We have a team of master bakers who have been trained in the craft of baking. These bakers show a love of the art of baking and use their skill to create our products. We produce visually attractive items that are healthy and wholesome. We are not reliant on machinery, so using the experience and adaptability of our bakers, we can change products to influence market trends and respond to client needs.
Food Safety Standards
In order to ensure our food safety procedures are up to date, we are given a weekly audit by an external food hygiene consultant. And we go beyond the basic Environmental Health Department standards by being audited and accredited yearly to the SALSA food safety standard.
Local and Fresh
While we have many nationalities working for us and we learn a huge amount from their experiences, we were founded by and we are still owned by The McVey family, who all born and bred in Edinburgh. We Love Edinburgh, and we like to think we understand it (well as much as you can!); we know it's a 'City the size of a town with the mentality of a village'. We use the freshest possible ingredients and source these from local suppliers - we buy some of our flour from a farm near Haddington.
We have an extensive range for our customers to choose from; this range includes products from many different origins e also pride ourselves in being one of the only bakeries that still use and teach the traditional Scottish artisan method. We also love to innovate, and we are always looking to improve on what we already do, so please ask if there is anything you would like.
In 2020 we made the decision to commit to a fully plant-based range. This includes our breads, pastries, traybakes, and everything we do! We truly believe this is the future. Many of our non-vegan customers do not realise that our products are plant-based - as we have not compromised on flavour or texture.
