WHEATBERRY BAKERY - GLASGOW
Wheatberry is an artisan bakery and patisserie
that draws inspiration from well tested and
perfected French techniques. Cassie and Wojtek,
a husband and wife team who relocated to Glasgow from Brighton just over two years ago, have a deep love for laminated doughs and everything sourdough!
Cassie is a Pastry Master and Wojtek is a Bread Magician! Their ethos is being a local bakery in every sense of the word, and using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients for all their ever evolving bakes.
The couple puts a lot of care in the making and preparing of their bread and pastries.
The hand-crafted bread goes through a long fermentation which allows for the dough to develop
a full flavour and, using local Scottish flour in this process, allows for its quality to be fully celebrated
Their business is an active supporter of the Real Bread Campaign which perfectly describes real bread: “Real Bread has nothing to hide. It is made with simple, natural ingredients and NO artificial additives
”. Wheatberry bread is exactly this; Local Scottish flour, salt, water – nothing to hide."
SOJA BAKEHOUSE - GLASGOW
Ariel and Gerry met while working together at the Kember and Jones production unit – Ariel the baker and Gerry the driver. This is where Soja’s Bakehouse started but the story begins years before…
Ariel’s career in the kitchen began twelve years ago when he arrived in Glasgow from his native Poland. As a chef de partie in Café Zique, an opportunity arose to train as a baker. This is where Ariel discovered his true passion.
Gerry followed a similar path in hospitality, working across various roles in kitchens and bars across Glasgow, from the age of sixteen. When Gerry started working in Kember and Jones alongside Ariel they clicked instantly and would spend shifts discussing their desire to expand and develop the business. So when the opportunity arose to pursue their dream and open their own bakehouse they grasped this with both hands. It was with this leap of faith that Soja’s Bakehouse was born.

I.J.MELLIS CHEESEMONGERS - SCOTLAND
Before opening his first shop, partner and founder Iain Mellis had worked in the British cheese industry for almost 15 years. For some time he had felt that there was a lack of opportunity to buy high quality farmhouse cheese, both in the retail and wholesale sector. After much investigation and consultation in the UK and Europe, Iain decided upon a retail philosophy.
He wanted a traditional, old fashioned sense of service and style whilst using modern technology to maintain and enhance the unique characteristics of artisan cheese.One of the most important aspects of Iain’s thinking was flavour. Farmhouse cheese differs from mass-produced factory cheese because the milk comes from a single herd rather than several different sources.
In May 1993, Iain was ready to open his first shop.
He located a small, damp, cave-like shop halfway up Victoria Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. It was an ideal location. It was a place that could be kept cool and damp without too much trouble – perfect for storing cheese!
5 shops and a thriving online marketplace later, Mellis Cheesemongers have now been trading for over 27 years, bringing together producers and consumers for mutual benefit. The aim for the future is to continue this process while continually striving to improve.
BALLOCHMYLE FINE CHEESE - MAUCHLINE
This family business has created a simply superb Ballochmyle Ayrshire Farmhouse Brie
using milk from their own herd of Ayrshire Cows.
The family have been dairy farmers at East Montgarswood Farm since the early 1920’s and is
truly a family affair with husband, wife, son and daughter all lending a hand.
Ballochmyle has been in production since 2017
and has established as a highly desirable
Scottish Brie. Learning under the watchful eye
of renowned cheese authority Kathy Biss of
West Highland Dairy, it is no wonder their Brie
is consistently excellent.
Their rich milk from Ayrshire cows, the traditional breed for this part of Scotland, is perfect for this creamy medium soft cheese. Young Brie can be served firm and fresh and for those preferring a stronger cheese it matures to a rich melting sensation on the palate.
