Key ingredients: the non-food supplies every baker needs to succeed

17 July, 2013

When there’s a seemingly endless list of new flavour combinations and decoration techniques for a baker to try out, it’s easy to forget about the other elements that go into creating a successful baking business.

While they may not be what drives chefs and caterers to go into business, non-food supplies are often just as important as delicious ingredients when it comes to keeping customers happy. This week’s blog looks at some of the vital extra supplies every baker needs, available from BAKO North Western alongside an extensive range of professional-standard baking produce.

Baked to perfection

Even the most experienced cook’s baking can easily turn into a kitchen disaster without the right everyday kitchen essentials. Knowing the difference between silver foil and greaseproof paper, and which to use when, is essential for turning out spectacular cakes and bakers need to have a variety of supplies on hand for all occasions.

Dressed to impress

Making the transition from talented home cook to a growing business means complying to certain Health and Safety regulations. To help bakers out, BAKO North Western stocks a range of professional baking clothing including disposable bakers’ coats, hair nets and aprons.


Decorative flair

Not all non-food supplies are designed purely for practical reasons, and can be a clever way of adding a finishing touch to your products. Vibrant cupcake and muffin cases, colourful cake boards and decorative packaging are all ways to make sure your baked goods set out to impress.


Eat-in or take away

Once you’ve made sure your tasty treats stand out from the crowd, it’s vital to think through how they will be presented and sold within your shop, café or restaurant. From display trays to specialist cake boxes for delivery or take-away sandwich containers, every detail must be thought through to serve customers in the most attractive, convenient way possible.


After a busy day baking, it’s inevitable that the kitchen can get a little messy. As a one-stop shop for baking supplies, BAKO North Western also provide a full range of all the cleaning products a chef could ever need to get their kitchen spotless again.
