The Danish baker who founded Bread Etcetera and managed the Celtic Bakers has set up a new wholesale bakery near Chichester in West Sussex, supplying a range of artisan breads and pastries.

Troels Bendix set up the Hungry Guest Bakery in August this year and has since opened a café and local food store in the nearby town of Petworth under the same name. The 3,000sq ft bakery makes products such as the wholemeal Petworth Loaf, using flour from a local mill with wheat grown in the area. Other breads in the 20-strong range include Swedish rye bread and the sprouted West Sussex Loaf.

The firm also makes cakes and flapjacks and will supply a new mobile bread company called Du Pain Du Van, delivering to rural areas.
