Our trade affiliations:
British Society of Baking
RedBlack Software managing director Jane Tyler is the vice chair of the British Society of Baking, which was founded in 1955 as an affiliate of the American Society of Bakery Engineers.
Its purpose is to provide a forum for learning more about the industry through conferences and events, together with networking and the exchange of ideas between members. RedBlack Software is an official associate member and we attend both of the BSB’s key conferences each year.
Scottish Bakers was established in 1891 and represents and promotes the interests of the bakery trade in Scotland.
As well as being a long-term sponsor of this key industry body, CyBake is Scottish Bakers’ preferred bakery software partner. Watch out for the special bakery management workshops we hold with the organisation.
Craft Bakers Association
The Craft Bakers’ Association (CBA) was formed in 1887 and currently represents 600 members and 2,000 shops throughout the UK.
As well as being an official supporter of the CBA, CyBake exhibits at each annual conference and we regularly attend its other events. The CBA Yorkshire Region’s annual dinner dance is a particularly favourite fixture in the CyBake team’s diary.
Sustain – The Real Bread Campaign
Part of the charity Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, the Real Bread Campaign fights for better bread in Britain. We want everyone to have the chance to choose Real Bread.
Starting with a basic definition of Real Bread simply as being made without the use of any artificial additives, the Campaign seeks, finds and shares ways to make bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.
Building on our success to date, we are now working to secure funding to help us unlock the social, therapeutic and employment opportunities offered by making Real Bread by hand. In this we aim to help people facing social exclusion due to a range of factors that might put them at a disadvantage, including living with mental health issues or physical disabilities.
The Real Bread Campaign was co-founded by Sustain and Andrew Whitley of Bread Matters.
