WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Bakers Association (ABA) announces that the 2017 Technical Conference – the largest conference designed specifically for cookie, cracker and baking manufacturing professionals – is programmed with sessions to educate attendees on implementing processes with immediate paybacks that maximize savings while preserving resources.  

“The Technical Conference is a premier platform for educating attendees on how to use the same amount of resources to yield less waste and more savings,” said Senior Advisor to the President & CEO: B&CMA Transition & Development Dave Van Laar. “For example, through strategic modification, a baker can reduce bad batches, which cuts scrap but can also save $100,000. It’s win-win.”

“The vision of the Technical Conference is to keep the baking industry current, efficient, and ahead on their bottom-line goals,” said ABA President & CEO Robb MacKie. “We invite attendees to challenge the experts on the Production Panel and probe their expertise on increasing output. The sessions will educate on how to do just that.”

Another hot topic discussion at the Technical Conference includes reducing the cost of mandatory Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) implementation and kill-step validation through the available FDA-accepted kill step validation calculator for potential savings of $20,000 per SKU.

Whether companies send engineers, researchers, bakers, or other teams, ABA staff will connect employees with resources that can assist in problem-solving.

Registration is open: Register for 2017 Technical Conference today, and find the full brochure here.
