The Baking with Sound project is collaborative venture with 5 consortium members (Macphie of Glenbervie, Nortek Piezo Ltd, MONO Equipment, Fosters Bakery, and Heriot-Watt University). Its overall objective is to provide the Food Industry with an improved processing strategy to create more competitive ‘free-from’ products. It is a Technology Strategy Board funded project and it commenced in summer 2012.

The event was wonderfully organised by our 3 Communications musketeers Colin Thomson, Joe West and the incomparable Harry Loney. Great job, guys!
