An update on all things British Pride!
Since the launch of British Pride Imports (our own importing division) in 2020, we became the 1st and only British store in Ontario to be fully independent. Everything in our stores is produced by our incredible team or imported by us. This has seen us cut out the huge importers that give preferential rates to the big box and grocery stores and shift thier low dated items to British stores. With our growing number of retail locations and our suppliers unable to meet our needs, we took the leap and did it ourselves and went one step further by bringing in Canada’s most comprehensive range of British frozen foods!
We are now the exclusive baker, butcher and grocery importer for many British stores across Canada and will continue to stick to supporting small, family run businesses as well as our local communities through food bank donations and other charitable contributions. In a time where British Pride Bakery and many of the British stores we supply heavily rely on our customers supporting local business, we’ll stick to our values and maintain no interest in supplying our products to large, faceless companies and big box stores.
Our business started in a small, humble unit on Hespeler Road in Cambridge, ON. Our baked goods have always separated us from anyone else, everything we make and bake is from scratch, the way it should be. We had a chain of bakeries in Plymouth, England moving to Canada in 2008 and so we know a thing or two about baking! Since 2018, we now have five award winning retail locations, with our fifth in Hamilton having opened February 14, 2022! Another three locations are planned for later this year, with the long awaited Mississauga opening on the horizon! Our main production facility is expanding in May 2022, increasing our butchery capabilities, with another 4,000sqft being added to our existing 8,000sqft of production space!
Our butchery stems from the original Scottish butchers in Canada, the famous Crawford’s. We acquired Crawford’s (Brit Grocer Niagara) in 2020 and are excited to be carrying on his incredible legacy. You will not find more traditional recipes than ours, dating back over 60 years!
2022 will be another huge year for British Pride Bakery. Our importing will take on a new level with ‘never seen in Canada’ items planned for arrival very soon, our retail locations are growing from four to six, the expansion of our production facility by 4000sqft and the continued expansion of Kings Cross British Shop who exclusively carry British Pride Bakery goods and have three more locations already planned, with Peterborough coming next!
Nothing we do is possible with you and you motivate us to continually improve. You have supported us for 12 years and with every passing day we strive to make your experience better than the last. Thank you so much from everyone in the British Pride Bakery family!
