Students get taste of life at busy bakery

A trip to Warburtons was the best thing since sliced bread for students.

Students who have chosen to study the GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition course next year visited the bakery in Wednesbury.

The visit gave them an insight into the mass production of bread and how flour as a commodity is utilised in the company’s many products. 

Food Technology teacher, Miss B Chima, said: “Students got to compare bread products from competitors and also take part in a small food science experiment based on producing a gluten ball. 

“The students were then given a full bakery tour with the technical bakery managers and got to see 7,000 loaves of bread being produced in one hour.”
