The bakery delivers more than a million loaves every day of the week throughout the UK and Ireland. It sought to replace all its existing rack ovens, which had become outdated after many years of use. 

Having first worked with EPP in 1997 when it needed a roll plant, the bakery once again reached out to see if EPP could provide a suitable solution. The bakery opted to invest in six MIWE roll-in e+ large rack ovens. EPP is the exclusive supplier of MIWE products in the UK and Ireland.

“The installation delivered greater line efficiencies, capability, throughput and quality,” said Stewart Morris, sales director at EPP. “As costs increase for both ingredients and utilities, the importance of energy consumption is even more pressing, and MIWE is able to ensure that products are baked with minimal heating time.”

The installation was completed in April 2022. Among the energy-saving features of the new ovens, MIWE air control guarantees excellent crusts at temperatures up to 15°C lower than normal ovens, with adjustable hermetic seals to keep steam and heat in the oven. It also offers an enhanced touch screen control system. The roll-in e+ can generate savings of 10-15% over comparable models, and even more when compared to older rack ovens.
