Directory of Co-operatives
In the Beginning, Loaf originated (August 2009) as a community supported bakery run from the south Birmingham home of Director, Tom Baker and his wife Jane.
Originally baking for neighbours once a week using a wood-fired oven in his garden, Tom went on to teach forgotten food skills from his home kitchen marking the beginnings of the Loaf Cookery School.
Bringing Real Food to the High Street - Today, Loaf has a successful cookery school and full time bakery on Stirchley high street in Birmingham, launching in September 2012 with fantastic support from the local community, a growing national reputation, and an ever expanding and dedicated staff team.
In 2016, LOAF made the transition to a worker owned co-operative and aims to continue to support workers and play its part for the local community.
