Celebrating Artisan Bakery


Thank you so much to the team British Baker for a wonderful afternoon celebrating all things Artisan in the world of bakery.

It was delicious and so great to chat, collaborate and share ideas, views, and ways forward. The launch of the #TheArtisanCollective was a huge success with the baker’s dozen awards the culmination of the afternoon. The event offered a series of workshops covering a wide variety of topics to enable those attending to gain the most from the afternoon. Topics included: recruitment, NPD, Social Media, mastering the art of Portuguese custard tarts. 

Vhari enjoyed chatting all things social with Catherine for Lovingly Artisan and Matthew from Project D. It was great to see how both businesses have used social media to drive sales with Project D working with TikTok to drive sales of their valentines doughnut. Lovingly Artisan have used social media to share the brand values they have and the pure love of bread. 

Congratulations to all the winners and those who nominated you for making the world a much tastier place!

“We created The Artisan Collective to celebrate artisan bakeries and the people behind them while offering a platform to share experiences and skills. The community is a vibrant and exciting one with lots of great ideas and by bringing people together we can make the industry even better. We’re thrilled with the success of the first event – it was great to see so many passionate people networking and sharing ideas on topics including recruitment, marketing, and creating amazing products.” – Amy North Editor of British Baker
