Organic Solutions for Dough Improvement

The Opportunity

Since 2000, the sale of organic foods has steadily increased, with the organic food market in the U.S. reaching $45.2 billion in sales in 2017, according to Food Business News. The organic bakery segment, specifically, has seen significant growth.

To meet growing consumer demand for organic options and to take hold of opportunities in the organic space, bakers must adhere to rigorous manufacturing requirements and secure a reliable supply chain of organic ingredients, all while delivering the delicious sensory experience consumers expect of baked goods.
