The biscuit equipment manufacturer, Spooner Vicars, has opened their first full-size Bakery Innovation Center in India. The Bengaluru based factory has been producing equipment for almost 10 years, and now boasts a dedicated hygienic testing space fitted out with the new Vortex mixer and 1.2m-wide APEX 400 laminating and sheeting line.
The new testing center will be used by both national and international biscuit manufacturers for recipe and new product development, ingredient substitution trials, training and seminars, as well as being a showcase for Spooner Vicars launch of biscuit production equipment.
The inaugural ceremony was attended by a strong international contingent including visitors from China, Canada, Egypt, USA, Philippines, New Zealand, UK, Spain, UAE, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Sweden.
The test line was started by remote keying by VIPs, and a number of Marie batches were mixed, laminated, sheeted and baked live in front of the international assembly.
