Flour processing and bakery technology have been Bühler core competencies for decades. In its Bakery Innovation Centre (BIC), the Group is for the first time ever presenting the know-how it has accumulated along the entire value chain to the bakery industry.

On over 1000 square meters, the Innovation Centre now also features Bühler solutions for the bakery industry, ranging from premix manufacturing to sponge dough production. The Bakery Innovation Centre enables customers to join forces with Bühler experts in order to develop novel products together and to utilise its state-of-the-art infrastructure for practice-oriented training courses.

Innovation Centre offers cutting-edge solutions to the bakery industry
The BIC offers Bühler customers a unique test environment equipped with the latest processing and production systems. Its modular structure allows customised technologies and plant concepts to be tested for every conceivable application. They range from raw materials handling to processing and analysis of end products. For this purpose, the Innovation Centre has been equipped with cutting-edge technologies and automation systems, while at the same time meeting highest hygienic design standards. The Innovation Centre provides services like the evaluation of blending qualities, sponge dough and hydration tests, proportioning and weighing trials, the automation of complete processing systems, and a raw materials quality service.

Bakers benefit from extensive training offering
The training offered by the Bakery Innovation Centre ranges from standard modules to customised, special-purpose training courses.
