Twelve bakery schools across the globe

Over the past years the Bakery School Foundation opened twelve Bakery Schools across the globe. The first school was in India, followed by Brazil, Mexico, South-Africa, Romania (2), Portugal, the Philippines, the US, Lebanon, El Salvador and most recently Vietnam.

At the Foundation we really take this project at heart! That’s why we are very proud to announce that we are preparing the opening of three new Bakery Schools in Turkey, Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic in the course of 2024. We hope many others will follow!

The schools bring a hopeful future to underprivileged youngsters, it provides much-needed financial support to their families and finally it creates skilled labor and benefits the whole community.

No doubt that we want to further spread the magic!

We believe that the growing Bakery, Patisserie and Chocolate sector will continue to have a lack of well trained and skilled labor in the future.


We are committed to have an important impact on the life of underprivileged youngsters by training them to become future Bakers, Patisseries and Chocolatiers.
