Bakers are looking to differentiate their products to increase sales and profit margins. Higher-quality, European-style breads will continue to shape the industry. These breads require longer resting times and less stress on the dough during processing.
Clean labels are increasingly in demand and this trend is projected to grow. Consumers want to buy products with easy to understand, on-trend food ingredients especially when it comes to bread. Whether it’s gluten-free or non-GMO the consumer is looking for the latest on-pack claims. Keeping up with trends is not easy for bakeries, and reformulating to meet the broad definition of clean label is a challenge but it makes a huge difference for the consumer.
Savoury & Sweet Baking
Baking is not just about sweet treats and pastries, savoury is becoming a major trend in the baking sector as consumers are looking for tasty yet healthy options to eat on the go. Rising needs for vegan and vegetarian options give way to new opportunities for innovation.
