Ja Bakers Association to set up training bakery
published: Monday | August 8, 2005

A SPECIAL bakery designed to train personnel for Jamaica's baking industry is to be established by the Bakers Association of Jamaica.

According to a release from the Bakers Association, the training bakery, which is to be set up in the Corporate Area, will offer various techniques related to commercial baking.

Speaking at a training seminar for bakers at the Medallion Hall Hotel recently, Clarence Chin, president of the Bakers Association noted that the special training bakery will be available to industry players as well as Jamaicans aspiring to work in the baking industry.

PRODUCING MORE

Ken Embers, consultant to the American Institute of Baking, outlined various modern strategies for achieving success in the trading of baked goods and warned that with globalization, Jamaica's bakers will soon be forced to produce at optimum efficiency.

"You will be faced with stiff competition from the US market," he cautioned.

Asserting that consumers are able to derive more nourishment per dollar from baked goods than any other foods, Mr. Embers advised the bakers that they should look to specialised markets such as schools and restaurants and outlined special techniques including how to attain shelf life for baked products.
