IREKS U.K. Ltd. at the ABST Conference 2017

On 16th and 17th June, the ABST Conference took place in the Alton Towers Hotel in Staffordshire near Stoke. There were more than 300 students from seven different colleges and universities across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We think that it is very important to share our knowledge and experience with the more than 300 students from seven different colleges and universities across the United Kingdom and Ireland who joined the Conference. We also support baking schools, colleges and universities to win more students and trainees for the baking industry.

On the first day of the ABST Conference, the students were given the opportunity to meet the leading Industry Suppliers. Each company had a presentation table in order to give the students an insight into their companies and allowed the opportunity to ask questions. Lucas Fussnegger (Technical Advisor) was IREKS U.K. Ltd.'s representa-tive for the conference. The students could smell, taste and experience different malts and sourdoughs. They also had the chance to discuss and discover how to become a Master Baker and the working opportunities they might have.

Saturday was competition day. All students were allowed to enter various competitions in order to display their talents. There were more than twenty judges who had six hours to discover the winners of each category. The winner receives a trip to Kulmbach to visit the IREKS headquarters. The students had to bake one 400 g white tin bread and one Swiss roll.

The ABST Conference was finished by hosting an Awards Ceremony Banquet. All the awards were presented after a three course meal. Congratulations to the winner!
