Real Bread Week Rises Again
The 22nd February through to the 1st March 2020 signifies a time to celebrate all things artisan and the creation of additive-free loaves of real bread.The aim of the week is simple, to encourage people to buy bread from local independent bakeries (look out for those with the loaf mark). Alternatively, the week also encourages consumers to make their own bread based foods and understand what's in the food they eat.
