Far East Organization is excited to announce the launch of its Baker X baking studio and café on level 4 of the buzzing Orchard Central mall in Orchard Road. 

With the aim of supporting bakers who wish to explore scaling up into full-fledged outlet, Far East Organization seeks to provide a business opportunity through Baker X – a fully fitted baking studio and cafĂ©.

With this unique concept, Far East Organization strives to give budding home-baking entrepreneurs a chance to run their operations at a physical outlet at no costs and to scale their production. Customers will also be able to gain access to their favourite home-based bakers, interact with them and try their bakes, including their new items, first-hand in a café setting.

Through the launch of Baker X, Far East Organization also hopes to encourage the entry of new brands to Orchard Central mall by providing customers with more choices, promoting greater diversity and enhance the retail ecosystem in Singapore.

Featuring an industrial chic interior design with table and counter seating for up to 10 guests, the baking studio and cafĂ© at Orchard Central is fully fitted with appliances from brands such as leading Swiss household name, V-ZUG. Baker X will be operated by the baker-in-residence, complemented by Foreword Coffee Roasters – a social enterprise that aims to provide an inclusive work environment for neurodiverse individuals.
