A regional bakery customer wanted an egg-free bakery glaze that delivered a premium golden shine to buns. They sought a product that was easy to use—for example, a bakery glaze that didn’t require dilution—and one that was more consistent than the product they were currently using, which they deemed as unreliable and ineffective.
Kerry’s bakery team had received similar product requests, leading them to develop off-the-shelf solutions for customers. To help this bakery customer, the Golden Gloss bakery glaze was suggested. Golden Gloss does not require dilution and is stable throughout its shelf-life, which eliminates the common market problem of solutions that thicken and gum up machines or stick to pans. The customer appreciated that the product was ready to use, delivered consistent results, was cost competitive and was produced in two sites and available from three stocking locations within North America.
Kerry’s team of technical and applications experts were able to quickly and successfully transition the bakery to using Golden Gloss bakery glaze. The team was available onsite at the bakery to alleviate any challenges with the transition as well as to provide support and education in working with the product and ensuring the finished bun applications had a consistent, golden shine.
