A Sustainable Business

Home » A Sustainable Business


Innovative and collaborative work on the development of a more nutritious grain, flour and bread supply chain has been pioneered by Bread Matters Ltd. That knowledge and experience is being given to this new sustainable venture.

Scotland The Bread has already benefited from a “soft” loan of £6,000 from the A Team Foundation matched by a successful crowdfunding campaign through Buzzbank, which raised £6,536 from 118 supporters.

We have received support from Community Shares Scotland in developing and launching this share offer.

Achieving our community share offer target has enabled us to receive a grant of £20,000 and a loan of £20,000 under Just Growth, a programme created by Co-operative and Community Finance, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Funding Enlightened Agriculture, to support community based food and farming projects.

The aim of our plan is to build a business that is self-financing and generating a profit of £17,544 in its fifth year.
