The visitors were impressed with the content exhibition of old bakery machines and equipment brought out of the company’s business partners’ basements. Antique inventory included a mixer with a handle, a planetary mixer, a dough divider, a sheeter, a roll making machine, a rotary biscuits machine, a yeast measurement, a sugar and nuts mill and a number of other small accessories.
