Greggs are currently the largest bakery chain in the UK. They specialise in savoury products such as pasties, sausage rolls, sandwiches and sweet items including doughnuts and vanilla slices. The company has grown steadily over the years, and now has over 1,600 outlets, with many town and city centres having more than one store.
Given Greggs’ expertise in all areas of baking, it is vital to ensure they are not only using the best standard of equipment to produce their food, but also that they use top quality oil to cook with. Their latest acquisition of a testo 270 cooking oil tester will help them to optimise oil consumption.
We talked to Baking expert Colin Berry, of Greggs North West, based in Manchester, who recently bought a testo 270 to test their oil when frying donuts. “We recently purchased a testo 270 cooking oil tester and are very impressed with the equipment” said Berry, “It’s easy to use and calibrate and very easy to read the display, leaving no room for errors.”
