After months of preparation, the wait was finally over for BAKO North Western on Sunday, as we were joined by baking friends from across the region for a day of 1964 themed excitement.
Our Family Fun Day, part of a year-long calendar of celebrations to mark BAKO NW’s 50th Anniversary, saw suppliers, customers and BAKO team members enjoy a whole host of activities, with a generous helping of cake on the side.
We were lucky enough to be joined by leading names from the food industry, including Renshaw, Callebaut and Bakels, showing guests how to create impressive edible masterpieces in a series of demonstrations in the BAKOry.
Alongside these skilful displays, many more of our favourite food brands were on hand in the BAKO marquee, with a whole host of tempting treats for visitors to taste, from sausages hot-off-the-grill to delicate pastries.
The day was also a chance to show our customers exactly what goes on behind the scenes at BAKO, with warehouse tours and the chance to pit your skills against a Toyota forklift simulator! Meanwhile, BAKO’s youngest fans, and a few of the older ones too, were entertained by face-painting, bouncy castles and our very own photo booth, complete with seriously silly 60s props.
We’ve collected a selection of highlights from our #BAKOFunDay below, and would love to hear from you on Twitter if you enjoyed it as much as we did.
