Benefits of memberships with ASB.

We are a community committed to the commercial baking industry.

We represent the bakers in the commercial baking industry. The people who make the product, oversee the production, manage the teams, research, and develop the new products, evaluate and taste-test as new packaging is rolled out, solve quality issues, plan logistics, purchase equipment and ingredients, manage the supply chain… all the ins and outs of modern food manufacturing.

ASB membership isn’t limited to only bakers, but rather we are inclusive to all who serve the commercial and retail baking industry. But those who bake are at the heart ASB’s membership.

We are collaborative. Bring us your ideas on how to engage with the members and audiences involved with ASB and let us partner with you to make it happen.

We are innovative. Our history is integral to who we are today, but we are poised for growth and innovation. Fresh ideas and passion for what we do inspires our work in service to our members and the partners we serve.

We are focused on education. ASB’s role in the industry has always been defined by representing the bakers and providing a community for learning and networking, one based in science and practice.  The Bakers’ Creed established in 1924 when ASB was founded defined our mission then and guides our vision as we look to the future.
