Back to Blog list
At the beginning of the year Sainsbury's released gluten free fresh bakery bread into just under 200 of their supermarkets. We released a blog about the bread as it was released, you can read that right here.

In the first few weeks we heard reports that the bread had sold more than 400% over what head office anticipated, since then we have heard all kinds of rumours, most of which came from bakeries within the stores. We have been in contact with Sainsbury's and we can confirm that the rumours that the bread is being completely removed from shelves in absolute rubbish and headquarters are investigating into where this information has come from.

We did however find out that some of the branches are limiting the range down to three items instead of six but they aren't completely going, just reducing down to the lines that sell best, after all the initial release was and still is a trial.

We also found out last week that 70 more branches were getting in the fresh bakery bread which is cooked in special heatproof bags to prevent cross contamination (the bread never leaves the bag from when it is made in the factory until you open it at home). In our original blog post from when the bread was first released, you can find out more about the bread.

Below you will find the list of all the stores selling the fresh bread, stores in RED are the new stores which are stocking the bread, BLACK stores have been stocking the bread since January however the lines may or may not be reduced down in these stores.

We hope with the expansion that this means the range is proving to a success despite what rumours may suggest and that the range just keeps getting pushed out into more stores. It really is some of the best bread out there and deserves to be a success.

Hi Sally, we don't have anything to do with Sainsburys and can only go off the information they provide to us. With the bread being rolled to most stores we can only hope they continue to push it out to more stores in the future. It may we worth speaking to the store manager, the more requests they get for a particular branch to do it the more likely it will get pushed to there.

Still nothing in Bath. Why not? Is the population of Bath not big enough?

Nothing in Plymouth Marsh Mills, and the staff have never heard of it. Getting annoyed with Sainsburys for this!

absolutely the best tasting alternative I have come across, normally have to toast previous types to compensate for the mealy texture but these loaves are great for just an honest to goodness sandwich, toast is great too, they freeze and defrost perfectly. I buy everything available on the shelf when its there and stick it in the freezer, would be great if its success brought the price down a bit though

david pavesi - 12th June 2017

Its the price they charge for glutenfree products including bread ,which far to expensive,the price needs reducing by half at least,and it would still cost more than Wheat Products,its profiteering from an illness a disease,they aught to be ashamed of the GREED.
