Bakery School EL SALVADOR


In February 2023 we opened our 11th Bakery School in Santa Ana, El Salvador, the first of its kind for the country. The Bakery School will provide quality education and employment opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in a state-of-the-art environment, fostering a positive impact on their lives and prospects.

Although global demand for breads, cakes and pastries is on the rise, there are not enough bakers to meet this demand in El Salvador. The Puratos Bakery School Foundation recognizes this skill shortage and aims to make a positive impact by providing meaningful training and market-leading ingredients to young people. The program not only empowers students to shape their own futures, but also plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the bakery, patisserie and chocolate industries.

We believe that by establishing our Bakery School here in El Salvador, we can make real differences to the lives of young people, their families and communities, as well as contribute to industry growth. Our mission is to provide a launchpad for careers in the bakery, patisserie, and/or chocolate sectors for individuals who may otherwise not have had the opportunity. It’s been a true pleasure watching students all over the world thrive when given the right resources and we can’t wait to witness the next generation of bakers make their mark,” states Mazzella Giuseppe, General Manager of Puratos El Salvador.
