Q&A on our new bread range
What’s different about Co-op bread?
Our bread is made in some of the most modern plants in the UK, using the latest technology. The way it’s made is carefully controlled, which means we can be sure our bread is really great quality, every single time.
Where does the flour in Co-op bread come from?
All our flour is milled in the UK, by the same company that bakes our bread. They’ve been making it since 1935, so we know we can trust where our ingredients come from, and that they’re the best quality. And, by cutting out the middle man, we can give you the best price possible, too.
What difference does using UK-milled flour make?
When flour is imported, it can lose moisture and even go down in quality, meaning your bread won’t be as delicious as it could be. And of course, by reducing transport costs we can give you an even better price for your loaf.
How long does it take to make a loaf of Co-op bread?
From mixing the ingredients, through the single rise that gives our bread its great texture and crumb, to producing a freshly baked loaf - all this takes about 4 hours. We think it’s well worth it.
How do I know my loaf is fresh?
As well as carefully choosing who makes our bread, the recipes we use are designed to make sure every loaf’s up to scratch. We test our breads and recipes regularly, too, so you can trust our bread to be delicious throughout its shelf life.
Is anything done by hand?
The way our bread’s made is fully automated. It means we can produce loaves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet demand. It means we know it’ll be the same great quality, every single time, too.
How many times is the dough left to rise and why?
A single rising is enough to get the best possible structure and texture.
What time do the bakers have to get up in the morning to make the bread?
Due to high demand and the level of automation, the bread is produced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
