Since the UK Government laid out ambitious targets to reduce sugar and calories by 20% by 2020, manufacturers have had to consider nutritional profiles more so than ever.
Cakes, pastries and sweet goods are the single largest bakery subsector, accounting for a third of overall bakery category sales and over 20% of NPD. It’s therefore no surprise that high fat pastries, have been identified a target area for sugar, fat and overall calorie reduction.
“Bakers now need to stay ahead of the trend and be prepared for 2020. Delyte 10 offers the functionality to satisfy and beat legislation, putting them in a good spot for 2020 and the inevitable further consumer and governmental pressure.”
