Bakery Business, as the industry is well aware, has emerged as the torchbearer for the Indian bakery, pastry and chocolate industry for close to two decades. The show will take place at Hitex Exhibition Centre, Hyderabad, from June 21-23, 2023.

Pradeep Gopalan, founder and director, Hospitality First, said, “This will be the 3rd edition of our flagship show in the South of India. Whilst, the south market holds a lot of business promise, we have responded this edition to a business trend we have observed from our past few Mumbai and Hyderabad events.”

The event will see about 11,000 visitors from across South India, and above 180 plus exhibitors representing national and international leading brands. This year’s event will introduce a new co-located event alongside Bakery Business, the HoReCa Business Show.

The Indian Foodservice and Bakery industry over the last decade has seen its business footprint vastly overlap each other. The line dividing these two business sectors has blurred to the extent it has now begun complementing each other. On the contrary, HoReCa & Bakery Equipment & Ingredient suppliers have been found to target both these sectors with separate distribution networks, separate manpower, separate budgets for HoReCa & Bakery Specific trade shows. “We have responded with a new show that will be held alongside the Bakery Business Show, the HoReCa Business Show,” said Gopalan.

Theme for this edition -
The staging of these two shows in one place on the same very dates itself is a business moment for the industry. “One could say it’s a business handshake between Bakery Business & HoReCa Business," said Gopalan.

With the coming together of market sectors and market acceptance of the underlying thought, has itself jumped the show to double in size. “Close to 180 companies straddling both these business sectors are exhibiting in this edition offering a complete array of specialised products and service for the Bakery & HoReCa industry,” added Gopalan.

Highlights of the event -
Staging of Exclusive Master Classes by the country's top most pastry chefs and cake artists.

The latest trends observed in the industry-

Bakeries today are not indulging in just over the counter sales but selling dining out experiences in the form of Bakery & High Street Cafes,
Hotel banquets, restaurants and the catering industry to reduce manpower and investment in a specialised area such as baking has been outsourcing their requirement of baked goods for breakfast menus and desserts to the bakery & pastry industry.

Rise of bakery and restaurant chains driving investment in central kitchen concepts and heavy automation.

Cloud kitchens today comfortably house a bakery kitchen as well as hot and cold kitchen in the same premise.

Institutional investment which once only found favour with the restaurant sector is now finding the Indian bakery industry attractive for investments.

“Trade visitors attending the Bakery Business Fair comprise 30% from the Hotel, Restaurants & Catering sectors. HoReCa & Bakery suppliers are missing one market for the other for lack of business bandwidth and funds,” concluded Gopalan.
