Welcome to the only Awarding and Regulatory body for Artisan Bakers in Scotland .

DESIGN | CREATE | INNOVATE

This award system is the only one of its kind in scotland. There is not an Awarding body for Baking but many for Master Bakers. This scheme aims to award the outstanding Baking that exists in scotland and acts as a fantastic online guide to tourists and local people alike to the very best establishments that produce quality Baking.

There will be no bad reviews as only the establishments that are Awarded the SBA(Scottish Baking Award)will be featured, therefore acting as a genuine guide. These establishments will be issued with their Award which can be displayed in their premises, signfying good Baking. If you dont have an Award then you either have not been Assessed or failed to meet Assessment criteria. This scheme will cleverly create healthy competition within Scotlands Baking industry and improve the level of Baking for our customers. Many many places advertise baking today but how many can actually say its excellent. This is their aim -to achieve a higher standard within Scotland and to stand alone in the world for excellent Baking no matter where you go in Scotland.

Proud to be showcasing Scotland's Artisan Bakers

People often ask me what the difference is between The Scottish Baking Awards and the 100 year old  Member/Trade organisation that is " SAMB" ( Scottish Bakers).  I always feel quite proud in saying that since we started The Scottish Baking Awards in 2009 ,the "SAMB" (after a century long )  felt the need to change their name to Scottish Bakers in the same year .  

This tells me a few things - Firstly , There is a huge demand for Artisan type Bakers and small business people including Homebakers to be recognised in the world we live in. For too long we have always associated great bakers with big business and mass produced baking including supermarkets.  

With the massive success that shows like the " Great British Bake-Off and "Britains Best Bakery" have achieved, it has made every single one of us believe that we too can bake . This in turn has made us more discerning and more educated in the type of Cakes,Bakery produce we buy. Most people now know the difference between a mass produced product with a million different ingredients and a sell by date until 2 years from now !!

The massive rise in the Homebaker business that now supplies to bigger retail outlets is also on the up . This is great news for all as it improves the standard in this industry .

Secondly , we at the Scottish Baking Awards are not a Trade /Member organisation and therefore we can pick and choose freely who our Awardees will be, without the fear of offending any member that pays maybe £1000s of pounds a year in Membership.

We believe if we are including the entire length and breadth of Scotland in our Awards each year with no yearly cost to yourself that we are " Credible " .

Lets raise our glassess to the true ,talented ,small and not so small ,remote, Artisan Bakers in Scotland . Because we are now in the majority . Here's to 2015 !
