Welcome to a Bigger, Broader IBIE.

Every three years, the entire baking community comes together at IBIE to experience new technology, access best-in-class education, find inspiration and connect with important resources. Because this is the venue where baking professionals in all roles and from every industry segment join together, the progress that originates at IBIE helps to shape the future of the global grain-based foods industry.

As bakers and suppliers, the planning committee behind IBIE understands the significance of this event, especially as our industry and our community continue to grow. We strive to deliver additional value to our attendees and exhibitors with each edition of the show and we are proud that IBIE 2019 offers additional show features — bigger opportunities to learn, connect and explore a broader range of topics and solutions.

Bigger learning opportunities come in the form of the world’s broadest baking education program, IBIEducate, which offers more than 100 seminars and hands-on training sessions covering everything from the art of artisan baking to automation and technology trends in bakery production. We’ve also responded to attendee feedback with the addition of a full day of education sessions to this year’s programming, which takes place on Saturday, September 7. While visiting the show floor, take advantage of spontaneous education opportunities including the Fresh Take Talks (a popular returning feature) and the all-new RBA Bakers Center, which offers live demonstrations from some of the biggest names in baking.

The IBIE committee takes great care to bring the topics and trends that matter most to our industry forward, which is why you’ll find a special focus on artisan baking at this year’s event. You can access expanded artisan education content and make sure to explore the two new artisan marketplaces on the show floor, presented in partnership with Puratos and Bread Bakers Guild of America, respectively.

We are also presenting a broader view of the global baking industry on the show floor. We’ve partnered with iba to bring Virtual Bakery Tours to IBIE, with enhanced content from wholesale bakeries. Put the virtual reality headset on and take a behind-the-scenes look at unique artisinal and industrial bakeries in the U.S., Greece, Germany, Austria and several other locations. Speaking of the global baking industry, IBIE has been busy visiting other baking industry events around the world this year and spreading the word about IBIE 2019. As a result, we are excited to welcome larger delegations of baking professionals from India, South America, the Middle East and Asia to this year’s event.

Lastly, we would like to thank the dedicated volunteers from our sponsor organizations, the American Bakers Association (ABA), The Bakery Equipment Manufacturers and Allieds (BEMA) and the Retail Bakers of America (RBA). Your many hours of hard work and annual planning are what make this incredible show possible. Thanks also to the IBIE staff, mdg and SmithBucklin, as well as all those who support IBIE and our sponsoring organizations. We could not execute our spectacular Expo without you.

Have an enjoyable and productive show!

VMI offers the widest range of mixing solution, from vertical mixer to fully automated continuous kneading solution

IBIE, the baking industry’s trade fair, is back, from 8 to 11 September 2019, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This worldwide event gathers over 1,000 major manufacturers and vendors of the grain-based food industry, meeting each type of requirement: ingredients, production equipment, preservation system, packing, logistics, distribution…

VMI, a leader in the design and manufacturing of kneaders and mixers for the bakery and snacking industry, will be pleased to exhibit its mixing equipment at IBIE, booths #2605 & #6779. From traditional bakery equipment, to automated production systems for the food industry through kneading solutions with removable bowls for plant bakers, VMI offers solutions for each process.

A French brand known and renowned throughout the world, VMI is present in America through its VMI North America subsidiary, operating from Kansas City. VMI North America provides local support and after-sale services to its North American customers.

Bakery & Snack Food Industries Booth

Booth #6779 will be dedicated to baking / patisserie / biscuit industries, seeking mixing process solutions for diversified, intensive production. VMI will exhibit jointly with Shick Esteve, its sister company, a subsidiary of Linxis, an industrial group VMI belongs to. Shick Esteve designs and manufactures ingredient automation solutions (for liquids, powders or solids). The synergy and complementarity of these two manufacturers help design turnkey solutions that customized to their customers’ needs. The expertise shared by Shick Esteve and VMI will be illustrated by a global, continuous premix and kneading solution.

VMI’s continuous mixing solution allows professionals in the baking industry to master the fundamentals of kneading and guarantee consistent quality on a large scale (500 kg to 8,000 kg per hr) for a wide range of products: traditional bread with or without sourdough, sandwich bread, buns, Viennese pastry, puff pastry…

With over 300 continuous mixers installed throughout the world, VMI’s design was developed specifically for the most demanding type of production: patented pre-mixers to homogenize ingredients, optimal design tools and bowls adapted to different types of dough, high-performance process steering, from dosage to kneading.

Watch the continuous mixer video demonstration

The VMI booth dedicated to industrial baking will also exhibit vertical kneaders with removable bowls, for production runs of 300 – 750 kg of dough. The high-level of performance guarantees a consistent production run. Its wide range of tools allows for all types of recipes: ciabatta bread, cookies, doughnuts, cheesecake, Viennese pastry, unleavened, fermented or gluten-free, germinated seed-based mix or vegetal proteins…

The KNEADSTER kneader is dedicated to manufacturers who wish to make traditional quality bread on an industrial scale. The exclusive design, double mixing tool (format, diameter, position) facilitates the insertion of gaseous alveoli in the dough for even more consistent mixing. KNEADSTER meets the requirements of all major families of dough, and is particularly suited for traditional recipes with sourdough or “clean label”, while guaranteeing a longer preservation of finished products.

The KNEADSTER will also be presented in its Pastry version with tools adapted to pastry, cakes and biscuits. The KNEADSTER kneaders can be integrated in automated systems with shuttles to transport bowls, allowing for sponge & dough processes with resting or fermenting.

Watch the Kneadster Pastry video demonstration

Artisan & Retail Baking Booth

Before developing automated systems, VMI had been the legacy partner of artisan bakers for over 60 years. On booth #2605, VMI will exhibit its kneaders and planetary mixers for retail and independent bakers.

The brand’s iconic equipment will be exhibited at IBIE, such as the PH612 XV planetary mixer, the ideal partner to make biscuits, sponge cakes and Viennese pastry. It is also used in catering and in the food industry, allowing chefs to develop creams, sauces and ready-made dishes. In 2019, VMI planetary mixers have been upgraded to improve consistency and variety in the mixes. The programming of recipes (up to 20 recipes of 20 phases each) and the option to add a scraper after the purchase of the machine complete the features of the range, whose capacity goes from 20 to 80 litres.

Flagship equipment also includes the AF100 fermenter which ensures the homogenization, maturation and conservation of sourdough. With the AF COMPACT 100 EV, bakers are freed from the daily constraints of producing sourdough, and can focus on making old tradition breads and customizing production.

The GENIUS spiral mixer, the latest in the VMI range of kneaders, was designed to make the lives of artisan bakers easier, to allow for the diversity of recipes, while increasing productivity. Ease of use has been optimized down the smallest details: transparent cover with a door to protect bakers from flour dust, water supply to simplify flushing, reduction of retention areas for easier cleaning, pedal to move the kneader… The second forte of the GENIUS is to ensure a more homogeneous mix more quickly with a better quality of kneading. For all types of doughs, from the most resistant to the most hydrated. As it features a digital dashboard and dual tool-bowl speed variation, the GENIUS EV allows bakers to customize and record up to 10 recipes (of 30 phases each).

Watch the GENIUS video demonstration

Whether for smaller or more intensive production, the bakery industry has found in VMI its best ally to make the mixing process repeatable, consistent and versatile.

A Spotlight on Sustainability in Baking for Earth Day

For nearly 50 years, Earth Day has served as a reminder of how important it is for us all to be good stewards of our planet. At IBIE and Flowers Foods, we recognize that sustainability makes the industry stronger and increases profitability over the long term. Flowers is committed to applying sustainability processes to all aspects of its business. Working with team members, business partners, suppliers, and customers, we continually look to prevent waste of water, packaging, energy, and other resources.

In 2018, we established new sustainability goals for 2025 that will reduce manufacturing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 20% per metric ton of product, decrease water use 20% per metric ton of product, and achieve zero waste to landfill companywide (98% or greater diversion of waste from landfill). 

Some of our strategies for achieving our goals include replacing our lighting to energy-efficient LED bulbs and upgrading our compressed air systems. To date, 12 of our bakeries have been certified under the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program and five bakeries have achieved the ENERGY STAR challenge. 

In celebration of Earth Day, April 22nd, 2019, the International Baking Industry Exposition staff has pulled together an overview of sustainability practices within the baking industry. I recommend reading and hope you will be inspired and motivated to continuing pursuing your sustainability goals.

From ingredients to packaging to processes, the focus on sustainability touches every facet of modern baking. Growing “green” trends in the industry include opting for biodegradable over recyclable packaging, largely due to increased awareness of plastic’s presence in and effect on marine ecosystems. The demand for sustainable palm oil has also continued to rise and, today, there are 164 sites in the United States that are Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil certified (including many in the baking sector).

Sustainable energy and energy efficiency have also been big focus areas for food production companies recently and they come with an added bonus — smaller utility bills. Campbell Soup Co. recently reduced the electrical consumption at a manufacturing plant in Ohio by 15 percent after installing 25,000 solar panels. Similarly, a Pepperidge Farm plant in Connecticut is now capable of generating 100 percent of its electricity through two fuel cells and a 1 MW solar array.

Food waste has long been a global issue and the U.N Food and Agriculture Organization recently reported that more than 1 billion tons (approximately one third) of the food produced for human consumption is wasted. To address this huge problem, companies like Flowers Foods are setting (and reaching) lofty goals. The company is within 1 percent of its goal to reach 90 percent zero-waste-to-landfill. The Kroger Co. aims to become a fully zero-waste company by 2025 and has already joined with strategic partners, including Feeding America, in order to make this a reality.

There are seemingly endless ways that we, as members of the baking industry, can help create a healthier planet. And IBIE makes it easier than ever to shop sustainable suppliers—from organic and fair trade ingredients to zero waste equipment. Not to mention our BEST in Baking Industry Awards that recognize suppliers that foster energy conservation, reduced water usage, a decrease in landfill waste, healthy living and/ or a reduction of the overall impact on the environment. These suppliers will be featured in the BEST in Baking Lounge in the Grand Lobby and designated in the Official IBIE Directory.

This Earth Day let us know about the great things your company is doing for our planet by nominating it for a BEST in Baking award in Sustainability. This category honors suppliers and bakers that are working to reduce their impact on the environment through the equipment, ingredients, packaging and technology that they use. In an effort to provide a better future for our world and our industry by showcasing bakers and suppliers who are doing outstanding things, the BEST in Baking awards now include three new categories: Sanitation, Product Innovation and Workforce Development. Learn more about the BEST in Baking program categories and nominate your business now!
