Fosters Bakery of Mapplewell, Barnsley, been crowned the winner of the Tiptree World Bread Awards Heroes with Brook Food for Yorkshire & Humber, in a special online awards evening last night (Tuesday 13th October).
Fosters Bakery is a large-scale bakery supplying high-quality vegan and vegetarian bread and confectionery for food service. During lockdown they worked tirelessly to supply the local community.
“They have provided a lovely, friendly service of family-sized flour, yeast and bread bundles using a drive through service, come rain or shine!” said one of their nominators, Tim Fulford, “They have enabled some of us who have been helping those in the community who were confined to their homes to collect and distribute bread and supplies for others. The staff always have a smile and a cheery word. Nothing has been too much trouble.”
