Once again Real Bread bakeries rise to the top

On 6 November 2016, The Sunday Times named The 30 Best Bakeries in the UK, almost two-thirds of which have stated that they bake Real Bread.

Bakeries listed as helping to satisfy the additive-free appetite of people who ‘just don’t want us to eat rubbish any more’ included the following eleven Real Bread Campaign supporters:

  • Bostock Bakery – North Berwick
  • E5 Bakehouse – London
  • East Bristol Bakery - Bristol
  • The Handmade Bakery – Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire
  • Haxby Bakehouse – Haxby, near York
  • Leakers Bakery – Bridport, Dorset
  • Loaf - Birmingham
  • Ma Baker’s - Worcester
  • The One Mile Bakery – Cardiff
  • Stoneham Bakehouse – Hove, East Sussex
  • Sugardough – Hove, East Sussex

A further seven of the bakeries have either listed their loaves on the Campaign’s Real Bread Finder map or supported the Campaign’s work in the past.

The Sunday Times article not only recognised the bakers themselves but also the rise in demand for loaves crafted purely from all natural ingredients, rather than fabricated ‘with the help of processing aids, preservatives and treatment agents — murky terms for stuff that ideally shouldn’t be there’.

Of course, here at the Real Bread Campaign we’re more than aware of the great work Real Bread bakers are doing, so it’s always nice to know that their excellence is being fully appreciated by others. A sincere congratulations to all that received a mention, not only our supporters, but the others out there in the wider movement of bakers and shoppers dismissing all that is beige and bland.
