Sugden Launches Mini-hotplate to Support Small Bakeries

Lancashire-based Sugden Ltd, a designer and manufacturer of hotplate systems, has launched a mini system to help small and medium-sized bakeries develop a range of products on a single piece of equipment with a small footprint.

The mini-hotplate incorporates all of the technologies used in the company’s larger systems and is fast and efficient, capable of producing up to 1,200 quality, batter-based (such as pancakes, crumpets and pikelets) products per hour. It can also be used for sheeted products such as potato scones and welsh cakes.

Sugden designed and developed the mini-hotplate after spotting a gap in the market for a smaller system to support the needs of craft, small to medium-sized bakeries, both at home and within emerging markets.

Chris Baldwin, managing director of Sugden Ltd said: “Historically we have always designed and manufactured large-scale production lines, but through market research we recognized that the production needs of craft and smaller bakeries were completely unsupported. During our extensive travels, meeting customers old and new, it was highlighted that the ability to deliver high-quality products for smaller bakeries was not being met. […] Our mini hotplate has been designed to fit into the tightest of spaces and is semi-automatic, requiring a minimal number of operators with small bakeries in mind. Its launch means we’re now perfectly positioned to cater for the needs of food producers of all sizes, providing them with solutions that not only increase their production but also improve product quality while keeping their costs down.”

It’s the latest innovation to come out of the company which has doubled in size over the last five years in response to surging demand, both in the UK and internationally, for its made-in-Britain hotplate systems which are capable of producing up to 14,400 crumpets, 26,000 English muffins and 19,000 pancakes per hour.

In January, the company also acquired the intellectual property of Vanderpol Waffle Systems, meaning it can now manufacture, supply and install a wide-range of industry-leading waffle and funcake systems, further strengthening its product range and market position.
