The Campaign was officially launched on 26 November 2008 but the concept had been slowly fermenting for some time before that...

The Food Magazine - 29 November
Making the slice right: A new, Real Bread Campaign is being started by Andrew Whitley of Bread Matters and Sustain

The Food Programme (BBC Radio 4) - 19 August
Perfect bread "The high philosopher of baking, Andrew Whitley, ready to lauch a new Real Bread Campaign."


Earlier references to campaigning for better bread were about the Real Bread Campaign's antecedants - a necessarily long line, sadly. They included the Campaign for Real Bread (AKA CAMREB), launched and run by the Vegetarian Society in 1976 as part of its Green Plan, written by Dr. Alan Long. He left the society in 1991, forming VEGA (Vegetarian and Green Agriculture) in 1992.

CAMREB inspired the Campaign for Real Bread run throughout 1980 by The Sunday Times magazine in its Lifespan section. This led to the publication of The Sunday Times Book of Real Bread (written by Lifespan editor Michael Bateman and his wife Heather Maisner) in 1982. Some of the 1980 articles are reproduced in Bateman's book A Delicious Way to Earn a Living.

It is unclear when CAMREB ended. There are few references to bread in VEGA's news archive between 2003 and 2009, which are generally reports about product recalls of contaminated factory loaves. In his April 2006 obituary to Bateman, Long referred to his campaign in the past tense, calling it a predecessor to VEGA and asking if it had acheived its purpose. In 2009 (soon after the Real Bread Campaign's official launch), however, Long had resumed writing about CAMREB in the present tense. VEGA appears to have become inactive in 2014 or 2015.
