Frequently Asked Questions
Is everything you sell frozen?
Yes. We do this to remove the need for the use of artificial preservatives and ensure that we keep food waste to an absolute minimum.
Why buy frozen?
There are 2 key benefits of freezing. One is that it removes the need for artificial preservatives and the second is that it almost completely eliminates food waste. We also freeze all of our breads straight from the oven meaning that most of our products are fully frozen within 90 minutes. This locks in flavour and freshness so once thawed they taste so fresh that many people often question whether they were frozen at all!
What is Red Tractor?
Red Tractor is an accreditation scheme and label applied to products that support British farmers who adhere to the high standard that the Red Tractor scheme lays out. We only use 100% British wheat flour and are regularly audited by Red Tractor to ensure that we comply with their policies.
Do you only sell fully baked bread?
No. Our business actually started out supplying frozen doughs to customers across the UK. Recently this has rocketed in popularity again and has become a much bigger part of our business.
Do you sell Gluten Free?
No. To produce Gluten Free breads we’d need to build a brand new bakery and the skills required are very different. It’s a bit like asking a butcher if he sells veg!
Do you sell vegan products?
Very soon. Many of our breads are technically already suitable for vegans but we like to do things properly and have all of the accreditation in place. We are therefore working with The Vegan Society to approve the majority of our range by January 2019.
Are you a nut free bakery?
Very soon. As of January 2019 we aim to be nut free in both of our bakeries.
I’m a member of the public, where can I buy your breads?
We have our own retail brand called The Baker’s Bicycle, which is available in many farm shops and delis across the UK. Have a look on the Baker’s Bicycle website and you can find your nearest stockist www.bakersbicycle.co.uk
Do you sell your breads in any supermarkets?
No. We’re foodies and passionate about bread. Unfortunately most of the supermarkets don’t tend to share our passion and instead focus their attention on price rather than quality.
