about us

we serve our community with really good bread and create fulfilling jobs for refugees. We're passionate about building a business that provides a sense of dignity, purpose and belonging for its bakers.

Our bread

We use a homegrown sourdough starter to make slow-risen loaves with a signature tang. We approach bread with a spirit of excitement and experimentation - one of the results of which is our deeply flavoured rye and hazelnut loaf which uses a dash of decaf coffee.

Our bakers

We have an incredible, talented bunch of bakers. We provide flexible, supportive employment and work with local organisations to find people interested in our training courses. At the end of each course, we employ as many training graduates as possible, and coach and mentor the others to find opportunities to use their skills elsewhere.
