  • BFP becomes a Silver Supporter of the Craft Baker's Association (CBA)

  • Dough. Our way of saying 'thank you'

    We’ve recently turbo-charged our rewards programme so we thought it was also time to give it a lick of paint and a new name. So without further ado, we’re delighted to introduce ‘Dough’.

  • The lowdown on flour

    Flour is a baker’s workhorse. It’s a staple of the bakery and fundamental to most baked goods. And with the UK bakery industry making 12 million loaves of bread and 10 million cakes and biscuits every day, we’d be lost without it.

    Because it's such a fixture in the bakery we can sometimes take flour for granted, so today we thought it might be nice to take a fresh look at our old friend.

  • An easy route to doughnuts with a wow! factor

    There’s nothing like baking doughnuts from scratch. You put your own unique signature on them, you bask in the smells as they’re prepped and you get the satisfaction of seeing customers enjoy your creations.

    But let’s face it, pressures on time and skilled staff means that scratch baking doughnuts simply isn’t always an option. That’s where top quality frozen doughnuts which are ready to eat once thawed come in.

For you our customers, this means a wider range and greater product availability.
