Passionate bakers known for their delicious breads and pastries, the team at Kenis Bakery, a cherished family-owned bakery based in Belgium faced a challenge during the hot summer months. The existing air treatment system in their production facilities was unable to control the relative humidity, which affected product quality.
Kenis Bakery started as a family business in 1986.
A summertime challenge
After expanding to larger premises, Kenis Bakery discovered that the existing air treatment system was not sufficient to address summertime humidity, resulting in spongy bread and pistolets (small Belgian bread rolls), which lacked the desired crispness. To ensure consistent and optimal bread quality, regardless of weather conditions, Kenis Bakery turned to Munters for help.
As an air treatment specialist, Munters understood the importance of optimum air quality in the bakery and offered a tailor-made air-drying solution. The Munters solution efficiently extracts moist air from the room, creating a perfectly balanced environment for the bread and pistolets to cool quickly and evenly without affecting quality.
”With the help of the Munters industrial dehumidification system, we can always serve our customers the crispest breads, even during the hottest summer days! The investment in a Munters dehumidifier has brought about a significant quality improvement for both our bread and pistolets.”
Glenn Kenis, the owner of Kenis Bakery
Irresistibly fresh and crisp bread, no matter the weather
The Munters system reduces humidity in the production area by blowing dry air over the bread and pistolets when they come out of the oven. The dry air absorbs the moisture that the bread releases as it cools, which ensures that both the pistolets and bread are crispy and maintain optimal texture during transport to sales locations. As a result, Kenis Bakery’ customers can always enjoy fresh, crisp bread and pistolets all year round.
“We have found the perfect balance between craftsmanship and technology,” says Glenn Kenis, the owner of Kenis Bakery. “With the help of the Munters industrial dehumidification system, we can always serve our customers the crispest breads, even during the hottest summer days! The investment in a Munters dehumidifier has brought about a significant quality improvement for both our bread and pistolets.”
