Scottish craft bakery Black of Dunoon has signed a deal to supply Waitrose in Helensburgh with its hand-baked breads. 

The Argyllshire-based company’s loaves will go on sale from tomorrow (1 April) and is the only supermarket listing for the company. Breads on offer will include the Grants Loaf, based on a traditional wheaten loaf recipe, and a low-GI loaf, which is high in fibre, low in fat and provides sustained energy for an extended period.

Customers who are part of the myWaitrose loyalty scheme will enjoy an exclusive 10% discount on the new range for a limited time

Black of Dunoon’s bread is made using traditional techniques, with each dough resting to increase its flavour before proving and firing. Three generations of the Black family work in the bakery, which was established in 1922.

Director Charles Black Senior said: “Waitrose is a perfect fit for us, because both companies believe in investing in staff and working together in partnership to drive the business forward. We already supply outlets across Argyll and the Western Isles and now that my son and daughter have taken over the running of the business, we hope to take our products even further afield.”
