When Alan Davis finished a 20-year stint working at BT as an engineer in 1995, there was only one thing he wanted to do: make really good traditional bread. So he teamed up with his wife Jane to form The Authentic Bread Company. They transformed their garage in Gloucestershire into a fully functioning bakery, and after just a few months of trading, they won their first Soil Association Organic Food Award for their olive bread. The whole family is involved too – Alan’s children Emily and Alex both joined the family business after graduating – and they are all obsessed with finding the best quality organic ingredients available. They use traditional long fermentation and handmade methods of production, which although might take longer, produce really delicious bread with great texture and a superior taste. To date, the Authentic Bread Company has won over 15 awards, including six Soil Association Awards.

Lack of improvers and preservatives mean this doesn’t have the shelf life of supermarket sliced bread. So eat soon after you receive it, however it does freeze well so pop in if you don’t think you will get through it in a few days. Allow the bread to breathe by storing in a cool and dry place, in cloth or paper bags, or in wood or clay bins. Avoid keeping it in the fridge as it actually ages faster.
We guarantee that your bakery order will have a minimum of 3 days before its expiry date, including the day you have it delivered.
