The Baking Festival: Ghana’s First Baking Conference
October 22, 2016
Organised by MI Prime Entertainment, Ghana’s first baking exhibition, The Baking Festival, will take place at the Palace Super Stores, Accra on the 22nd of October, 2016. The Baking Festival comprises an exhibition and a Conference, offering something for everyone with an array of features that will appeal to home bakers and professionals alike, as well as vendors and all other stakeholders of the baking industry.
The industry like others faces several operational challenges that prevents the sector from meeting its intended objective. Most bakers are operators of small and medium enterprises, and therefore lack the skills and adequate marketing strategies to plunge into the large scale in order expand their business. Bakers are also prone to huge losses due to bakery products which are susceptible to microbial spoilage.
MiPrime Entertainment and its partners are creating a common ground to address issues confronting the baking industry. The baking festival will bring together professional bakers, amateurs, suppliers, industry stakeholders and keynote speakers. Its main aim is to create a link where these individuals and groups can connect to share knowledge, information and also for business purposes.
With a call on the promotion of ‘Made in Ghana brand’, the event will also provide a platform for bakers to use and advertise locally made items. The exhibition denotes a display of the rich cuisine of various establishments from 8am to 8pm. It further comprises a fun list of competitions, such as “May the crust be with you” and “Battle of the Galaxies”, as well as challenges to bake the
biggest pizza and to bake a replica of an artistic monument.
The conference has been put together to sharpen the skills of all stakeholders from bakers to vendors, ensuring they are on par with the world standards. An array of experts in various fields of the industry would speak during the conference on topics including the state of the baking industry, the transition of baking, and trends in the baking industry. The Baking Festival is Ghana’s first Baking Trade Show and Conference and it is intended to be an annual event to help improve the baking sector.
The event is sponsored by Oak Plaza Hotel, Sweet Home Kitchen & Palace Shopping Centre. For more information, please visit www.bakingfestivalgh.com.
