Northampton’s Daily Bread celebrates 40th anniversary

Daily Bread, one of Northamptonshire’s best-loved independent food & drink businesses, is marking its 40th anniversary.

To celebrate, the Northampton wholefood retailer – a co-operative – has planned several events for the next 12 months. John Clarke, Daily Bread’s longest-serving member of 33 years, said: “We’ve come a long way since a church group at St. Peter’s Church in Weston Favell decided to develop a business to reflect their beliefs. Now, four decades on, we want to say a big thank you to our loyal customers.”

Daily Bread has started its celebrations by launching a special-edition breakfast cereal – Ruby Muesli with cranberries and cinnamon – which is now on sale.

During its 40 years of trading, the co-operative has become a firm favourite in Northamptonshire and beyond. Furthermore, its online shop receives orders from across the UK.

Healthy wholefoods make up the core of Daily Bread’s sales. However, its 4,500-strong product range also offers environmentally-friendly cleaning products, herbal remedies, and cruelty-free body care & cosmetics.

In 2017, it was named ‘Growing Co-operative of the Year’ in the ‘Co-op of the Year Awards’. The following year it became the sponsor of the ‘Artisan Local Vegetarian / Vegan Product of the Year’ category in the Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards.
