One million loaves is a lot of bread

B.C. bakeries to celebrate 15 years, one million loaves on Saturday

True Grain Bread will celebrate 15 years of baking and one million loaves of bread at its three locations this Saturday.

Todd Laidlaw, owner of True Grain Bread in Summerland, said one million loaves is a lot of bread.

How much?

If the bread was lined up, end to end, the row of loaves would extend from Vancouver to Whistler and then back to Vancouver, Laidlaw said.

All breads are made by hand.
