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

The 2017 Britain’s Best Loaf competition, sponsored by Rank Hovis, takes place at the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC in Birmingham on 24 April.

If you think your bread has what it takes to be a winner in one of our five categories – Sourdough, Wholegrain, White, Innovation, Gluten Free – then go to for more information and to download an entry form.

Once again, a team of professionals will judge the competition, which has captured the hearts of craft bakers across the country.

“This event is a fantastic opportunity for Britain’s bakers to showcase their skill and the quality of their products to their peers and potential customers,” said British Baker editor Vince Bamford.
“It is always a hard-fought competition and I’m sure our expert judges will once again have to make some tough decisions in deciding who takes the individual category awards and, of course, the ultimate accolade of Britain’s Best Loaf.”
