Betty’s cake rack coolers

Rack cooling system for leading retail bakery

The Outcomes:

  • Increased product output
  • Consistent product quality
  • Reduced floor space requirements

The Challenge:

Betty’s, the well-known Yorkshire craft baker, wanted to increase the output of their popular Yorkshire Tealoaf and Ginger Cakes by reducing cooling times without compromising their quality.

The Solution:

We were asked to undertake on-site cooling trials to establish the best cooling regime for each product. We designed a rack-cooling system comprising multiple bays, each capable of accommodating four product racks. Within each bay an adjustable baffle arrangement ensured optimum airflow over the products. Products could be cooled to less than 30°C in under 45 minutes to enable swift packing and dispatch.
