Take A Free Tour At The Most Most Modern Bread Factory In The Country
Who knew that one of the country’s leading educational tours takes place in a…bakery
With more than 2.5 million visitors in the last 10 years, majority of whom are students from 15,000 different schools, this obviously isn’t your run-of-the-mill neighborhood panaderia.
It is the company’s pride and joy where, each day, 650,000 loaves of bread and snack items are produced in a fully automated facility, untouched by human hands. Gardenia’s plant in Laguna is toured by as much as 3,000 to 8,000 visitors a day.
Baking breads untouched by human hands
The plant tour aims to impart to the students the knowledge about modern bread production that is untouched by human hands. Additionally, it promotes the importance of proper nutrition and sanitation practices as foundations to a healthy mind and body, and as well values education.
While Gardenia’s secrets to success will be shared to visitors via an audio-visual presentation (AVP), the most exciting part of the program is the actual catwalk tour of the visitors as they enjoy viewing the complete plant facility and step-by-step process of baking breads, the Gardenia way. Nobody leaves the factory without taking their good poses with a bread sample at the photo opportunity areas. No wonder they cannot forget their unusual field trip, baking breads untouched by human hands!
Making bread the Gardenia way is fascinating and educational for kids and adults alike - to see how staple food, like bread, is made on such a massive scale.
To view thousands of loaves stacked in tiers on two spiral coolers and know that only the finest ingredients from all over the world are used, is an awe-inspiring and fun learning experience
The process makes children respect the food they eat and teaches them to appreciate the lengths the people of Gardenia go through to make sure the bread they get is fresh, safe, delicious and nutritious.
Giving a unique learning experience and values enhancement
The tour serves as an educational and informational activity providing visitors a unique learning experience. Gardenia’s free plant tour is another manifestation of Gardenia’s commitment to people. It is educational but also equally fascinating, delightful and delicious—thanks to the free samples that welcome visitors at the end of the tour.
Like everything else it does, Gardenia has taken the extra step—a bold step, when one considers the time, expense and logistics of hosting thousands of visitors per day—to accommodate you and take a free tour to the most modern bread factory ever in the country.
