Puratos to Open First Bakery School in US

PENNSAUKEN, NJ — Puratos USA has announced plans for a new baking school in Pennsauken, NJ, its first location in the United States. The program, in partnership with Pennsauken High School, will introduce students in the largely underprivileged community to baking in hopes of creating careers in the industry.

“We can make a real difference to the lives of young people and make an important contribution to our industry by establishing a Bakery School in Pennsauken, NJ, — the area in which our US headquarters is located — and one of the most economically challenged boroughs in the State of New Jersey and country,” said Andy Brimacombe, president of Puratos USA. “We have the skill and the will to create a life-changing social contribution right here on our doorstep by providing a launchpad to a career path in the bakery industry for people who may otherwise not have the opportunity.”

This is the seventh school of its kind for the ingredient supplier, with other locations in India, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, Romania and South Africa.
