Planet Leicester Bakers is a business with social purpose and community at its heart.  Not only does it supply handmade bread to local people, but it is also the home of the ‘Sharing Bread’ community project and the Togetherness Programme, using proper bread to bring people and communities closer together.

Founded by Bread Angel Michelle Stratford in 2014, with the establishment of a micro-bakery selling handmade bread to order once a week from the home doorstep, funding was swiftly secured for a community project across Leicestershire. ‘Sharing Bread’ taught people how to make a simple loaf and encouraged them to pass on their skills. Further community projects and initiatives are supported by private training, speaking, event and team building offers.

Planet Leicester Bakers is a member of the Real Bread Campaign and the Bread Angels network. Whilst bread is the main focus of the business, we proactively promote improvements to attitudes to food, seeking creative ways to encourage thinking, increased knowledge and understanding of the benefits of ‘proper’ rather than ultra-processed bread and food.

With this in mind Planet Leicester Bakers is delighted to be a member of  Slow Food in the UK.
