The Bakpro National Baking Competition 2012 launched at the Tourism Expo earlier this month.
The aim is to entice the best local bakers to come up with their wonderful oven concoctions and at the same time, compete for the title of Baking King.
“The winner in the amateur category will receive a total of N$30,000 while the winning bakery receives Bakpro products to the value of N$20,000 and participating bakers each receive N$5,000” explained Margareth Gustavo, Marketing Manager at Namib Mills.
In the Amateur category the runner-up will receive a total of N$10,000, while the third place will receive N$5,000. In the Professional baker (Pro-baker) category, the runner-up and third place bakeries will receive Bakpro products to the value of N$5,000 and participating bakers will receive N$1,000 each.
Bakers in the amateur category must not be involved with the baking industry professionally. Entrants in the professional category must earn their living from baking.
The baking competition runs over several months with the finals set for 05 and 06 October in Windhoek. Qualifying rounds have started and are taking place in Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Ongwediva, Keetmanshoop, Gobabis and Otjiwarongo. “We are also proud to announce that a surprise guest will host the finals, which will add even more excitement to the competition,” says Margareth.
The judges for the regionals and the finals are:Hantie Jansen, Andrew Muller and Rodger du Plessis. Roger Daugherty, one of Namibia’s favourite bakers will be in Namibia serving as an external judge at the finals.
