Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has congratulated local baker Robert Ditty after he was crowned Baker of the Year at the 2011 Baking Industry Awards.
The awards recognise achievement and professionalism across the baking industry and it is the first time the Baker of the Year award has been won by a Northern Ireland baker.
Robert Ditty, owner of Ditty's Home Bakery, Castledawson, learned the skills of the trade from his father and Robert took over the business in the 1980s.
