New Horizons perfects the art of producing more with fewer s.k.u.s
NORWALK, OHIO — In the beginning, there was a bun line. That was in 1967 at New Horizons’ headquarters in Norwalk. Back then, the company was all about saying yes and being the best. A self-professed “baker’s baker,” New Horizons specialized in contract manufacturing for food service accounts and branded products. “We’ve never had our own label,” said Trina Bediako, president and chief operating officer at New Horizons. “We never wanted to compete with our retail customers.”
Improving Muffin Griddle Performance
Our focus over the years has been on improving bakery oven performance for tunnel and tray ovens. While this has been an important focus for Banner-Day, we have also brought improvements to the operation of muffin griddles with a resulting increase in product quality and consistency.
