Caribbean Grains Trains Cottage Industry Bakers

| September 30, 2018


Castries, Saint Lucia (September 25, 2018) – Caribbean Grains, Saint Lucia’s flour milling company in Vieux Fort, held another successful baking training session in September – this time for commercial bakers who operate from home

The Company’s continuing programme of training is part of a pledge to not only sell a range of quality flour to the local market, but to also pass on professional techniques to enable bakers to get the most out of the products.

Director of Sales and Marketing at Caribbean Grains, Decosta Pierre, said home-based bakeries were crucial to the baking industry because they produce a variety of pastries and cakes for sale to the public.

Trainee Gail Regy of Artisan Pastries which operates out of Union Terrace, Castries, said she was pleasantly surprised to learn of the many types of flour produced by Caribbean Grains and the new knowledge obtained.

Janie Giraudy who runs the home-based company, Janie’s Equisite Cakes of Moule-a-Chique, Vieux Fort, said she came away with ideas and techniques, mainly in the baking of bread.

So far baking training sessions by Caribbean Grains have instilled more confidence in participants about the preparation of ingredients to improve the presentation and tastes of bread, cakes and pastries.

Since commencing business in November 2016, Caribbean Grains has conducted baking training sessions for groups of community bakers, school students, and hotel pastry chefs, as part of its mission is to provide solutions to the baking industry.
