Freedom Bakery is a social enterprise proudly based in Glasgow, Scotland. Our mission is simple: to make great bread — and to help people.
From sourdoughs to Struan loaves to French butter croissants, we make everything by hand. All our doughs are proved for at least 20 hours and delivered straight out of the oven.
We’re up early to bake (lucky our head baker Scott likes 4am starts), but through the day we also offer education and training to people whose lives have taken a rough turn.
Liaising closely with the Scottish prison service, we form relationships with prisoners on day release – and we offer employment opportunities when their sentences end. Why do we do this? Because we know work builds confidence. It makes a difference.
The better Freedom Bakery performs, the more we can do to help. And like any social enterprise, we put our profits back into the business. Bread is good for us, and good for our community. Think of it as a sourdough society.
