On 19th October, GCSE Business Studies students visited Ditty’s Bakery, Castledawson, in order to gain some essential information for their Controlled Assessment.  The visit started off with a question and answer session with Mr. Robert Ditty.  The pupils learnt about the origins of the company, how it has grown and recent innovations including producing chocolate (which was delicious!).

Pupils then had a very interesting tour of their bakery from the storage of the raw materials through to the finished product being packaged.  The visit proved invaluable to the students as they were able to gather much needed information such as how technology has impacted on the business and the importance of training in the Bakery.  Many thanks to Mr. Robert Ditty and his staff who gave up time from their busy schedule to provide such an interesting visit.
