British Baker launched it’s first-ever Bakery Business Survey to gauge opinions from the industry last year.

The results formed part of the Bakery Market Report 2014 – a complete analysis of the retail bakery market – which was published in March.

And this December we have launched the survey again, with the aim of assessing the current state of the retail bakery sector and identifying the issues causing most concern.

For example, last year 43.8% of our survey’s respondents said they were more positive about the baking industry.

But what will the results show this year?


British Baker is calling on all retail bakers to take part and make next year’s survey even more comprehensive. We want to know just a few details about sales, confidence and outlook and the survey takes just a few minutes to complete.

Martyn Leek, editor of British Baker, said: “The Bakery Business Survey was one of the first-ever attempts by British Baker to gauge the reaction of the industry to their trading challenges and it was widely supported by the industry.

“The past year has been one of conflicting fortunes within the industry and hopefully the latest survey will be able to provide a snapshot of the current state of play.”
