The Next Generation
We have been sampling Roberts Bakery bloomer bread this week, in their brand new bold paper bags, and we are loving what we have tried. We love the new design which we think will appeal to the younger generation. The paper bag packaging and the quirky font style are also a big hit with us.
The suggested selling price retail is £1.19. They are 600g each . The 4 Bloomers in their range are as follows.
The Heroic wholemeal is soft fresh and tastes just like a good wholemeal should do.
Exciting times ahead in the re-branding of Roberts Bakery. Something different in the bakery category that should make their range stand out on shelf. Roberts Bakery is a business that is in a crowded market place and really does have to stand out from the rest of the bakery section as it is really competitive. The new rolls look different and so are the 6oog Bloomers.
Lidl has overtaken Waitrose to become the seventh largest retailer in the UK as the discounters continue grow at more than four times the rate of the Big 4
Fantastic effort by them, well done
Looking for a wholesale bakery supplier? We introduce our brand of bread, called Hethertons-original a bread brand that is not sold in any supermarkets. This bread cannot be price compared and therefore not subject to having to match the supermarkets and Discounters extremely low pricing. It is a quality loaf made with the best ingredients. We all want things as cheap as possible, but at what price to our local businesses? If we stop shopping there we will all be sorry, just look at the high streets now! We give to many charitable organisations by way of products for fund raising. We believe in shopping local to keep our community businesses alive.
I live in a small village and use our local shops all the time. I am lucky as they are all well supported and keep the little village busy. Last week we bought from our butchers quality produce from local farmers. Eggs, meat, bacon and other items in there and spent £35. This was approx a couple of pounds dearer than Tesco. The products were better, tasted fresher and keeps our butcher in business, who then employs local people and they in turn support their families and re-invest in the village.
[Breadmaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells… there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of
meditation in a music-throbbing chapel. that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
