Baker & Baker is a Europe-wide manufacturer of bakery products, with 12 manufacturing sites in seven countries, including four in the UK, where the company is based. Manufactures a range of licensed, customer-specific private label bakery products for the retail, foodservice and wholesale channels.

Last year, the company became an independent manufacturer of bakery products after the sale of its ingredients division (CSM Ingredients). It officially launched as Baker & Baker in April 2021.

Baker & Baker has implemented a number of sustainability initiatives over the past year to reduce carbon emissions and was a founding signatory to WRAP’s water reduction roadmap.

Growth and expansion have been a key focus over the last year with the company investing significantly in increasing its presence in new markets in Europe and beyond. This includes the opening of a new office in Poland and entry into new territories such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
