Celebrations for another Craft Bakers’ Week begin

30 September, 2014

While bread in its simplest form, is not too tricky to make, baking the perfect loaf can be a real labour of love that bakers will gladly spend hours over. To celebrate the art and skill of bread making, appreciating the long hours that our local bakers spend tirelessly kneading and proving dough, BAKO are proud to be supporting Craft Bakers’ Week for another year.



Bakers spend years learning and perfecting their art, gaining skills to create everything from the perfect pastry to cakes and bread. Craft Bakers’ Week is organised on behalf of all the bakers across the UK that are proud of their craft, and form a key part of the British high street.

Bakers across the country will be coming together this week to tempt people into their bakeries in aid of the week, with a host of activities planned from competitions to bakery tours, tastings and product launches. If the above wasn’t tempting enough, Tom and Henry Herbert, famously known as the ‘Baker Brothers’, who run Hobbs House Bakery in the Cotswolds are also back to support the week for another year. The brothers plan to encourage everyone in the community to pay a visit to their local bakery, asking them to ‘Love Your Baker’.


Bakeries throughout the UK this week are also aiming to raise awareness and funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, a charity that grants wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. This week bakeries are encouraged to “Bake-A-Wish” with special buns, biscuits and cakes on offer and each sale made will contribute a 10p donation to the charity.


To celebrate the start of Craft Bakers’ Week today, why not plan a visit to your local baker? For a list of participating bakers in your area, you can click here. Or we’d love to hear from those bakers in our Twitter community about how you are celebrating Craft Bakers’ Week.
