Wholesaler Brakes launches Wildfarmed bread range

20th May 2024 - 04:00
Brakes has launched a new range of products made using Wildfarmed flour, supporting a growing interest in natural, regenerative agriculture.

The breads have been made with wheat flour blend which includes Wildfarmed flour, which is produced using low input farming, with no pesticides, fungicides or herbicides used in growing the wheat.

The Wildfarmed model produces less carbon, with the reduction of chemicals plus the Wildfarmed biology based-cropping techniques, meaning that it produces 2.8kg less CO2 per kg than conventional flour.

The range, which is the result of a collaboration between Brakes, The Bread Factory, Speciality Breads and Wildfarmed, includes La Boulangerie burger buns, doughballs and bread rolls, as well as Wildfarmed branded artisan sourdough loaves, rolls, and burger buns, each offering a ‘unique, rustic crust with richly complex flavours’.

Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive at Sysco GB, said: “At the heart of this partnership is a shared commitment to deliver sustainable, healthy, and flavoursome food production. Regenerative agriculture will be key for foodservice operators to cut the emissions of the food they serve, so we’re pleased to be leading the way with this fantastic range.

“Our partnership introduces an exclusive range of artisanal bread products, combining The Bread Factory’s baking expertise with Wildfarmed’s responsibly grown flours, and bringing it within the reach of thousands of chefs through the Brakes’ network.”
