Hey Guys -
Been doing some digging online and have noticed some chatter in regards to PZ-44 applications, new owners, specs, etc. Well - lucky to have stumbled here as I handle the marketing and communications for Agropur Ingredients, the new owners of the PZ-44 Dough Conditioner. We are also brand new sponsors to the World Pizza Champions! As an initial introduction, I’d like to introduce our company, our brands and then of course myself and my colleague, Phil Blanchard, our Bakery Division Sales Manager. I am putting together a survey to get to know both the WPC members and others in the industry to get to know you and what your set-up is like, what your experience with PZ-44 has been, what kind of support we can provide to you, etc. If you would be willing to take a quick 10 minute survey, send me a message or email me at [email protected]
! Mostly, just here to hear what you guys have got to say and get to know what you're looking for from us as a supplier and provide any info or samples I can to you.

PZ-44 is a powdered dough conditioner that saves you significant time and money, without sacrificing flavor, quality or consistency. It makes your dough easier to work and won’t affect the original taste of your formula.
That means you spend less time handling, stretching and rolling.
Scale PZ-44 into the mixer with your flour and other dry ingredients to:
• Reduce shrink back
• Deliver a richer, golden crust color
• Results in a more pliable dough
• Eliminate tearing
• Made from carefully blended natural ingredients like sweet dairy whey and a protein component called L-cysteine, PZ-44 conditions your dough naturally.
My name is Corrie, I handle the marketing & communications at Agropur Ingredients. This is inclusive of all our ingredients but I have a special place for the bakery industry and being able to interact with customers/vendors on a personal level. If ever in doubt shoot me a message and I can either provide you an answer or connect you to the correct person for follow-up. We're in the backend of rebranding our current website to agropuringredients.com - it should be up in the next couple months for you all to explore!
Phil Blanchard, our bakery division sales manager will also be a great resource for you all.
