== Bread ambitions ==

Heatherslaw Bakery hopes to be making bread "on a big scale", following the success of its new 1lb Heatherslaw bloomer, made with ingredients sourced within a three-mile radius. Heatherslaw Bakery in Northumberland, which employs up to 40 people, had previously concentrated on producing cakes and biscuits, but is now looking to breadmaking as an additional business focus.
