Breadshare is a non-profit, social enterprise whose mission is REAL BREAD FOR EVERYONE.
As a social enterprise, Breadshare wants to fix the problems caused by modern, industrially-produced bread.
Our solution is to:
Make bread using slow fermentation techniques, using only the best organic ingredients, without additives
Educate the general public through opportunities to talk to people at community groups, local and farmers markets, and bakery visits and workshops
Make nutritious bread more accessible by keeping our prices down
Take an active role in the local food supply chain by looking at smaller and more sustainable processing and distribution options
Support the establishment of new community bakeries through licensing the Breadshare model and assisting other communities to do what we have done.
Longer fermentation (at least four hours), preferably in the presence of sourdough bacteria
