Brakes releases new Artisan Sourdough Bread Range

22nd Mar 2023 - 10:14
Foodservice wholesaler Brakes has launched a new range of Artisan Sourdough Breads under its La Boulangerie brand.

The breads are made using traditional methods, with the majority of each loaf being hand produced, including folding, moulding and bulking. No commercial yeast is used and the bread has a long fermentation, with the loaves rising naturally, giving the typical sour flavour and open-textured crumb.

Vanessa Baker, senior category manager of bakery at Brakes, said: “We wanted to create a range of products that any chef would be proud to serve. Working with Nicholas and Harris, we believe we’ve created a range of really good breads that use traditional methods, but are also commercially viable.”

The full range of new products which are all made under the La Boulangerie brand includes:

  • Artisan Plain Sourdough Loaf
  • Artisan Seeded Loaf
  • Artisan Cheese and Onion Sourdough Loaf
  • Artisan Sundried Tomato & Herb Sourdough Loaf
  • Artisan Beetroot & Spelt Sourdough Loaf
  • Artisan Pre Sliced Sourdough Half Boule

Paul Bown, process and development manager at Nicholas & Harris, added: “These products are among the first that will be nationally available for foodservice. We have a team of more than 30 craft bakers, so we understand the care and attention that needs to go into each and every loaf we create. We believe that we’ve created a really exciting range that will be a wonderful addition to any menu.”
