It doesn’t feel like Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery is 100 years old, and that’s partly because we have changed names, formats, management, ownership and staffs several times throughout our long existence. The world is obviously completely different today than when we got started. To honor the past and look ahead to the future, we show you a glimpse of baking’s progress over the last century: The accomplishments; the discoveries; the evolution of products; and amusing stories. Selecting the important moments that took place to include in this synopsis wasn’t easy, because the industry is rich with hundreds and thousands of events and occurrences.
While we certainly can’t provide a comprehensive history of baking in the short space we have here, we wanted to provide a slice of the many highlights.
