Matthew McMahon

A Shift Co-ordinator at Quality Bakers in Nelson, Matthew is taking part for the second time in the NZ Young Bread Baker of the Year. He says he’s been refining his skills and is back with more practical experience and a relaxed attitude, knowing a little bit more of what to expect. Matthew has been with Goodman Fielder for seven years and has achieved a Level 4 Plant Bakery qualification. Matt’s academic ability and knowledge of baking science gives him a solid base to work from. “I’d like to be a bit more creative and do something more complex this time around,” says Matt. “I’d love to show everyone what I’ve learned over the past year.”
