As one of the sponsors of National Bakery Day, Corbion looks to shine a light on independent retail bakeries. With that in mind, the company held a special giveaway in support of its local bakeries.

On Friday, September 27, the Lenexa, Kansas-based Corbion invited its employees to give local bakeries their business. They could then bring in the baked goods they purchased to Corbion’s North American headquarters to drop off between 8 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.

Over 50 different employees brought in baked goods for a tasting event in the morning and were given a raffle ticket to enter into a drawing for one of two Kitchen Aid stand-up mixers or other prizes.

Among the Lenexa-area bakeries that were supported through this giveaway were McClain’s Bakery, Bloom Baking Co., The Pantry KC, Big Momma’s KC, and many more.
