The BreadBot at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Conference-goers were able to enjoy the experience of how The BreadBot, a machine that goes to from flour to loaf all on its own, harnesses the marvels of modern technology to take us back to the old world with its artisan bread that is tasty and nutritious.
At CES, the BreadBot was on the display and on the menu. Everyone was invited to taste its healthy, flavourful bread, and view it being produced in a fully transparent process, so you can see exactly when, where and how your bread is being made. The BreadBot is located throughout the week at Booth #31803 in the High-Tech Retailing area of South Hall 3 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).

The BreadBot mixes, forms, proofs, bakes and cools ten loaves of bread per hour – all on its own and is capable of making most varieties of bread that require dry ingredients – including white, wheat, whole wheat, nine grain, sourdough and honey oat. The bread can even be organic if preferred!

“Bread is a staple of American life. But in most supermarkets today, it has lost its emotional connection with the shopper,” said Randall Wilkinson, CEO of The Wilkinson Baking Company. “In the age of home delivery, The BreadBot attracts consumers back to the store because it delivers fresh, delicious bread that is produced with theater and engagement. We’re so excited to bring CES back to basics with The BreadBot this year and to demonstrate how we have increased retailers’ bread sales by more than 30 percent while also decreasing the environmental impact.”
