About a year ago, New York WaterMaker introduced what it describes as the world’s first water source replication/customization system. Now the company is making an entry into the supermarket industry with the installation of a New York WaterMaker in Whole Foods Market’s new state-of-the-art test kitchen in Rockville, Maryland.
Water is a main ingredient in dough and historically has been one that bakers cannot control or keep consistent across geographic regions and locations. The New York WaterMaker changes that, the company says.
New York WaterMaker President and CEO Paul Errigo said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled that Whole Foods Market, a company who puts such a high priority on innovation and quality, sees the value in New York WaterMaker. The NYWM system filters and disinfects water to a 0 percent microbial count and is 100 percent chemical free, which we know is important to them. We are honored to help Whole Foods Market deliver superior products consistently in all their locations and look forward to working with their team.”
“We’re looking forward to continuing innovation and experimentation to make the best baked goods possible and testing the system,” said Kristen Robinson, Whole Foods Market culinary senior team leader for the Mid-Atlantic region.
Since its unveiling at 2018 Pizza Expo, the New York WaterMaker has been installed in pizza, bagel and bakeries in 21 cities in the U.S., as well as in the artisan coffee market.
