Energy Saving Ovens 2011

The Authentic Bread Company has always striven to be an environmentally conscious business, being Organic ensures the use of environmentally friendly and animal friendly farming methods under strict regulations. We also participate fully in recycling services and minimising land fill with a 'manufacture to order policy' and also incorporate a range of Eco-minded packaging. The installation of wood burning ovens has been a big step in significantly reducing our carbon output.

As quoted in the Renewable Energy Progress Report: South West Annual Survey 2011

'During June 2010 the Authentic Bread Company, suppliers of the Abel and Cole brand, replaced two electric bread ovens with two wood pellet burning rack ovens. Each oven has a 50 kW output and together are expected to save approximately 55 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. The new system was installed by Bakewell Ovens Ltd, currently the only installers of their type within the UK. The Authentic Bread Company is now being used as a national example of how bakeries throughout the UK can reduce their electricity bills and carbon footprints.'
