2010  Young Bread Baker of the Year

Judging for the top young bread baker in New Zealand took place in Auckland recently with Adam McLean, of Quality Bakers Auckland, winning the award of 2010 "Young Bread Baker of the Year".

In winning this award, Adam demonstrated to the judges an ability to excel in three key areas: practical baking, theoretical knowledge of baking technology, and presentation of research into key process and law changes that have occurred in the NZ baking industry over the last 50 years and their significance to the industry.

As winner of this year’s award, Adam will have the opportunity to broaden his industry knowledge and experience through a $10,000 research grant.

The "Young Bread Baker of the Year" award is sponsored by the NZ Association of Bakers and is designed to promote excellence in people emerging from their training.
