How YOU can get involved, particularly if you run a Real Bread business.
#SourdoughSeptember is just weeks away! In its 8th year, the Real Bread Campaign’s annual, international celebration of the oldest way of leavening a loaf kneads YOU to help more people globally discover that a sourdough starter is the gateway to every type of bread on the planet.
This year we've welcomed Lockdown Loafers around the world starting (or resuming) love affairs with sourdough bread, many baking or buying it for the first time. Sourdough September will build on this surge of enthusiasm, particularly encouraging people who’ve only tried one type of bread made using a sourdough starter to buy or bake more.
Ideas for events/activities business owners can organise include:
The earlier you add your event, the better your chance of us giving it a mention on our press release and other media work…
Then how about something else instead? We've created the hook and do promotional work at an international level. What you hang on it (in line with the initiative’s aims) to use the opportunity of free publicity and drive custom for your Real Bread business is up to you.
If face-to-face events / activities aren't permitted where you are (or aren't right for you this year) maybe you could run something (eg a baking class or social event) online instead?
Last year's event saw more than 5600 social media posts from at least 57 countries. With all the extra interest this year, we're expecting to see our hashtags on many more.
We receive no sponsorship or funding for Sourdough September, so adding an optional suggested doughnation to the Real Bread Campaign onto customers’ bills would be amazing, please! If you choose to do this, you could do so across the board, for a particular product/class, or just pots of starter you dish out. Equally we welcome your own doughnation.
