KANSAS CITY — The American Society of Baking has moved its headquarters to Kansas City from Swedesboro, N.J., its home for the past three and a half years. Prior to Swedesboro, the A.S.B. was headquartered in Petaluma, Calif.

“Being in the center of the country and the baking industry will facilitate greater interaction with our members,” said Kent Van Amburg, executive director of the A.S.B. “A.S.B. will also be able to strengthen our working relationship with our strategic partners — BEMA, K.S.U. and AIB.”

Founded in 1924, the A.S.B. is a professional organization comprising commercial baking professionals, food technologists, engineering, equipment and ingredient experts dedicated to advancing baking and baking science technology.

The association’s new address is: 7809 N Chestnut Ave., Kansas City, Mo., 64119. Its phone numbers, email addresses and staff remain unchanged.
