Brumby’s bakers from Highfields, Urangan and the Gold Coast have risen to the top, securing six awards in Toowoomba’s 2016 King of the Bakers’ show.
The event took place in March at the Toowoomba Showgrounds, where hundreds of professional bakers were judged on the overall quality, volume, appearance, texture, structure and aroma of their handcrafted products.
Brumby’s Bakery Franchisee Trainer Donna Elton, alongside with Bev Ward Product Innovation Manager said her team from the Gold Coast won first place in the Savoury Hospitality Bread category in class 19 for their Pane De Casa, second place for their Traditional Sourdough in class 23 and another second place in class 21 for their Pasta Dura.
“We are so proud of the wonderful bakers that took part in the show, and we are very honoured to win these awards,” Donna said.
“The event was booming with incredible support from the local community and it was so great to see everyone rallying together and cheering for their favourites.
“The secret to making the best bread comes down to quality ingredients, wholesome flavours and the love that goes into it.”
Donna said Brumby’s Highfields was judged in class 23 and won first place for their Traditional Sourdough and also won third place for their Commercial Bread in class 36, while Urangan was crowned third place in class two for their Multigrain Half Married.
