Federation of Bakers forms new private company

The Federation of Bakers formally announced yesterday (30th May 2019) that the organisation will now be managed as a private limited company, Federation of Bakers Limited.

The announcement was made at the first Annual General Meeting of the newly formed company.

The change follows a review by the Federation of Bakers of its constitution and rules during the past year, which concluded with the transition of the organisation to a company, limited by guarantee without a share capital.

Mike Roberts, Chairman of the Federation of Bakers Ltd said: “This change will enable the Federation to continue its work on behalf of its members representing, promoting and defending the bread industry with the added security for members that this new company brings.”

At the AGM, in addition to reviewing activities of the previous year, the Federation published its 2019 Annual Report and List of Members which can be downloaded from the Federation’s website at www.fob.uk.com.

Gordon Polson, Chief Executive of the Federation of Bakers Ltd added: “The last 12 months have been dominated by regulatory issues and the ever evolving developments on Brexit. FOB Ltd continues to work hard on behalf of its members to closely monitor these fast-moving developments and emerging challenges and opportunities for the industry.”

The Annual General Meeting was held ahead of the start of the 36th AIBI Congress in Manchester, which runs from 30th  May to 2nd June and will consider ‘The Bakery of the Future’.
