With our foundations in France, it’s only natural that Lesaffre has a proven portfolio of baking solutions for pastries such as viennoiserie, croissants and laminated specialty pastries. The term Viennoiseries means “from Vienna”, the capital of Austria which is the alleged birth place of the croissant. The famous “Boulangerie Viennoise” was founded there in the 19th century, with its success emulated widely.

Eaten alone or with a filling today, croissants come in a variety of shapes and sizes across the globe today and Viennese pastries continue to delight consumers and bakers. Creating that perfect combination of flaky and soft viennoiseries requires unique formulations.

Whether you are after solutions to reduce tearing, increase volume and lamination or provide resilience without losing softness, our experts can guide you to the best solution for your processes and needs.
