Waitrose takes Bakery Andante beyond Edinburgh
Bakery Andante has secured a deal to supply a further four branches of Waitrose in Scotland with artisan bread.
Their bread is already stocked in the two Edinburgh branches of Waitrose and a selection of Jon Wood’s handmade sourdoughs and New York deli-style bread will now also be on sale at the Byres Road, Milngavie, Stirling and Newton Mearns stores from mid-April.
Bakery Andante has been baking since 2010 and and has recently expanding with new premises in Leith. All of the freshly baked breads are made from scratch, using locally sourced ingredients where possible – with no improvers, additives or food colouring.
Owner of Bakery Andante, Jon Wood comments: “Initially we weren’t interested in supplying supermarkets. However, when we got the call from Waitrose we decided it was definitely worth a try, as it suits our brand perfectly – and they liked our home-made, high quality artisan product.
“Supplying the two stores in Edinburgh has been extremely successful, and we’re pleased that with our new facility in Leith we’re finally able to supply more of the branches. We’ve hired some extra staff and have taken on some fantastic apprentices, so it’s an exciting time for us at Andante.”
The new bread will be on sale in store on the following dates:
· Stirling 27th March
· Milngavie 3rd April
· Byres Road 10th April
· Newton Mearns 17th April
