Storage, weighing and mixing

In the bakery processes, the stages of storage and weighing play a fundamental role in ensuring the precision and quality of the final culinary creation. Effective storage practices safeguard the integrity of ingredients, preserving their freshness and enhancing overall product quality. Simultaneously, meticulous weighing procedures contribute to the precision required for successful recipe execution.

Combining the ingredients initiates the chemical process of baking, encompassing the combination and hydration of dry components, incorporation of air, and the development of gluten to achieve optimal dough-handling characteristics. Precise measurements and control are applied to the mixing time, energy input, and dough temperature.


The conveyors play a pivotal role in optimising production workflows, facilitating the smooth transition of raw materials through various stages of the baking process. From the initial transportation of flour and other essential components to the meticulous handling of dough and the orderly presentation of finished goods, conveyors form the backbone of a well-orchestrated bakery operation.

Depanning & pan cleaning

The depanning stage is an important act in the journey from oven to table. Depanning, the art of carefully extracting baked goods from their moulds, marks the culmination of the baking process and the beginning of their transformation into delectable delights. This intricate procedure requires a delicate balance of precision and finesse to ensure that each product maintains its shape, texture, and visual appeal.

As an integral part of the overall production workflow, the pan cleaning process ensures that baking pans and trays are free from residue, contaminants, and unwanted flavours that could compromise the quality of the baked goods. From removing remnants of previous batches to preventing crosscontamination, this meticulous cleaning procedure is essential for upholding food safety, product consistency, and the overall reputation of the bakery.


The slicing stage is a precision-driven performance, transforming fully baked creations into uniform portions ready for consumption. The slicing process, often the final touch before products reach the consumer, requires a delicate balance between artistry and technological finesse.


The packaging step involves carefully enclosing and protecting freshly baked goods before they embark on their journey to consumers’ homes. The packaging process is a meticulous part of the process that ensures not only the preservation of flavour and freshness but also makes the end product visually attractive.
