Sweet or Savory: What’s Your Indulgence?

From satisfying pies and pizzas to delicate pastries, tempting cakes, confectionary and snappy crackers, there is a sweet or savory bakery delight to tempt each one of us. We see today’s bakery and confectionary goods as colourful, imaginative and sophisticated, but many of our favourite products, for example, lollipops can only be manufactured thanks to a raft of state-of-the-art processing and packaging technologies.
