The Loafers Artisan bread company is comprised of a dedicated and highly skilled team of bakers who share a passion for creating incredible new tastes for our customers.
We use both organic and non-organic flours and as an artisan bread company we bake with only the finest ingredients and each supplier has been selected specifically for being the best provider on the market.
We prioritise the use of grain from WA farmers and have partnered with Millers Foods, a Western Australian owned and operated mill. Thanks to our highly skilled bakers we’re able to create an exceptional range of products with a great variety of flavours and textures.
We operate quality control so literally nothing leaves our bakery unless it is absolutely spot on and as we are proud of our long-standing reputation for excellence.
Like most artisan bread bakeries we take our baking very seriously and believe the reason people love our bread as much as they do is because we always go the extra distance to create something truly original. Our breads and other baked products are based on unique recipes we have spent endless hours fine tuning to ensure our wholesale clients can deliver a new taste and texture sensation to their customers.
The secret to a successful artisan bread bakery is being brave in the approach to the baking process and our bold attitude in our pursuit of innovative baking methods and ingredients has allowed us to ensure our range is distinctive on every level.
WHY LOAFERS ARTISAN
Loafers Artisan was founded by two individuals who are passionate about bread and who wish to share their enthusiasm with others. Alaine Guthrie and Damian Norvilas have worked tirelessly to create innovative products that are one hundred percent wholesome and the couple pour all their energy into continually improving the quality of Loafers Artisan’s baked produce.
OUR APPROACH TO BAKING
Our breads are superior because we are always one step ahead of the market and we have steadily developed our line of wholesale products to become a WA leader in supplies to chefs, restaurants, cafes and shops. As a hospitality professional Alaine has been able to use her extensive experience in this area to identify the needs of both customers and the hospitality industry. Her career has taken her beyond Perth and throughout Europe. During a decade of work in this industry prior to creating Loafers Artisan, she was able to pick up some amazing insights into the hospitality industry. This combined with Damian’s extensive experience in the baking industry has resulted in Loafers Artisan being able to offer people something very different. Products such as our Lupin and Linseed Loaf and Sourdoughs have become icons within the Perth food scene.
WE TAKE OUR TIME
Exceptional bread takes time which is why we never rush the process and often use traditional techniques such as lengthy fermentations of up to three days at a time. As a result our range has been premium from the outset. Our baked products are only available through high end restaurants, cafes and select retail outlets.
Thanks to Damian being a trained baker and qualified food scientist, he is able to experiment with recipes as part of the Loafers Artisan’s commitment to continually developing their range.
