Who We Are

Serving up stories that are shaping the commercial baking industry.

Commercial Baking is the premier source of information for industry decision makers.

Rooted in service to the industry and founded on commitment, service and respect, Commercial Baking, the flagship publication of Avant Food Media, sifts through the noise in bakery B2B media by offering content that focuses on quality without compromise. Our content is 100% focused on baking.

Through a mix of targeted quarterly publications, multimedia content and our Troubleshooting Innovation podcast, we take a deep dive into the latest trends and the cutting-edge supplier innovations that support them. Two annual special editions shine the spotlight on new products and innovations.

Commercial Baking … new thought for food.
