Confectionery Innovation Centre: Peterborough, UK

  • Innovation Centre

    Baker Perkins offers all its customers facilities to develop new products and processes, produce samples for test marketing, and conduct feasibility trials.

    Companies from every part of the world find that thorough trials, often using their own local raw materials, provide a reliable basis for trouble-free commissioning of a new plant or launch of a new line. The wide variety of process technologies available under one roof enables us to cross conventional process boundaries, and to offer a variety of process solutions for a single product.

    The Innovation Centre at Peterborough in the UK contains a wide range of production and laboratory scale equipment dedicated to the confectionery industry:


    For all types of confectionery from fondant to hard candy.


    A servo-controlled electronic depositor for process development and small batch trials is available for use. A continuous 250mm wide line for production scale trials is also available.

    Products that can be tested include hard candy in solid, striped, layered and filled varieties; soft candy such as toffee, caramel and fondant; and gums and jellies using our unique starchless process.

    This range of equipment is permanently available, and specialized units can be brought in - from other suppliers if necessary - to complete a process. Alternatively, customers are welcome to bring along their own technologies to integrate within our existing equipment. Customers are guaranteed total confidentiality, working with or without the help of Baker Perkins' experienced food technologists.

    In addition to confectionery the Innovation Centre also houses labs dedicated to the Biscuit, Snack, Breakfast Cereal and Bakery industries.
