British Bakels, Bicester, is a leading supplier of baking ingredients. They operate from modern production facilities and offer high service levels to commercial bakeries and other food manufacturers. Bakels required a system that would simplify the production of hundreds of products whilst providing consistent quality; they chose Wonderware’s InBatch software system which was deployed by Stratos Control Systems Ltd.
British Bakels is a member of the International Bakels Group and has more than 100 years experience in the development and manufacture of bakery ingredients. Located on a 5.5 acre site in Bicester, Bakels has invested over £15m in powder blending and wet production, and in warehousing. Production volumes exceeded 20,000 tonnes in 2005. Alongside its manufacturing is a brand new bread assessment laboratory to support its key product groups of bread and roll improvers in liquid, paste and powder forms, release agents, divider oils.
