BAKE'UP® helps to reduce your carbon footprint

Respect is an important value in our company.

Respect for others of course, but also for our beautiful planet. That’s why we strive to use energy, water, food ingredients and packaging in the most efficient way and try to keep waste and emissions to a minimum. In parallel we develop innovative technologies to produce tasty products having a lower carbon footprint.

BAKE'UP® is Vandemoortele's unique technology for pastry products that are up to 60% smaller than pre-proved products. As a result, customers can save up to 60% in storage, logistic costs and emissions due to transport.

BAKE'UP® Carbon Footprint

The products are preglazed and must neither be defrosted nor proved. They can be put immediately from freezer to oven – saving time for the bakers. No specific equipment is needed; these products are perfectly baked in a convection, rack or rapid cook oven. An extreme level of convenience, as well as an excellent taste, makes BAKE'UP® an attractive choice.

Frozen products are ready in 20 minutes, so that customers can offer and consumers can enjoy freshly baked authentic croissants and Danish pastry at any time of the day. This results in a better on shelf availability, all day long and less food waste.
