The search for Britain’s Best Loaf is back on!

Do you have what it takes to make Britain’s Best Loaf? If so, here’s your chance to prove it.

The 2018 Britain’s Best Loaf competition, sponsored by Rank Hovis, takes place at the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC in Birmingham on Monday 16 April.

If you reckon your bread could be a winner in one of our five categories – Sourdough, Wholegrain, White, Innovation and Gluten Free – then visit for more information and to submit your entry.

Once again industry professionals, including former Best Loaf winners, will judge the competition, which has captured the hearts of craft bakers across the country.

“The competition gives Britain’s bakers a great chance to showcase their skill and their bread to their peers and potential customers,” said British Baker editor Vince Bamford.

“It is always a tough competition and I’m sure our judges will again have to make hard decisions in determining who wins the individual category awards and, of course, who takes the ultimate accolade of Britain’s Best Loaf.”

The Farm Shop & Deli Show takes place from 16-18 April 2018 at the NEC, Birmingham, and will again offer a fantastic selection of produce and products from local and regional suppliers.
