We are artisans at scale.

You know real baking is where the goodness is. With Good Honest, you’ll never compromise on serving your customers anything but the best again, no matter your supply demands.
Our large team of talented bakers bring their skill to the bakery floor everyday so we can supply hospitality and grocery businesses, and their customers with premium artisan baking.
No matter the order, we deliver the same excellent standard every time, on time and in full. We’re the perfect partner for growing restaurants and cafés building their reputation on serving the best.

However you need it.

For the past decade, we’ve explored and experimented in the kitchen to answer the wide and varied calls of trends and tastes.

Today, we’ve honed a range of artisan baked goods (breads, buns and bagels) and goodies (pastries, slices and scones, muffins and macarons) to satisfy any menu. But like you we’re creative too, so if you have a dream dish that needs something special, we’d love to work with you to adapt an existing recipe or cook up something entirely new.
