Délifrance UK (Leicester) has launched a sweet-tasting, round flatbread inspired by a 19th century recipe from Lapland.

The Polar Bread is of Swedish origin, but French bakers have adopted the ‘pain polaire’, as it is known across the channel, and its popularity as a sandwich carrier has boomed.

The bread enables bakers to offer a new sandwich concept that can be open-topped like a pizza or toasted for a hot sandwich option.
