Marshfield Bakery was started in 1984 by Paul and Lynne White in their farmhouse kitchen in Marshfield, a small village on the Cotswold Way that would come to influence the products made by the couple and their employees.
The business began to expand, with interest growing in the local Cotswold Company and its selection of flapjacks, shortbreads, biscuits and loaf cakes, which meant that the location needed to be up sized. Marshfield Bakery has now moved to its third site on the A46 just outside Bath after a brief production run at a larger farmhouse just outside of the village. This third site, only 50 yards from the Cotswold Way south, was opened in 2008 by HRH Camilla Duchess of Cornwall and continues to thrive in the countryside environment. With just under fifty employees, Marshfield Bakery has expanded significantly since its humble beginnings but still retains its family values and a grade ‘A’ BRC accreditation.
Due to the expansion of the business we are now able to run an exciting, rolling new product development program, aimed at opening opportunities in new markets as well as to refresh our branded range.We are able to produce private label or bespoke recipe products and pride ourselves in our flexibility to meet the needs of our customers, but always with full attention to meeting detailed quality standards.
Our NPD team have developed new products to compliment the core range that we began with. Now in our 30th year, we currently manufacture over fifteen different flavours across shortbread and flapjack products, a range of loaf cakes, sponges, brownies and a range of biscuits influenced by the local Cotswold area.
In September 2015, an extension to the bakery on the A46 was completed allowing for increased production and more members of staff to be employed. The commemorative plaque of the extension was unveiled by HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO on Thursday 10th September witnessed by a small handful of our customers, suppliers, friends and families.
