Training course helps Pukka Pies reduce pastry waste by 40%
Pukka Pies is an independent family company that sells approximately 60 million pies a year. A group from the
production and technical departments of Pukka Pies attended a
Campden BRI training course on pastry technology.
During the wastage reduction part of the pastry processing module, the Pukka Pies team mentioned that they consistently
created a significant amount of scrap dough during their production processes.

To solve the problem, Pukka Pies liaised further with us and invested in an extensive
internal work programme on waste reduction.
Armed with this expertise, they
redesigned their production processes for this product, and
invested in new machinery and training.
Their work with us, the training and the waste reduction programme resulted in Pukka Pies reducing their pastry waste
by around 40% for the chosen product in their portfolio, as well as
increasing its production efficiency.
Phil Smith, Operations Manager at Pukka Pies said,
With the help of Campden BRI we were able to train 10 employees in pastry technology. With a new understanding of
pastry and the science behind it we were then able to re-design our production processes and reduce our pastry waste by around 40% on
one particular product. Investment in new machinery and technology and investing in our people in the form of focused and meaningful
training has played a major part in our continued success. The bespoke training that Campden BRI was able to offer us has been invaluable
and will continue to help move our business forward in the future."
