SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Just Desserts announced that it has invested in an industry-leading Babbco Air Impingement Tunnel Oven that will support the company’s expansion.
“We are very pleased with the Babbco tunnel oven, as it has improved quality, consistency, and throughput”
Michael J. Mendes, CEO of Just Desserts, led an extensive process to identify the most technologically advanced oven to support the company’s rapid growth. “We are very pleased with the Babbco tunnel oven, as it has improved quality, consistency, and throughput,” said Mendes. He adds, “The impingement baking technology has improved moisture retention, which is a significant consumer benefit.” The state of the art impingement oven bakes 35% faster than the prior direct-fired oven, and has independent top and bottom heat controls resulting in a very even bake.
The oven’s integrated loader has provided seamless product flow through the Just Desserts production bakery. Bill Foran, CEO of Babbco said, “We were very pleased to work with Just Desserts, and our oven capabilities are well-suited to the diverse baking needs of the growing bakery.” Mendes of Just Desserts noted, “Bill Foran, Frank Achterberg and the Babbco/CBF team were reliable and effective partners throughout the process, and very engaged during our installation and start-up.”
The investment in the industry-leading Babbco tunnel oven is amongst the most recent investments made by Just Desserts. Mendes adds, “We are excited about these growth investments in support of our commitment to customers and consumers.” Last year, Just Desserts opened a new 75,000 square foot production bakery on a 7-acre site in Fairfield, California. The bakery includes an over 11,600 square foot freezer, dedicated CCOF organic certified production area, and an on-site lab with a focus on food safety, quality, and reliability.
