THE Jenkins family business has been voted the Most Loved Bakery in Wales.
The Llanelli-based Jenkins Bakery scooped the award after a public vote as part
of the national Craft Bakers’ Week 2015.
"It's a wonderful honour and a huge achievement for the team at Jenkins Bakery,"
said operations director Russell Jenkins.
"We strive to produce quality products for our customers and we are delighted when
we get such marvellous support to win a great prize.
"We have some top class craft bakers on the team here at Jenkins and pride ourselves
on producing both traditional and innovative breads.
"You will find standard white and brown loaves on our shelves as well as regular
speciality products such as Chia Seed Bread, Artisan Sour Dough and Spelt and Honey
Bread. We really do have something for everyone, something to suit all tastes."
Now in its seventh year, Craft Bakers’ Week offers bakers an opportunity to raise
awareness of both their own business and the craft bakery sector in the UK.
Nearly 400 craft bakery businesses took part last year and between them they raised
£20,000 for the campaign’s charity partner, Make-A-Wish UK.
The Jenkins family business will celebrate 95 years in business in 2016. The Jenkins
Bakery employs nearly 300 people, full and part-time, across 29 different stores
in South Wales.
