The Bread of the Year 2022 has been decided: the Scientific Advisory Board of the German Bread Institute has decided in favor of wood-fired bread. According to the Central Association of the German Bakery Trade, it is a traditional type of bread that is becoming increasingly popular again today. The Bread of the Year will be officially cut by the German Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, Cem Özdemir, on February 1, together with Association President Michael Wippler and Managing Director Daniel Schneider.
Every year, the Scientific Advisory Board of the German Bread Institute chooses a particularly traditional, popular and highly-nutritional, quality type of bread as the ‘Bread of the Year’. The aim is to improve the knowledge among German consumers regarding different types of bread and to strengthen the German bread culture as a recognized cultural asset of the country.
