A freshly-graduated UCB student has been appointed as a research and development technologist for one of the largest producers of yeast and bakery equipment in the world. 

Hannah Parry, who recently earned her BSc (Hons) in Bakery and Patisserie Technology – a course accredited by the University of Birmingham, will be working alongside three other R&D technologists at AB Mauri’s Centre of Excellence in Corby, Northamptonshire. 

AB Mauri has further strengthened its NPD function with the addition of Hannah, who has worked within the bakery industry in both the UK and Europe. 

“I feel privileged to have received this role and it makes the last five years of bakery education and preparation all worthwhile,” Hannah told leading industry magazine British Baker

“Working with bakery ingredients makes every day unique. It’s a very interesting and scientific part of the industry and I’ve always taken a keen interest in current trends, product development and experimental work. 

“All elements that make a great fit to a research and development role with AB Mauri.” 

Hannah’s appointment follows AB Mauri securing an AA accreditation in its latest British Retail Consortium audit across all three of its manufacturing sites, as well as its yeast plant in Hull.
