The coach

 Mai Duc Huy 

Mai Duc HUY Mai Duc Huy studied and worked in Belgium for nearly 7 years. When he came back to his country of origin, Vietnam, he started working for Safviet, a Lesaffre company. Huy thinks that making breads and become a baker are two different things. To make breads is easy but to become a good and well known baker is more difficult. You have to innovate, create and be willing to learn new techniques. Joining the Louis Lesaffre Cup is an opportunity and a chance for the three candidates and the Young Bakery Hopeful to get more experience and to meet people that are expert in the bakery field. It is an exceptional experience !



The Young Bakery Hopeful

Nguyen Thi NHON

Nguyen Thi Nhon is an orphaned child. Having lived through a difficult childhood, Nhon got the chance to enter at LP4Y (Life Project for Youth), which mission is to assist in the social and professional integration of Young Adults aged 17 to 24 living in extreme poverty. There, Nhon started to learn bakery. Lp4y and Saf Viet work together to help youngs to find a job in the field of bakery and even give them a chance to open their own bakery. Nhon’s dreams would be to open her own bakery and help the others disadvantaged young girls. The Louis Lesaffre Cup is a big chance for her to learn from the other bakers and be more confident with herself.
