Bakery Innovation Centre

  • Innovation Centre

    The Bakery Innovation Centre enables industrial bakers interested in improving the quality of their bread to evaluate the different ways of achieving this.

    Companies from every part of the world find that thorough trials, often using their own local raw materials, provide a reliable basis for trouble-free commissioning of new plant and launch of new lines. The wide variety of process technologies available under one roof enables us to cross conventional process boundaries, and to offer a variety of process solutions for a single product.

    The Innovation Centre at Peterborough in the UK contains a wide range of production and laboratory scale equipment dedicated to the bakery industry:


    Pressure-vacuum mixing, low stress dividing and gentle moulding can all be tested as either individual units or a complete process upgrade.

    Proving & Baking

    Proving and baking facilities are also on hand so that improvements in texture, colour and softness can be seen in the final product.


    A C-Cell analyser is available for anyone wanting an objective measure of the difference in bread quality.

    This range of equipment is permanently available, and specialized units can be brought in - from other suppliers if necessary - to complete a process. Alternatively, customers are welcome to bring along their own technologies to integrate within our existing equipment.Customers are guaranteed total confidentiality, working with or without the help of Baker Perkins' experienced food technologists.

    In addition to Bakery, the Innovation Centre also houses facilities dedicated to the Confectionery, Biscuit, Snack, and the Breakfast Cereal industries.
