Clayton Park Bakery has agreed a deal with Blackburn Rovers, which will see it become the football club’s official bakery.
The bakery, based in Accrington, Lancashire, will also supply a range of its premium products to the Blues Bar at the club’s ground, Ewood Park, and The Brew Room at Oneroverstore – the club’s new town centre outlet.
The firm already supplies pies to a number of football clubs in the north west, including Liverpool, Everton, Preston North End and Accrington Stanley.
“As the closest Premier League club to our bakery in Clayton-le-Moors, Rovers have been on our wish list for a number of years,” commented Barry Thomas, MD, Clayton Park. “This is not only a boost for Clayton Park Bakery, but also our many local suppliers, who will benefit from this extra business.”
Melanie Lewis, general catering manager at Rovers, added: “Clayton Park Bakery is an example of the county’s great reputation for food producers and quality produce. We’ve listened to the fans and worked hard over the summer to vary our range of pastries. In fact, some products are currently exclusive to Blackburn Rovers, including the Cottage Pie and Balti Pie.”
Clayton Park also works in partnership with Lancashire County Cricket Club, as well as Spar and Booths supermarkets.
