Company: Bimbo Bakeries USA
Location: Greenwich, CT
Ms. Bratisax entered the analytical food testing field due to her passion for food. She has been involved in the industry for more than three decades and currently operates her own company, Bimbo Bakeries USA. Ms. Bratisax’s manufacturing company offers clients a wide range of baked products, including bread, English muffins, cakes, cookies, doughnuts and Danish pies.
Her company’s history in the United States began in 1994, when Grupo Bimbo began exporting and distributing its leading Mexican products into California and Texas. Since then, a diverse number of bread and tortilla bakeries have been acquired. Today, this entire legacy has become Bimbo Bakeries USA. Among the most important acquisitions that have positioned Bimbo Bakeries USA as a premier baker in the U.S. is the purchase of Mrs. Baird’s Bakeries, the leading independent baker in Texas, and the purchase of the Western Division of George Weston Bakeries.
Throughout her career, Ms. Bratisax has served as a manager of analytical services for more than 25 years. She has come to excel in analytical testing and ingredient functionality, and spends her days outsourcing new ingredients and finished products for Bimbo Bakeries USA, writing ingredient specifications, managing front-end nutritional workups for regulatory group, attending annual Miller’s meeting, and training personnel on testing procedures. Ms. Bratisax stays abreast of changes in her field through her affiliation with the Institute of Food Technologists and The Association of Official Analytical Chemists (now AOAC International). She attributes her success to her dedication and strong sense of determination.
