Bread Facts
Bread has been a staple food for humans since 7000BC. The workers who built the Egyptian pyramids were paid in bread.

Wheat production is estimated at 350 million tonnes annually.

12 million loaves of bread are made every single day. We consume only 8 million of these, the rest goes to waste.

The average UK household buys around 86 loaves per year.

70% of the bread we eat is white.

The UK bakery market is worth almost £3 billion. However, of all bakeries, less than 5% of them are real craft bakers.

Bread tastes really nice when toasted with jam on top.
