Baking Industry

The baking industry includes those firms involved in the production, importation/wholesaling, and retailing of baked goods including breads, cakes, pastries, cookies, crackers and tortillas. For our purposes we focus on the production of baked goods.

According to Wikipedia: “Baking is a method of cooking food that uses prolonged dry heat, normally in an oven, but also in hot ashes, or on hot stones.” The most common baked item is bread but many other types of foods are baked. Heat is gradually transferred from the surface of cakes, cookies, and breads to their center. As heat travels through, it transforms batters and dough into baked goods with a firm dry crust and a softer center. Because of historical social and familial roles, baking has traditionally been performed at home by women for domestic consumption and by men in bakeries and restaurants for local consumption. When production was industrialized, baking was automated by machines in large factories. The art of baking remains a fundamental skill and is important for nutrition as baked goods, especially breads, are a common and important food from an economic and cultural point of view. A person who prepares baked goods as a profession is called a baker.
