Brief History

Welcome to the Society of Bakery Women website. Our organization was founded in 1998 by several women attending the American Society of Baking Technical Conference in hopes of providing a networking organization for women in the baking industry and to mentor students of milling and baking science that are entering the baking field as a career.

We hold an annual event every year to gather both professionals and students in the baking industry. We also have an event during the IBIE (International Baking Industry Expo) every three years. We hope you visit and enjoy the SBW website, and we welcome comments and suggestions for additions to this new resource for women in the baking industry.
