On 24 February 2024, the last Saturday of the Real Bread Campaign's 15th annual Real Bread Week, hundreds of Real Bread bakers and buyers bowled up to The Bowhouse in Fife for the second Scottish Festival of Real Bread.

Bread winners

One highlight of the day was presentation of awards in the 7th Scottish Bread Championship.

The Supreme Champion was Spelt Sourdough from Station House Bakery in Haddington. Tortano from Wild Hearth Bakery in Comrie was named the Reserve Champion.

Other big winners were Mhor Bread (seven gold awards), Sunrise Bakery (four gold awards) and Company Bakery (three gold awards).
The full list of gold, silver and bronze award winning Read Bread can be found on Edinburgh Bakers Trust website.

Co-founded in 2017 by Scottish Food Guide and Andrew Whitley of Scotland The Bread, The Scottish Bread Championship is the only national award in the UK (and perhaps the world) to require that all entries at least meet the Real Bread Campaign’s basic definition of Real Bread
