Calling all young bakers

Premier Foods is giving school caterers more time to recruit a team of enthusiastic young bakers to enter its third annual McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year competition. Teams now have until Friday 31st March to get their entries in.

Sarah Robb, channel marketing manager at Premier Foods, told Wholesale News: “We are thrilled this competition has excited caterers for the third year running and it is great to see so many schools keen to get involved. We are extending the deadline for registration to give caterers a little more time to get their teams together and would urge anyone that wants to take part to register now, before it’s too late.”

The new deadline still leaves plenty of time for teams to receive their McDougalls toolkits, within which they will find product samples, application forms and recipe inspiration. The toolkits are designed to assist schools with their entries, giving them the best chance to be crowned champions at this year’s LACA – The Main Event.

To make it to the live final, teams must create one sweet and one savoury recipe, meeting the ‘local ingredient’ theme. The recipes will be judged by a panel of judges including representatives from LACA, the Craft Guild of Chefs and Premier Foods.

To register your interest now, simply log on to our website at and enter your contact details by Friday 31st March.
