The Baking Development Center (BDC)

The Baking Development Centre was founded in 2000 to provide training programmes to Sudan’s baking and pastry industry.  The BDC welcomes all students from throughout the industry and our courses are free of charge to all who register, regardless of their professional background or level of ability.

The BDC adopts a scientific approach to the art of baking and instils a renewed understanding of the bakery process to Sudanese bakers across the industry. More than 7,200 are trained every year in the resident school, helping to improve product quality and diversity for the benefit of their customers or family. Since 2001, DAL Food has trained a total of bakers and 48,200 housewives across 79 cities in Sudan within the mobile school. So far 180,000 had been trained since the beginning of the program, 50,000 from baking industry and 130,000 from the community

The BDC also voluntarily educates Sudanese households in the art of baking and pastry making. This helps to improve domestic cookery skills and provides valuable training which is useful in both at home and in the workplace.
