Part of the charity Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, the Real Bread Campaign is fighting for better bread in Britain. The Campaign’s basic definition of Real Bread is that made without artificial additives. From this simple and universally accessible starting point, the Campaign seeks, finds and shares ways to make bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.
Highlights of Campaign successes to date:
Since we launched our membership scheme in September 2009, more than 1000 people have joined the Real Bread Campaign, either on behalf of bakeries and other enterprises or as individuals
We sold all 1000 copies of Knead to Know, our book on how to start a Real Bread bakery, in just one year and we continue to receive donations for the PDF download version every week.
Of 100 Knead to Know readers we asked in March 2012, 22 people had stared their Real Bread business since reading the book and a further 39 were planning to do so.
In spring 2012, we sent 280 packets of organic wheat seeds to more than 200 schools, along with our Bake Your Lawn guide on how to grow it, mill it, bake it, eat it.
Thanks to our Lessons in Loaf scheme, more than 4000 children at more than 85 schools have learned how to bake Real Bread at school.
The Campaign has inspired Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to put locally-baked organic Real Bread On The Menu at 26 schools and nurseries in the borough.
More than 90 bakeries have signed up to use The Real Bread Loaf Mark to give their customers an at-a-glance assurance that their loaves are made without artificial additives.
More than 460 bakeries have added their loaves to our Real Bread Finder map.
In July 2010, the Advertising Standards Authority upheld the Campaign’s complaint that an ad for Tesco in-store bakeries was misleading.
