Foodpro will offer a range of solutions for the bakery sector next month, including a seminar on sodium reduction.

Michelle Briggs from "alternative" raising agents company Kudos Blends, will speak on the topic, with a view to addressing the need, impact, and challenges specific to the baking sector.

A UK company, Kudos provides bakers with raising agents  that optimise the quality, texture, taste and shelf life of baked products, it claims, by combining chemistry with baking.

Briggs will speak on Tuesday 18 July as part of the AIFST seminar line-up.

There will also be a number of exhibitors which offer the baking sector solutions and ideas for the future. 

Sandvik Process Systems, for example, supplies steel belts for bake ovens.

It supplies bake oven belts up to 3500 mm wide, and the show will allow the company to prove the hygienic advantages of stainless steel belts and highlight the diversity of applications for its belts.

These include precision carton printing and the production of packing films and foils.
