The growing popularity of artisan bread, cakes and pastries across the UK is creating an ever-increasing demand for locally produced, real bread and baked goods. Providing high quality produce is only one element of a successful business and this course is packed with practical information and expert guidance on how to meet local demand through the creation of a micro-bakery.
Micro-bakeries make bread, cakes and pastries for direct retail, wholesale or food markets. Offering low food miles, fresh products and the opportunity for people to 'shop local', these businesses are thriving in many communities.
