Part of the food and farming charity Sustain, the Real Bread Campaign was launched in November 2008, in partnership with Andrew Whitley of Bread Matters.
The Campaign defines Real Bread as made without the use of processing aids or any other artificial additives. From this universally-accessible starting point, the Campaign works to find and share ways of making bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.
The Campaign’s work championing the rise of Real Bread and challenging obstacles to it includes: the Together We Rise therapeutic and social baking initiative, lobbying for an Honest Crust Act to protect shoppers from incomplete and misleading labelling and marketing, No Loaf Lost surplus slicing guide for small bakeries, the annual Real Bread Week and Sourdough September awareness drives, The Real Bread Finder and Real Bread Loaf Mark.
The Campaign’s network includes hundreds of bakeries and thousands more people who care about their daily loaf, with paid-up supporters in more than 20 countries.
