alone Not Large bread manufacturers require consistency, reliable quality, absolute safety and a lot of they have to comply with complex regulation and labelling standards. AB Mauri South Africa learns from general manager Marius van der Bank bread 92 www. bus- ex. com March 10

AB Mauri I f bread is the staff of life, AB Mauri is the branch from which it is fashioned. We all know that bread is made from flour but we know too that it is not as simple as that. Baking for the masses is a huge industry, and even the most basic of loaves contains additives and enhancers to give it the texture and shelf life that it needs. More broadly, there are a host of different kinds of breads, buns and other dough- based products that come under the same technology umbrella. AB Mauri was created in 2005 out of the consolidated yeast and bakery ingredients businesses that Associated British Foods ( ABF) had grown or acquired around the world. The group has its headquarters in the UK and its global subsidiaries deliver the products and ingredients to widely differing markets. In South Africa, AB Mauri has a production facility at Midrand, between Johannesburg and Pretoria, which also houses its warehouse and test baking facility. The administrative headquarters is located in Pretoria: outsourced warehousing and logistics gives added capacity to the firm whose customers are spread throughout South Africa and SADC countries. One of AB Mauri's two divisions- the one in which it leads the world- is yeast technology; however, the South African division does not manufacture or supply yeast, focusing instead on the bakery products side of the business. AB Mauri is an industry leader in the development, formulation and application of technologically advanced bakery systems and functional bread ingredients including bread, cake and doughnut mixes. Another important focus is providing analytical services that help customers alone expertise in nutritional analysis- and then ensures they get all that, as John O'Hanlon March 10 www. bus- ex. com 93
