PMCA Panning Course rates an A-Plus
“The hands-on experience and learning from other class members was invaluable.”
“Really great course and great, enthusiastic, engaged teachers.”
These are just a few of the comments from students who participated in PMCA’s panned confections course, Nov. 27-Dec. 1. More than 25 students from across the country gathered for the course at The Warrell Corporation, Camp Hill, PA, to learn about various panning technologies from a faculty of confectionery industry veterans.
Lectures and hands-on experience taught students panning basics, including soft, hard and chocolate panning, panning room design and layout, and finishing and polishing.
The extensive facilities of The Warrell Corporation also gave students a first-hand opportunity to learn about the hot panning process.
The faculty leading the course were Michelle Frame, Victus Ars; Scott Bergeron, Mantrose-Haeuser; Pam Gesford, The Hershey Company; Michael Gordon, Georgia Nut Company; Anthony Habib, Habib Global Consulting; Peter Jamieson, Atlas Point Technical Services; and Walter Vink, Vink Associates, Inc.
