Bake Skills Australia hand over announced

After more than 30 years at the helm of coordinating and overseeing the Bake Skills Australia Championships, Craig Perry and Allstates DCP Marketing Services are passing on the baton.

The Baking Association of Australia (BAA) will be the new custodians of the time-honoured event.

Craig said the objective of Bake Skills – to support quality, training and professionalism in baking – will remain unchanged.

“It’s been a wonderful journey over these many years, seeing and meeting so many talented young bakers and pastry chefs who’ve taken the opportunity that Bake Skills provides to show off their skills,” he said.

“However, the time is now right for someone like the BAA to become the new custodians.

“The event partners and sponsors who have helped fund and drive the Bake Skills opportunity were happy once we explained the reasons and why we believe the BAA have the reputation and infrastructure to keep up the great work carried by industry so far.”

BAA executive officer Tony Smith said the board were honoured to be approached by Craig.

“As a peak body in Australia that oversees many industry events, the BAA will work with all industry partners to ensure the Bake Skills Championships stay exactly how it has been formatted,” he said.

“The BAA is pleased and looking forward to working on the Bake Skills Championships with Fine Foods as they celebrate 40 years.

“2024 is going to be very special for everyone involved.”
