Meet Pedro Calvo, our Bakery Master Trainer in Brazil

In the second half of 2021, the best professionals in the Bakery, Pastry, and Confectionery industries from Brazil gathered in Sao Paulo for a reunion. The goal of this meeting was to exchange knowledge about the Brazilian market, deep dive into Richemont methodology, and choose the future master trainers to integrate into our team of GSL trainers. After careful consideration, Pedro Calvo was chosen to be the Master Trainer for the Bakery courses in partnership with Richemont.

Meet Pedro Calvo, our Bakery Master Trainer in Brazil

Pedro has an impressive career path as a professional baker and entrepreneur. He holds a degree in Gastronomy and Hotel Administration, as well as a postgraduate degree in Business Management in Food Services.

He has participated in several international trainings and is now a partner at Panetteria Attimino, delivering high-quality bread to multiple other businesses. 

In January 2023, Pedro came to Switzerland to become a certified Master Trainer. After an intense week of practice and evaluation, he received his Bakery Master Trainer certification, cementing his position as one of the industry's top professionals. 

At Richemont in Lucerne

He is now responsible for evaluating and providing feedback to the students enrolled in our Swiss Bakery Professional course in Brazil. Once the students finish the online portion of the training and are ready for the on-campus sessions, he will be the Master Trainer conducting the classes. Pedro will also support us in promoting the Bakery, Pastry, and Confectionery trainings on his social and professional networks.   

We talked to Pedro to learn more about his experience at Richemont, becoming a Master Trainer. 

What was your biggest learning or challenge during the Richemont Train the Trainer course?

During the training, I was challenged to prove my experience as a professional baker and to show to the Richemont’s team that I am capable of passing on their methodology and standards to the Brazilian students. 

What was the most important thing you learned during the training?

In Switzerland, we could practice together all the bakery products I had the chance to make during the online courses. For me, the main point was to learn about Richemont’s standards and how I can bring their methodology during the practical classes to the students in Brazil. 

What do you like most about your profession?

In the bakery field, we always have the ability to learn more. Bakery is not just about recipes, but it is also about theory!
