How has 2013 been for you? Sure, it has been a hectic year. But what exactly happened in the world of bakery? That’s where you come in.

We want to build one of the most comprehensive pictures of bakery trade from the past 12 months, and we are calling on you, our loyal readers and users, to help us do so.

It couldn’t be simpler. Fill in our five minute Bakery Business Survey here, and help us gain an insight into the health of the high street and other aspects impacting bakery.

Once you’ve completed the survey, tweet us @BritishBaker accompanied with the hashtag #HighStreetBakery to let us know you have added your voice to the campaign.

Martyn Leek, editor of British Baker, said: “A lot of the media lately around the high street has been largely negative. But I visit businesses up and down the country that are performing well.

“For this reason, British Baker wants to gauge how well the retail side of bakery is doing. We hope the Bakery Business Survey will be a barometer of trade in 2013.”
