Biscuit, Cookie & Cracker Innovation Center: Grand Rapids, MI

Baker Perkins offers facilities for customers to develop new products and processes, produce samples for test marketing, and conduct feasibility trials.  This Innovation Center contains a wide range of production and laboratory scale equipment dedicated to the cookie and cracker industries. 

Thorough, confidential trials

Companies from every part of the world find that thorough trials, often using their own local raw materials, provide a reliable basis for trouble-free commissioning of a new plant or the launch of a new product.  Total confidentiality is guaranteed.

Wide range of equipment

The Innovation Center has a pilot scale line producing wirecut, rotary moulded, chewy / hard granola and co-extruded type products.

A 60 foot long Multi-Media tunnel oven simulates recirculating, impingement and Direct Gas Fired (DGF) modes of operation to meet most baking needs.   There is also a 12 foot long Enerjet oven capable of reducing bake time up to 40%.

A mixer, creamer and chocolate aeration system are also available.

Specialty units

This range of equipment is permanently available, and specialty units can be brought in if necessary to complete a process.  Alternatively, customers are welcome to bring along their own technologies to integrate within our existing equipment.
