70 years of history
Creation of the Machines Bertrand company by an engineer, Mr Bertrand. He invents a machine that will revolutionize the work of the baker: the moulding.
Installation in Nevers in larger and more modern premises.
Acquisition of the company by the English industrial group AGA Food Service on 8 September 2004.
The AGA Food Service group has decided to sell its entire BtoB (business-to-business) division, of which Bertrand-Puma is a part, to the Italian group ALI S.p.A.
The new fermentolevain is released: - The stainless steel finishes are of better quality and more modern - Modernization of the cleaning and hygiene - An opening, protected by a grid, allows to introduce directly the ingredients in the tank - A plexiglass allows visual control without affecting hygiene
Release of the new DIVITRAD : The legendary DiviTrad®, used for so many years, is back with a brand new design and new features, under the name DiviTrad® Legend. Versatile, DiviTrad® is equipped with knives allowing a cut in 20 square pieces. It allows both the "classic" division before proofing and the "traditional" division to work directly and bake immediately.
Output of the Nova Soft roller machine and the Nova Trad process : The bakery profession has evolved over the last few decades. While tradition and know-how remain at the heart of the job, reducing arduousness has become a major concern. Aware of the need to help bakers save time and increase productivity without compromising quality, Bertrand-Puma has created the NOVA TRAD process: a complete process with delayed proofing, focused on bread quality and dedicated to improving the way we organize and work in order to increase productivity and work comfort.
Exit of the Abyss plunge arm mixer : BYSS twin-arm mixers perfectly reproduce the artisan’s gesture by gently kneading all types of dough — from the most hydrated to the most complex — for optimal oxygenation without overheating. ABYSS is particularly suited to demanding bakers who are aware of the importance of kneading in the bread-making process.
