know what is going on how fast they are running you can continually make better decisions, Dale (D.J.) LeCrone, c.e.o. of LeMatic, Inc.,
Jackson, MI. The company builds packaging lines that take the buns from the cooler, index and orientate them, slice them, stack them and put them in a bag. LeMatic has made its bun baggers more operator-friendly, eliminating manual adjustments. Our original baggers were extremely adjustable, and we could run many things, Mr. LeCrone said. But because they were adjustable, people had to be able to understand and operate them. What we found prevalent in todays workplace is that operators are changing more frequently, and bakeries are even using temporary workers in some cases. So we have had to make our machines as exible as possible with as few adjustments as possible. The OEM began incorporating servo drives about three years ago to allow smoother operation, longer runs and faster speeds. Also, it improved the information systems, allowing Ethernet connectivity to make the bagger an integral part of the whole bakery system, Mr. LeCrone Burford. The tyers were reliable but a lot noisier and required more maintenance because of moving chains and parts than todays servodriven twist tyers, he observed. The company launched its rst servo-driven twist tyer in the mid-1990s, and nearly three years ago, Burford updated the machine. After having our servo twist tyer in the market for 12 years, we were looking to do a redesign, said Mitch Lindsey, technical sales, Burford. We listened to complaints from our service techs and plant engineers as to what were common failures and what they would like to see changed, and we incorporated all we could in the new machine. Its newest model features brushless DC motors that last longer than the previous motors. When we originally designed the servo tyer, brushless motors werent available, Mr. Ivey said. We also made a lot of improvements with new electronics that are now available. In addition, the new unit uses less twist-tie material,

thus companies are able to save on materials, according to Mr. Lindsey. It also consumes approximately 10% less power than the previous model, he added. The new twist tyer features a lightweight, removable head. Ergonomically, it is easier for maintenance to access everything, Mr. Lindsey observed. A sealed-end coder also extends the life of the motor. Its been almost three years since its launch, and we have not seen failures in those areas. That was our hope when we did the redesign. Burfords newest twist tyer can operate at speeds as high as 110 bags per minute, and it has proved this by running a machine for several hours at this rate at a bagging machine manufacturer, according to Mr. Lindsey. The only way we have seen it run that fast in production is to be fed by two baggers, he added. Kwik Lok Corp., Yakima, WA, is unique in that it not only builds the bag closing equipment but also produces the tab lock closures that run through the equipment. There is no need for two sources of supply to close the bags, said Hal

Miller, vice-president of sales. Kwik Lok is the original; we are not a copy. Kwik Lok offers both fully and semi-automatic bag closing equipment to serve the packaging needs of the baking industry from the small mom-and-pop operations to the large corporate bakeries, he said. We offer closing equipment for high-speed lines, up to 120 bags per minute; machines to close paper bags; as well as specialty bag closing equipment for pita bread and tortillas, Mr. Miller said, noting that the company has been in the bag closure business for 56 years. The companys closures open and close the same way each time. The shape of the Kwik Lok closure does not change, Mr. Miller added. It does not become wrinkled and twisted, making it difcult to use. The fact that the closure does not change shape makes the code always readable when printed on the closure. One of its newer pieces of equipment has a standard model that allows the machine to apply either a closure label or simply a closure without the need for any additional equipment. Kwik Lok is further developing its laser printing options. The manufacturer is able to accommodate bakeries enhanced printing requirements from best before dates to real time and scannable barcodes for traceability and promotional opportunities. We are seeing an increase in the desire to offer cross promotion and couponing programs in the bakery sector and now have the ability to offer scratchoff game possibilities for fundraising opportunities, Mr. Miller added. We are able to meet this need by using the Kwik Lok closure label. Todays baggers and closure systems are faster, smarter and more efcient than ever because equipment manufacturers continue to look for ways to improve and enhance their machines for todays high-speed bakeries that require less downtime and greater output.

Quality & Safety Testing of Food in the Bakery Industry

CONTINUED FROM PAGE22 Rancidity: As fat is a major ingredient and it becoming rancid will affect the quality of the food. Gluten content: Wheat is a rich source of gluten. Products made without wheat are made have to be tested for the presence or absence gluten before they can be labelling as Gluten free able in market and what specic attributes can be improved or changed to increase the chances of market success. Today, the preparation of bakery and confectionery products requires the application of modern, sophisticated processing and production technology. Accuracy and perfection plays a major role in the preparation of good quality products. Over and above this, testing methods as outlined above can give bakeries powerful insights into their product quality. This helps them improve quality of product, manufacturing processes and hygiene & sanitation standards. Ultimately helping them to boost sales and stay one step ahead of the competition. Moreover, many of the tests that determine food quality have become mandatory by law and industry regulation. To sum up, the specic objectives of testing include: Imparting the scientic and technical knowledge of food science. Study the factors affecting food acceptance. Develop the awareness about food microbiology, food hygiene and sanitation. Enable the entrepreneur to understand the relationship between nutrition and human health. Increase the awareness about food laws, regulations and quality control. Ensure food safety by doing hygiene audit for industries for a check quality of air, water, food, swab, beverage etc. which will affect the nal product. Dr. Priyanka EQUINOX LAB Email: Website:,

Sensory Evaluation Studies

Consumers of all age groups prefer bakery products because of their attractive appearance, smell, color & taste. Two products in the market may have the same face value and may be microbiologically, nutritionally and chemically acceptable; but still they perform very differently when it comes to consumer preference. This is due to the elusive aspect of human perception of intangible aspects like Taste, Flavor, Texture and several more which contribute to the Overall Eating Experience All these features of bakery products which are subjectively judged by the consumer can be scientically studied through a Sensory Evaluation process. In Sensory Evaluation Studies, a forum of food technologists, who are trained to consciously judge and evaluate the intangibles in food; study the various attributes of the product and give it a tangible score. Comparative analysis of various products in the market can also be done by this method. Sensory Evaluation Studies are very helpful to nd out whether your product is accept-

hef Kunal, pastry chef from Zanzibar also took turns at teaching a class. In his sessions he taught the class some Italian and American treats.

Italian pick-me-ups !!

As attractive as the people of this nation, are their desserts!

Diabetic pannacotta

This dessert is a derivative of an Italian descent, originating in a yet unknown period, in Piemonte, Italy the panna cotta, or cooked cream was set using an extract of boiled sh bones, contrary to the gelatine sheets of today. The Cream is mostly avoured with vanilla beans, sweetened, cooked and set using gelatine. Being such a simple dessert and not requiring an oven, it has quickly gained importance

in many domestic kitchens. Its versatility with avour and stability are the features that enable it to be used as a Diabetic dessert, by replacing sugar with an alternate natural sweetener that is a Stevia leaf extract. Ingredients: Cream: 500gm Milk: 350gm Stevia Extract: To taste Gelatine sheets : 8 sheets Rose-water / Fruit Puree: 150 grams Litchis: 01 small till Method: Boil the cream and milk with the sugar. Bloom the gelatine by dissolving it in cold water for 5 mins and allowing to absorb moisture When it boils, reduce for further 5 mins Add the bloomed gelatine, the rosewater and cool over a ice-bath till 28deg C. Adjust the sweetness to taste with Stevia drops Pour into glasses/moulds and set in the fridge Serve with quartered litchis (fresh or canned) *Serving suggestion Pannacotta can be made my heating and slightly reducing cream and milk, and adding 100g of puree and approximately 15gm of gelatine to a litre of boiling liquid. Mango, Berries, Vanilla, Rose, Passionfruit, Jasmine-Tea, etc are a few avours that come to mind.

Traditional tiramisu

Literally Pull/Pick Me Up! In Italian, this dessert is made of Savoiardi biscuits dipped in Coffee,and layered with an aerated mix of sabayon and mascarpone, with the

30-38_BakeItYourselfff.indd 8

adequate use of Coffee liqueur. Although the debate of its origins have pegged that the current version is a much recent invention dating 1971 by Giuseppe de Clemente, the dessert has an universal appeal. Here and today, we attempt at making 10 portions (130gmeach) of tiramisu in its simple tradtional style with a few changes, in terms of cooking the eggs and subsititution of Savoiardi with a Sponge ngers :Ingredients Mascarpone Cheese: 450 grams Egg yolks: 90grams Castor Sugar: 80grams Water: 20grams Gelatine: 2 sheets Whipped Cream: 150 grams Coffee Powder: 30grams Sugar Syrup: 150 grams Fingure Sponge: 200grams Kahlua (optional): 20 grams Method Bloom gelatine in cold water for 5 mins. Mix the coffee powder, warm sugar syrup and kahlua together. Whisk egg yolks lightly and add in sugar and water cooked to 121deg C or til the whole mix starts boiling intensely for 2mins, and whisk a sabayon. When the sabayon is at

about 30deg C add in pieces of mascarpone cheese, and mix well. Add in heated bloomed gelatine and mix well Dissolve the sponge ngers/ Savoiardi biscuits in the coffee syrup and line the base of the mould or the glass being used Layer the mould with the mix and the sponge ngers Allow to cool for 2-4 hours before serving, or 5 hours before cutting. Lightly freezing can be done to aid in a smooth cut but should be avoided Dust with cocoa powder and place a half of a strawberry, a coffee bean and/or a chocolate garnish (optional) Serve cold. Can also be put into a large bowl instead of individual portions *Serving suggestion A Tiramisu can be served with a Coffee ice-cream, a Coffee sauce or Chocolate derivatives of a similar nature. Fresh berries help offset the sweet creamy texture and cocoa powder helps neutralize the potent coffee taste.The plain Mascarpone Creamy Mix can be inunced by various avours like GreenTea, Fruit Purees, Nut pastes, the list is seemingly endless.

Simply tart-i-licious !!

A Tart is a baked dessert comprising a shortcrust pastry base, with an open top usually docked and covered with an almond cream, a preserve or a custard and can also be savoury. Tart is also called a Flan or a Pie in the USA and a slight innovation by the French resulted in the Tarte Tatin. The origins are not denite, but argument is rife that around 1550AD

Europeans enriched dough was used to make pies with a meat stufng, instead of the common sweet llings of the present day.
