McDougalls Wholesaler Baking Team of the Year Winner
Pamela Maclean, Food Development Manager at Bidfood tells us what it was like to win the McDougalls Wholesaler Baking Team of the Year.
“Our team was delighted to be shortlisted to go through to the live final of the McDougalls Wholesaler Baking Team of the Year competition! It brought out the competitive streak in all of us, as we worked together to perfect our recipe for Persian Flapjacks with rose petals, pistachios and pomegranate, using McDougalls Flapjack Mix. Our recipe was inspired by upcoming flavour trends, ease of preparation and the ability to maximise the selling price and gross profit for operators.
“The live final was such a fun day and further cemented our teamwork. This element was recognised by the judges and we were crowned the winning team after a tough competition – our rival’s recipe on the day was exceptional so we were really proud to have been made champions.
“It gives us great pleasure that we were able to donate our £500 winning cheque to the British Heart Foundation, a charity which is extremely close to our hearts. We know how much the money will help the charity from our own experience.
“The competition was a great initiative from Premier Foods and has allowed us to showcase the versatility of products which we are supplying to caterers.”
