The baguette remains the iconic, trademark French bread, with 30 million baguettes bought every day (adding up to more than 10 billion in one year), according to data shared by Europain. In addition, new breads also enjoy popularity, both among the French and elsewhere, including loaves made with rye, seeds, cereals, gluten-free, or multi-seeds. A name synonym with baguette intelligence in all related technologies, MECATHERM also provides solutions supporting a diverse range of baked goods; Cyril Munsch, Director of Sales, will share know-how on innovations along production lines.
