At Puratos, we understand that industrial customers have very different needs to artisans, foodservice companies and supermarkets. That is why Industrial Patisserie Competence Centre (IPCC) was established at our headquarters in Belgium, offering industrial patisserie and sweet goods producers fully-equipped test centres dedicated to technological innovation and process optimisation.
Our IPCC helps customers by providing them with all the facilities and tools they need to boost their patisserie business.
One of our main focuses at the IPCC is research. We always make sure to be up-to-date with the latest patisserie trends and spend a great deal of time and energy conducting ground-breaking research into patisserie ingredients, interactions, processes and – in conjunction with equipment manufacturers – technologies. As a result, visitors to the IPCC have a wealth of expertise at their disposal.
At the IPCC, collaboration with our customer is key. This combined expertise enables us to develop new finished goods and concepts, discover new ingredients, and reflect on how to optimise their production lines. Our state-of-the-art facilities also allow customers to try potential solutions in a test environment before implementing them on their own production lines.
The IPCC provides the perfect setting for training on an industrial production line. Boasting a range of pilot equipment set in a realistic production environment, the IPCC offers customers and affiliates a chance to train in the most useful way possible.
The IPCC is supported by a team of technical and R&D managers and advisors who are experts in industrial application and processes. Not only do they provide a high degree of expertise to customers on the premises, but they also visit our patisserie customers to ensure they have industry-leading support on their own production lines.
