World Bread Awards 2023 update

You may have been wondering about World Bread Awards 2023.

As the external climate continues to be extremely challenging for all those involved in the Awards, with the energy situation, cost of living crisis, rise in cost of ingredients and labour shortages, we have taken the decision to pause the Awards for this year.

We know this will be disappointing news for you to receive. It has not been an easy decision for us - we think it is well known how deeply committed to supporting British bakers we are - but we feel strongly it is the right thing to do in the circumstances.

Thank you so much for all your ongoing support and friendship, we value it enormously.
