73 Making Bread for Good Silko's New Line Combines Space Savings and Efficiency Even the smallest kitchens can work more efficiently with Silko's Essence Dynamic range of drawer systems. It offers both large and small integrated drawers, which operators can equip with specific accessories. Having prep ingredients close at hand saves steps for the kitchen crew and helps them perform their jobs more efficiently and comfortably. The drawers replace shelves under equip- ment and pull out complete- ly for easy access. Internal partitions are also available. Pain et Partage is a social en- terprise founded in Marseille, France, in 2013. Its mission is to develop a network of socially responsible, organic bakeries that will create local jobs while providing bread for public-sector establishments. This nonprofit enterprise is staffed by people who have had difficulty finding jobs in the traditional job market. "We wanted to set up an enterprise which focused on organic food, and which was based on solidar- ity and the support of local communities," says Benjamin Borel, one of Pain et Partage's founding partners. Neither Borel nor his co-founding partner Samuel Mougin had any bakery experience, so they set up a partnership with Pavail- ler to provide them with bakery equipment. Besides providing ovens, mechanical kneaders, a fermentation chamber and Fermentolevain dough-producing machines, Pavailler has given invaluable technical advice and support as Pain et Partage expands. "It's very interesting work- ing with Pain et Partage, particularly as they are not from a bakery background," says Pavailler sales manager Tristan Ragain. "We have supported their project from the begin- ning and are pleased to have been able to offer them a lot of advice." Borel agrees, adding that "we really do work in part- nership with Pavailler. They have helped us enormously." Pain et Partage has been extremely successful so far, expanding beyond its initial Marseille operation to Montpellier, Lyon and Calais. Projects are also planned for Paris, Toulouse and Bordeaux. Benjamin Borel of Pain et Partage.
