For over 100 years Fletchers has remained one of the best-selling and most loved sliced bread ranges in the UK. Founded in 1895 by George Henry Fletcher, Fletchers was recognised for its advertising slogan, ‘Better fletch a Fletcher loaf’, as well as its striking read and cream delivery vans that frequented Sheffield from 1890 to 1999. Today, Fletchers Bread is a leading brand of sliced bread in the wholesale market, available in a wide range of varieties, that is a proud addition to the product offering from Kara Foodservice.

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, Paul Fletcher (a 3rd generation Fletcher!) the company went through a series of acquisitions before calling Finsbury Foods its home in 2014. Since joining the finsbury family, the Fletchers bread has remained a staple for our wholesale 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.
