Awarded for the 17th time in 2020, the Eberhard Paech Prize, to rewards outstanding contributions to bakery. Individual people, research or working groups qualify to be awarded, but not business enterprises. The award comes with a EUR10,000 win, which will be awarded as a whole or in two equal parts.
The award acknowledges achievements and contributions in the fields of:
– science, research and education

– product development and quality improvement
– bread in nutrition

– bread and bakery in the performing arts
This significant baking industry prize will be awarded once every three years, for outstanding work in the development of technology, the reputation and the presentation of the bread. The next award ceremony marks its 50th anniversary. The Eberhard Paech Prize Foundation GmbH was founded in 1970 in Berlin by Eberhard Paech. His life goal was to create high-quality bread. “For him, bread was the most important staple food, a living thing, an essential part of everyday life and culture. His creativity, his pioneering spirit and his ability to connect overall social developments with the practicalities of the industry, and his ability to link ideas of many together, have made him one of the pioneers and ambassadors of producing good bread,” the organizers explain.
Applications and proposals will be evaluated by a jury consisting of practitioners, academics and business representatives throughout the baking industry. Application deadline is October 31.
