Baker Of The Year 2018 Finalists Announced

This year saw us once again sponsor the Baking Industry Award’s ‘Baker of the year’ category, the most prestigious awards in the British baking Industry.

It’s our 5th year judging and sponsoring the award and it has to be said probably the hardest year to date yet. We’ve seen bakers from across the sector from various types and size bakeries and manufacturing plants and the standard has been higher than we’ve known. The passion these bakers have for their craft and the industry is admirable, and some of the products they turn out have been fantastic.

There were so many worthy entrants this year and it was a tough decision to narrow it down, as always we made a short list and visited bakers at their premises to find out more. We have tasted, talked and toured the country and we are really excited to have got the list of truly great bakers down to 3 fantastic finalists.

We are very excited to announce our 3 final bakers for this year’s Baker of the Year are:

Aidan Monks – Lovingly Artisan 

Aidan Chapman – Flint Owl Bakery 

Paul Rhodes – Paul Rhodes Bakery 

We wish the three the best of luck and we are excited to be announcing the winner during the award’s ceremony on September 5th. A huge thank you to all those that entered as there are were many great contenders this year.
