Our initial foray into the retail baking world began with us opening the Biggar Flavour bakery on Biggar High Street in 2011. We had an exciting eight years in the bakery, with our expansive patisseries counter delighting customers, and our bakes being recognised in various awards. We made the decision to close the retail bakery in 2019, focusing our business into one premises, with our baking still on offer in The Orchard! We are now able to make our baked goods available across the UK with it all being available for delivery in our Boxes of Sunshine. Our baking includes packed biscuits- oatcakes, crackers & sweet biscuits; individual traybakes, brownies & biscuits.
Our packed biscuit range now boasts ten Great Taste Awards. Our Luxury Scottish Butter Shortbread won a One star gold award in 2018. In September 2020 we won Great Taste Awards for four varieties of our oatcakes – Original Scottish Oatcakes and Completely Cheesy Oatcakes both won Two star gold awards and Cracked Black Pepper Oatcake and Seriously Seedy Oatcakes both won One star gold awards. We added a further five Great Taste Awards in 2021 with a further Two star award for our Dark Muscovado Shortbread, and One star awards for Ginger Shortbread, Coconut Delights, Oaty Oatcakes and Seriously Seedy Crackers.
Two of our biscuit varieties recently gained acclaim in The Great British Food Awards 2021. Our Completely Cheesy Oatcakes were judged the Best Savoury Biscuit by none other than Michel Roux Jr having been sent to his restaurant Le Gavroche for judging! And our Luxury Scottish Butter Shortbread was tasted by Martha Collison, previous contestant on The Great British Bake Off and awarded Highly Commended– one of the top three- in the Sweet Biscuit Category.
Our packed savoury biscuit range also includes Onion Oatcakes, Porridge Oatcakes and Savoury Cheese Shorties. We also have Oaty Oatcakes, Herby Oatcakes and Chia & Ginger Oatcakes which are made using plant based ingredients, as are our Seriously Seedy Crackers, Cobber crackers and Salt and Pepper crackers.
Other varieties of packed sweet biscuits include include Highlanders, and vegan biscuit packs which will vary but include Cocoa Shorties, Empire Shorties, Vanilla Oaties and Chocolate Oaties.
