Ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries is giving its clients a look behind the curtain at its Des Moines, Iowa, headquarters. The company is offering virtual tours of its new Bakery Innovation Center — which includes pilot-plant equipment and capabilities meant to help get new baked goods to market quickly — via a digital brochure.
“We created this interactive tour to help bakers experience the new technology and solutions available at our Bakery Innovation Center from the convenience of their desk,” said Courtney Schwartz, marketing for Kemin Food Technologies – Americas. “This center can be a real game-changer for bakers. The fully equipped space mimics the commercial bakery production process, allowing us to screen and test bakery products containing Kemin’s ingredient solutions. This means customers won’t lose valuable production time running trials for challenges they are working to overcome.”
The brochure highlights the center’s pilot-scale production equipment, which the company said allows for new ingredients and technologies to be screened and tested before trials are done at a customer’s facility. It also emphasized the innovation center’s analytical lab equipment for dough and finished product evaluation, ingredient blending and small-batch capabilities, its accelerated stability facility, and its customer laboratory services.
“Our bakery experts learn and evaluate each customer’s commercial process in a confidential secure setting in house at the Bakery Innovation Center, which saves time and creates cost advantages with no travel required,” Schwartz said. “Bakers are sure to be inspired to create a new generation of great-tasting bakery products that are made possible with our latest technologies, capabilities and Kemin ingredient solutions for baking and snack products.”
