Bakers’ Dozen Fund
At East Coast Bakehouse we love our food, but we’re very aware that not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy good food. Although we’re a new bakehouse we believe in bringing back some of the better, older traditions…. like the Bakers’ Dozen. In traditional baking a “Bakers Dozen” was 13 instead of 12.. The baker always added one loaf to the batch to ensure that no-one was left short. That’s why we’ve established the “Bakers Dozen Fund” and we’ve pledged the profits from every 13th biscuit to the fund to benefit Irish charities who work to improve the communities we live in.
Love Irish Food
East Coast Bakehouse is delighted to be a member of Love Irish Food who aims to help you make informed choices about buying locally produced food and drinks.
Behind every Irish product you buy, including our own, is a real home-grown story about people working from farm to factory to supermarket floor to bring you great quality Irish products. It’s these people that you support when buying Irish products and, together, we can make a real difference.
It’s simple, buying more Irish made products helps Irish businesses thrive and protects Irish jobs. That’s something that we can all be proud of.
Remember to look for the Love Irish Food logo on our packaging and others as supporting local Irish businesses, supports jobs in your community.
We’re also committed to ensuring that we are a sustainable producer, taking care to develop our processes, sourcing policies and ways of doing business that have minimal impact on our environment. We’re working with Bord Bia to implement the Origin Green Programme, aiming to deliver real improvements in how we reduce waste, improve our use of energy and generally do our bit for the environment.
Irish Girl Guides
We’re delighted to partner with the Irish Girl Guides on their #futureceo programme. Girl guides all over the country will sell the range of Irish Girl Guides cookies, made by East Coast Bakehouse to raise funds for their local unit. Guides learn entrepreneurial skills, grow in self-confidence, develop teamwork and leadership skills. Watch out for Cookie month in November!
