- CBP, General Manager
Marc and Berlinda Hiel are opening a Bakery-Pastry Shop in Zwijndrecht (Belgium) Already during that period, Marc was doing research to improve the maintenance and cleaning of the baking molds in order to obtain a healthier end product.
Marc and his brother Clem, working as an engineer at NASA, are starting research into the possibility of developing new plastics that could be used in a temperature range of -40 ° C to + 250 ° C, without distortion and with better baking results.
After frequent testing, they succeed in fine-tuning a formulation that meets all strict requirements.
Together with Mac Pucket, a global expert in the field of plastics, the Hiel brothers set up "Clean Baking Products". The intention is to start the production and sale of highly innovative bakeware made from plastic.
CBP obtains the European certificate for food-safe material.
CBP obtains the certificate from the Food and Drug Administration.
CBP wins the prize for the most innovative and revolutionary product at the IBA trade fair in Düsseldorf (Germany) This recognition is greatly appreciated by both the professional world and artisanal and home bakers.
Start exporting from Belgium to the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden.
Establishment of a demo and research shop in Zwijndrecht.
Deliveries outside the EU: Chile, Argentina and USA. Further expansion of the range.
Designing and implementing "Tailor made" solutions for professional users.
