We are proud members of the Real Bread Campaign.

The Real Bread Campaign is an initiative to help people make a better informed choice about what they feed their families and help local bakeries make a clear distinction between their Real Breads and other products on the market.

It aims to:

  • Share the pleasure and benefits of locally-baked ‘Real Bread’ – that means bread made without artificial additives and processing aids.
  • Raise awareness of the issues with additives used in industrial/supermarket loaves
  • Call for stricter legal requirements on retailers to declare in plain English exactly what has gone into the production of every loaf, including legal definitions for terms like ‘freshly baked/fresh’, ‘artisan’ and ‘sourdough’.
  • Champion research into health and nutritional issues (digestibility, intolerance, allergy, GI, etc.) to establish factors that have a beneficial effect and lead to even more people being able to enjoy Real Bread.

The campaign was co-founded by Andrew Whitley, author of the book ‘Bread Matters‘, which we highly recommend.  You might like to watch Andrew talking at the ‘Do Lectures’ in Ceredigion.
