Department of Culinary Arts, the Welcomgroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration, MAHE continually strives to teach students about sustainable food practices.
One such initiative is the Ministry of Bakery (MOB), a Student-Run Bakeshop that started in 2019, producing high-quality Cakes, Pastries, Viennoiserie, Cookies, and Savories.
A menu is developed based on the basic sweet and savory baked goods, During the preparation, the students must ensure ethical use of ingredients, minimizing wastage and loss. They also take multiple steps to ensure that these products are procured and prepared under MAHE sustainability guidelines, the resulting products are put on display in the Department of Culinary Arts basement, where there are commercial display counters set up, which give a clean and professional look. The items are marketed and sold to the students and people of Manipal at a subsidized rate.
This Bakeshop provides a unique insight into sustainable planning, preparing, and pricing baked goods, along with developing marketing strategies to sell these products, which is beneficial to the learning outcome of the students as they can apply what they learn theoretically and see the results after which they are capable of making decisions and thinking like an entrepreneur.
The MOB prides itself as one of the finest baked shops in Manipal and continues to provide high-quality sustainable products at reasonable prices.
