What our members are saying

“I would like to thank the team at NBIA for all the help and guidance that the association provides. Craig Pollard has been a great help with assistance with the complex wage change challenges. The Membership Pack with various signs has been a very useful within our business. Having just recently put two part-time apprentices on we are about to join the team of apprentice/trainer with your organisation; both apprentices are keen to learn. A big thank you for your help.”

“The NBIA has created a great networking opportunity and enabled us to grow in the baking industry. Our partnership includes having UNOX ovens on site to the benefit of both organisations with trainers and apprentices of NBIA utilising a market leader in ovens and allowing our Active Marketing Chef’s a fantastic facility to conduct demonstrations for bakers and industry partners.

NBIA also hosts promotional days which allow us to boost our brand recognition by always having our signage and marketing collateral on display. We are continuing to grow within the baking industry thanks to the continued support from NBIA and BITA.”
