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.

The many loaves of bread from True Grain include white bread, multigrain, sourdough and many breads made with ancient grains.

Sophia Jackson, marketing coordinator at the Summerland bakery, said the multigrain is the most popular loaf in Summerland.

Other local favourites include red fife sourdough, cinnamon raisin bread and khorasan, a whole grain loaf.

All breads are made by hand.

True Grain Bread began in Cowichan Bay in 2004.

The Summerland location was opened in 2012 and a location in Courtenay was opened in 2017.

The Summerland location has won numerous awards over the years, including Business of the Year in Summerland in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and Summerland’s Tourism/Hospitality Excellence Award in 2018. three years in a row.
