We’re an independent social enterprise and worker co-op, specialising in slowly fermented, hand-crafted bread.
Leeds Bread Co-op was established in the summer of 2012 by 3 founder members, who were motivated to make great quality, delicious bread made with healthy, well-sourced ingredients available to the people of Leeds, whilst creating an ethical and enjoyable workplace that provided good livelihoods to the workers.
With the help of a supportive community and loyal customers, we have slowly grown over the last few years – but have held true to the original aims of the co-op and to our co-operative values.
We, along with all our fellow co-operatives around the world, are based on the co-operative values of democracy, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and solidarity. We aim for a non-hierarchical workplace where empowerment of staff, care of the community and collective self-reliance are at the core of how we function.
All of our products and our work is underpinned by the co-operative values and by our own Principles:
Quality & Integrity
PLEASE NOTE: We do not keep spare supplies of bread on site. This product is ordered especially for you as as such we need a little advance notice. The bakery needs our orders on a Friday morning for the whole of the following week so please bear this in mind when placing your order. Unless we receive it by 9am on a Friday morning we won't be able to guarantee to have your meat the following week.
