A Real Bread Campaign investigation of UK supermarket in-store bakeries, concluding that many supermarket in-store bakery loaves are produced using artificial additives and processing aids and that many are not being baked from scratch on site but produced elsewhere to be re-baked at a later date as and when needed.
Of the six chains contacted, only one (Marks & Spencer) named any lines of Real Bread that it produced from scratch in any of their in-store bakeries.
- An honest crust?
- Labelling law
- Really hidden additives…that aren’t additives
- A load of old biscuits?
- Artisanal or artful?
- The original letter

- Which supermarket in-store bakery loaves are Real Bread?
- Scratching around
- Other information
What should happen now?
- What you can do
- What the supermarkets should do
