Real Bread at events

Far too much thoughtfully and lovingly produced delicious food is served up in pappy baps, buns, baguettes and white slices mass-produced at the other end of a motorway somewhere by who knows, using who knows what - it's like presenting the Mona Lisa in a frame from a pound shop.

We urge producers, stallholders and other caterers to serve their fantastic food in Real Bread (i.e. addtive-free) from a local, independent bakery.

Real Bread at your event

Whether it’s a stand-alone event or part of something wider, a Real Bread activity is a great way to bring people together. After all, the word companion comes from cum panis - Latin for ‘with bread’.
