Bakels frozen products are in an unbaked form and need thawing, proving and baking.

To improve quality we have installed a blast freezer which gives us the capacity to freeze 1500 croissants to a core temperature of -18oC in only 30 minutes. By blast freezing, the dough retains necessary qualities and with correct proving and baking the final product is excellent.
