About Us

Kudos Meeting

Kudos Blends is the industry’s leading manufacturer and supplier of technically driven leavening agents. Our innovative baking powders enable bakery manufacturers to produce the highest quality baked goods, whilst also improving the nutritional balance of their products. Adding this to the improved consistency, process tolerance and reduced wastage our products can offer, will result in the perfect solution to all your leavening needs. Founded in 1999, our UK technical centre brings chemists and bakers together in a unique way to fully understand ingredients and their functionality. Understanding the whole bakery process and the relationship between different ingredients ensures we continually develop highly functional leavening agents that deliver so much more than just making your product rise. Our leavening agents can influence a wide range of end product characteristics such as taste, texture, colour, shape and shelf life.

With patented products in our portfolio and unrivalled service, we are ready to meet your challenges and deliver products for the future.

The Queens Award

The Queens Award For Enterprise: International Trade 2016

In the spring of 2016, Kudos Blends was chosen, along with a handful of other British businesses, to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The annual awards, which have run in various forms since 1966, are generally considered to be the pinnacle of business success within the UK.  Director Dinnie Jordan had the honour of joining other winners at a reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Her Majesty The Queen.

Going global

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise was awarded in recognition of consistently strong export growth over the previous five years. Dinnie Jordan said “I am both honoured and delighted for the company and my team to have achieved this award. Everyone has worked very hard for it. I never imagined we’d export our products when I set up Kudos Blends and it’s been a steep but enjoyable learning curve with invaluable support from the UKTI.”

Thank you from the team

This prestigious award has been made possible by the strength of the relationship with our customers, both at home and overseas. We’d like to extend our thanks for your support over the years and look forward to sharing upcoming bakery innovation and success with you in the years to come.
