Despite the on-going pandemic and through the efforts and great teamwork of Puratos Philippines team, the renovation and furnishing of the school was completed in less than a month.
On September 23, 2021 the Bakery School Philippines was unveiled through a simple soft opening program and blessing of the building facilities.
October 4th, 2021 marked the official opening of classes for the first batch of twenty scholars. A zoom orientation was organized while face to face classes were not yet allowed due to the pandemic.
As early as now, some of Puratos Philippines’ customers and partners in the industry have expressed their support to provide internships and jobs for the scholars. Senior baking professionals from the industry have expressed interest to provide free special sessions and mentorships as well.
This is a remarkable milestone in the history of Puratos in the Philippines and the team will remain steadfast and dedicated to the group’s mission to provide equal opportunity to underprivileged kids and produce skilled bakers to uplift the baking industry in the country.
