For over 100 years, Fletchers has been a beloved fixture in British kitchens, gracing tables with fluffy, delicious sliced bread. Founded in 1895 by George Henry Fletcher, they were known for their iconic “Better fetch a Fletcher loaf!” slogan and those striking red and cream delivery vans that dotted the streets of Sheffield from 1890 to 1999. Today, Fletchers Bread remains a leading force in the wholesale bread market and we’re proud to have this legendary brand as part of the Kara Foodservice family.

Baking for the nation since 1895

By the age of 12, founder George Fletcher was a baking apprentice, learning all the tricks of the trade of baking delicious bread from his father. In 1950, Fletchers had grown to such a rate that a new factory, dubbed the ‘Fletchers Super Bakery’, was opened at Claywheels Lane and became a recognisable landmark within its hometown.

In 2000, the company went through a series of acquisitions before calling Finsbury Foods its home in 2014. Since joining the Finsbury family, Fletcher’s bread has remained a staple for our customers, providing the same sliced bread that has been known and loved since 1895. From traditional thick white to medium wholemeal sliced bread; the Fletchers range is versatile enough to cater for a wide range of audiences, from the education sector to hospitality and everything in between.
