Sub Rolls

Bread Rolls still favourite

In recent years the UK has seen a growth of upmarket coffee houses and bistros offering a range of different snacks such as tortilla wraps, thins and ciabatta. This led to a slight decline in the demand for old favourites like the bread roll, but recent figures have shown a significant increase in the sale of rolls as consumer demand has risen by 20% in the last year.

The roll was once the staple of lunchboxes across the country. For many years it was outsold only by sliced bread and successfully held its own against the introduction of bagels, croissants and pitta bread. The roll lost momentum due to coffee shops and other eateries offering speciality bread and a range of exotic fillings. However, UK supermarkets have reported sales of almost 8 million more individual rolls in the past 12 months.

Surveys reveal that many people prefer rolls as they offer great value for money and are very filling. We are leading suppliers of sliced bread products, individual and multiple packs of rolls and other sweet and savoury baked goods and we are trusted to deliver the finest quality products, giving you the steady supply of rolls your customers demand. We can supply you with individual rolls, large packs of buns, burgers and barms. Our bread rolls and buns come in all shapes and sizes and we also offer plain and seeded options.

Our deliveries are structured to suit the individual needs of our customers and we aim to offer convenient solutions. We can deliver once or twice a week or on a daily basis if required. We can fill any order regardless of size and we take every step to deliver your orders at the times that suit your business schedules.

Are you wasting bread unnecessarily?

Baked goods are amongst the most widely wasted in the UK and bread at the very top of the list. There are several possible reasons for this, including the easy availability of mass produced loaves and the fact that people tend to stick very closely to best before dates. One problem is people don’t want to run out of bread so they always tend to buy more rather than thinking closely about how much they will actually use. This can easily end up with a large amount being wasted.

Storing bread in the right conditions is important if you want to maximise its freshness. Many people put it in the fridge but this will actually cause it to go stale much faster. Instead you should leave it in a cool, dry place, preferably in a bread bin or a cloth bag.

The best before date is designed as a guide and does not mean that bread will instantly be unusable when the date on the label arrives. In fact, loaves can last a few days beyond this and you can freshen them up by moistening the crust with a little water and putting it in the oven to gently reheat for a few minutes. With careful storage a fresh packaged loaf could last for up to six days.

As long as the product is not mouldy you can still use it. In fact there are even a few uses for stale bread that hasn’t developed mould. This is the best for making breadcrumbs because it will hold together better. You could also use it for bread pudding.

Bread can also be frozen for later use and will last for up to six months in the freezer. It is better to freeze individual slices rather than the whole loaf so you can defrost pieces as and when you need them. This will dramatically cut the amount of wastage.

We specialise in bread and bakery supply throughout the North West, offering a fantastic range of bakery products for shops. We know how important is it to offer a reliable service to these clients so they can pass on the best goods to their customers. We aim to achieve just that by keeping a close eye on all of our services and investing in the supply chain.

Bread is a vital staple in our diet

Bread has been a staple of diets from cultures all around the world for millennia. It is made using various cereals and other ingredients and many varieties bear the name of the cereal used in the flour, whether it is wheat, rye or corn. There are almost as many different bread making techniques as there are varieties, showing just how much effort people have put into developing and discovering products.

The reason bread became so essential is that it is rich in carbohydrates and contains several other important vitamins and minerals. It was also cheap to produce, making it a cost effective way to help people get many of the nutrients they needed in their diet. All of these qualities made it into a staple food and are why the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends people consume it every day.

The importance of bread has made producing and supplying it into a huge industry. The short shelf life of products means speed is important in all stages of the manufacturing and supply process if consumers are to get the fresh produce they demand. Any problems could cause delays and leave people without a vital staple of their diet. With such a high level of competition, it could also cause businesses to lose customers as they can easily purchase a different brand. This means producers generally invest a huge amount in their production and supply chains.

The key to bakery supply is to keep lead times to a minimum. Producers should ensure they have all of the materials they need to make products as and when they need to. Efficient machinery is also wise because it will help with production and meeting tough schedules. Finally deliveries should be regular and capable of providing a reliable supply to shops.

We understand the importance of efficiency when it comes to bakery supply in Yorkshire and across the North West. We can meet the needs of all kinds of clients and ensure they have fresh produce to sell to their clients whenever they open their doors. We deliver throughout the region and have extensive experience working with convenience stores.

Additionally our products are high quality so your customers will be happy to make them part of their diet.
