Puratos is taking a proactive approach in helping today’s bakers create delightful product offerings. It is Puratos’ promise to enable the bakers deliver three key attributes across every dessert preparation – health, freshness and taste.
A thorough due diligence conducted by Puratos on consumer preferences known as Taste Tomorrow survey revealed how Indian consumers value a perfect blend of ‘Freshness’, ‘Healthiness’ and ‘Taste’ when buying bread, pastry or patisserie or chocolate. As per the survey, India shows a high level of support for the ‘open-oven’ idea: 76% of consumers in India would appreciate a bakery where they can see the oven and bakery items being baked on the spot. The survey also highlighted that 79% of Indian consumers would buy more products at bakeries where everything is baked with natural ingredients. 80% are aware that bread contains wholegrain/ wholemeal. No less than 86% find it a healthy ingredient and 75% feel it adds something to the taste. 77% are aware that pastry can contain fruit filling; no less than 87% find it enhances the healthiness, and 88% feel it adds to the taste

Staying close to its customers i.e. bakers everywhere, and turning technology and experiences from food cultures around the world into new opportunities to help them be more successful in their business, lies at the heart of Puratos’ ‘Partnering Tomorrow’ endeavour.
