Junk food won’t be sold at the bakery opened on the premises of a school

CHENNAI: This will be one special bakery as far as the health conscious are concerned. It has just the right smell and warm feel of a bakery but has low sugar pastries, whole wheat pizzas and French loaves with extra fibre.

The new branch of Winners Bakery and Confectionary on Santhome High Road, which was inaugurated on Thursday, would cater to the needs of those who keep a constant watch on their calorie intake.

The branch was inaugurated by Father Arulanandan, Rector and Correspondent of St. Bede’s School in the presence of Father Thomas, the school administrator, Father Jegath Gaspar Raj of Tamil Maiyam and Father Xavier Vedam, Vice Principal, and Director Loyola Outreach, Loyola College.

M.Mahadevan of Hot Breads said that as the bakery was located on the premises of St.Bede’s School they wanted to provide healthy edibles.

“We will not supply any junk food here”, he said.

He said that over 120 students who received training at Winners Bakery and Confectionary, which is a part of the Bhimannanpettai Corporation Community College, had been placed.

“They learn to make 400 breads here whereas in other catering colleges the number is very less. Here they have exposure in baking as well as front office management.”

The bakery is a joint venture of the Chennai Corporation, Rotary Club of Madras East and Chennai Culinary Institute and provides free training to youngsters between 16 and 25 years from economically backward families, said S. S. Rajsekar, Managing Trustee National Agro Foundation and former chairman of the Club.
