We like to keep it local, so wherever possible we buy our raw materials from businesses in the Yorkshire region. Around 65% of these are locally sourced and include dairy, meat and wheat. A further 20% is UK sourced and the remaining ingredients are imported from reputable international sources.
Our most important asset is our people. There are a great many fantastic stories, like the one about Margaret who has now been with the business for 40 years. Margaret walked 6 miles in the snow to make the Sandwiches in Malton because she didn't want to let the customers and the team down!
This year sees us celebrating 40 years of long service for 7 of our original team members who helped start Thomas the Baker with us back in 1981. Once a year we invite along our 20, 25, 30 and now 35 year long service members of the team to join the family for a great night out to celebrate their fantastic loyalty to Thomas the Baker. We are exceptionally proud of them, and enjoy great company and food, and a few well deserved drinks. This year we are delighted to be able to boast that over 60 team members have given us their loyalty for 20 years of service or more.
