(AP) For years, many of the country’s biggest bakeries have moved their production overseas.
But as the world’s population shrinks and demand for baked goods increases, some are considering a comeback.
The new breed of American bakeries has taken advantage of globalization.
They’re making bread, cookies, pastries and cupcakes, and now, with fewer workers, they’re opening new U.S. locations to expand their footprint.
“It’s a whole new level of quality control,” said Bill Schulz, owner of Bill Schulz Baking Company in Burlington, Vermont.
“They have to be really, really good.”
They have been a mainstay of the U.K. for years.
But the British market has declined as the British economy has grown and people have moved to other nations, including the United States.
Now, there are more Americans baking at Bill Schuler Baking Co., which makes all its goods in the U, U.N. and the UB bakeries.
More than 100 bakeries are opening or expanding in the United Kingdom.
Last year, the U., U.B.C., the UK., the United Nations and the World Food Program spent more than $1 billion supporting British bakeries, according to a report from the London-based advocacy group Bread and Butter International.
The organizations’ support has helped them attract the best talent from around the world and grow their business.
The rise of American-made baking products has also been driven by technology.
Baking is a skill that has always been taught at home, and the industry is embracing it.
In the U in particular, the shift has created a new breed in baking, said Kristin Hovland, chief marketing officer at the UBS Global Business Development Group.
“The industry is looking to move into this new frontier, and I think the people who are most excited about that are people who have had a passion for baking and baking for years and years,” she said.
Bread and Butter, which helps U.s. companies create and grow a range of products, has been involved in baking since 1998.
It has been investing in American bakerry for years, including in the UK, which has a history of exporting baked goods.
The group recently spent $1.8 million in partnership with American bakerie maker Foursquare and launched a bakery in Burlington.
It is now expanding to Washington, where it is planning to open another bakery in 2017.
The goal is to reach 100 bakerys in the next four years.
“We’ve been in this business for over 15 years, and we’ve seen how successful the U U. and U.U.
B is,” said Dan Smith, the company’s chief executive.
“It has been an amazing success story.
We’re really excited about it.”
