Bread Masters

As bread preferences continue to evolve, we asked three bakery equipment suppliers about their companies and popular product lines.

CEO and owner
Bimatic sarl

What can you tell us about your company?
Bimatic is a family business at heart. My father, Haj Ahmad Mohamed Bakri, established the company in 1955. We were pioneers in manufacturing and developing automatic production lines for Lebanese bread, which is in huge demand worldwide, and we are always following the latest trends, upgrading and developing our machinery to respond to our clients’ needs and the needs of the market. A long time ago, we introduced a famous slogan to describe our machinery: “Your loaf that hands do not touch.”

Have you released any new products recently?
The most recent product manufactured by our company was the bread stacker, which we released in 2019. It is an automatic machine that stacks bread, speeding up the production rate.

What is your best-selling product?
Our automated production lines for Arabic bread are very popular, producing between 300 to 12,000 loaves per hour depending on our clients’ needs. The high-quality, heavy duty lines can operate continuously for long hours. They are easy to use, clean and maintain, and can be manufactured to fit in supermarkets, restaurants and bakeries.

What are the newest technologies in bakery equipment?
Lebanese bread production equipment has been consistent for a while now, but the latest innovations revolve around automatic counting, stacking and bagging, which is what we’re trying to creatively innovate and revamp.

What is your best-selling product?
The automatic bread counting and stacking machine facilitates the process while optimizing it. The job becomes flawless and more hygienic, removing the need for human intervention and the risk of error.
