About Scotland The Bread

Scotland The Bread is a Member-owned community benefit society

  • Growing, milling and selling organic, nutritious flour
  • Campaigning for a better, more biodiverse flour and bread supply
  • Researching and improving the nutrient profile of grain
  • Supporting citizen growers to produce their own flour

We are working towards a sustainable, fair supply of flour that better nourishes people and the planet. This revolution aims to improve the quality of a staple food for everyone: funded by our customers, members and supporters to provide flour for all.

Scotland The Bread began in 2012 as a project within Bread Matters. It brings together plant breeders, farmers, millers, bakers, nutritionists and citizens with the common purpose of producing nutritious grain, milling it close to home and using it to make wholesome, slowly-fermented bread that everyone can enjoy.
