Joe’s bakery – Britain’s Best Loaf WINNER!

There are many of us who already know Joe’s Bakery produce Britain’s best loaves but it’s great they now have an award to make it official!

Joe’s Bakery, who have two stores on Gloucester Road, won both the Sourdough with other ingredients and White Loaf categories and were Highly commended in the Plain Sourdough section. The winning bread from each of the five categories then went on to be judged for overall champion – which Joe’s deservedly won with their Prune and Cardamom Sourdough. This seasonal bread is officially Britain’s Best Loaf 2021! Although normally not available until the winter, Joe’s will be baking the winning loaf on a Friday and Saturday over the coming weeks. You can pick up their winning White City Loaf daily, along with all their other fabulous traditional and speciality breads.

Joe’s owners, Jane and Martin, are delighted to have received this fantastic accolade and see it as a fitting tribute to all of the hard-work the whole team put in. They attribute much of the success to bakery manager Wayne and shop manager Jenny, who were responsible for the bakery entering the competition. Partners Wayne and Jenny are the future of Joe’s Bakery, who will be taking on the two local stores when Jane and Martin decide to retire. If winning Britain’s Best Loaf is anything to go by, our much-loved local bakeries are in extremely safe hands!
