WOMEN in Mutare have formed the first Bak­ers Guild that seeks to en­hance qual­ity of prod­ucts and im­prove bak­ing skills in bak­ers across the city.

Mutare Bak­ers Guild, founded early this year is a non-profit al­liance of pas­sion­ate and pro­fes­sional bak­ers, sup­pli­ers, stu­dents, home bak­ers and bak­ery own­ers and man­agers that seeks to pro­duce world class qual­ity cakes.

Speak­ing on the side­lines of the sec­ond guild meet­ing held at Light­house Chris­tian cen­tre last week, chair­per­son of Mutare Bak­ers Guild, Chris­tine Rush­waya said that the guild was brought into ex­is­tence by pas­sion­ate bak­ers dot­ted across the city.

“Mutare Bak­ers Guild was of­fi­cially formed by a group of pas­sion­ate bak­ers on Fe­bru­ary 10 with bak­ers from around Mutare gath­er­ing to form an ad­min­is­tra­tive com­mit­tee.

“The guild com­prises pro­fes­sional bak­ers, home bak­ers, stu­dents and any­one who loves cake bak­ing and dec­o­rat­ing,” she said.

The guild mainly com­prises 60 fe­male bak­ers and is open to en­try by any­one with a pas­sion for cakes and cake mak­ing.
