Now Open: AB Mauri UK & Ireland Centre of Excellence.

On Wednesday November 18th 2015, the AB Mauri UK & Ireland Centre of Excellence was officially unveiled to the wider baking industry.

44 guests, including many industry bodies, were welcomed with an innovation talk by Jim Hawkridge, Technical Director and given an extensive tour of the facilities to demonstrate the development capabilities for both the bread and confectionery units.

Jim Hawkridge commented: “Whilst the new facilities will help us to provide enhanced support to the wider baking industry, we are very thankful that it will also enable us to evolve experience internally, invest time and develop stronger people.”

George Weston, Chief Executive of Parent Company Associated British Foods (seen here with AB Mauri UK & Ireland Managing Director, Andrew Pollard), then officially declared the centre open. 

Speaking shortly before the official opening, a delighted Andrew Pollard commented: “Our customers tell us we are industry leaders in technical support - something we are very pleased about and very grateful for. But equally, our customers tell us very loud and clear that what you need from an ingredients supplier is to be innovative and, hopefully, by having this facility in our global network, we will be able to deliver that for them.”

The facility, located in Corby, Northamptonshire, is ideally situated approximately 3 miles from the companies Corby manufacturing site. It features a development bakery with built in presentation suite, conference room and office facilities for both the NPD and QA functions.

The facility received a warm response from customers:

‘AB Mauri has a new Innovation centre of exceptional quality. A truly outstanding centre that will work in partnership with customers, providing solutions based on sound knowledge.’

Paul Birchall, Greggs.

‘The Centre of Excellence is a good showcase for AB Mauri expertise and resource. The hard work now begins to meet and prioritise customer expectations.’

Steve Cook, Fine Lady Bakeries.
