We are living in extraordinary times, times that will test us all in ways we cannot yet imagine.

Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food was not defeated by the restrictions imposed due to coronavirus. In normal times, the awards celebrate the loaf. For 2020, the Awards recognised the people behind the loaf, the bakers, millers, farmers and all others closely involved.

The bread community has undertaken many wonderful initiatives to help us all get through. The Awards wanted to shine a
well-deserved light on and celebrate these with

Tiptree World Bread Awards Heroes with Brook Food

We asked you to share all your uplifting stories of bakers, millers, farmers doing their bit – whether donating bread to the homeless, biking bread out to the elderly and isolated in their community, or turning cafes into dark kitchens for home delivery and more.

You sent us your stories that showed your Bread Hero’s impact on their community, their reach, how they may have innovated, their generosity of spirit or their care for the wellbeing of others.

From the hundreds of nominations received, 12 regional Bread Hero winners and one Overall Winner of the title ‘Tiptree World Bread Awards Hero with Brook Food 2020’ were announced during an Online Awards Evening on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
