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 wonderful gluten-free loaf made fluffy with ground psyllium husk. 

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 as possible and help others find opportunities to use their skills elsewhere.

Variety plan - new!

For those who want to try all our products before deciding or who just like to mix things up, we’re offering a rotation of different breads at each delivery. This includes all our standard loaves, and will also mean you'll be the first to try any products we're trialling, like bagels or focaccia. Tell us if there's anything you don't eat and we'll be sure not to include it in your deliveries!
