We’ve been baking fresh produce since 1946 and apart from technology advancements to help make the process quicker, we’ve kept the same honest values of delivering quality, freshness and service.

Although most of our customers see what goes on in the front of our shops, we wanted to showcase
what our baking team do behind the scenes.

Rise & Shine

Our team are working most days from 3am, ensuring we can get freshly baked items to each of our shops before they open.

Fresh Everyday

Whether bread, tarts or apple turnovers, each product is made every morning at our bakery on Canvey Island and delivered to all of our 12 shops.

Locally Sourced Ingredients

We try to source all our ingredients locally. Our flour is milled locally and the jam in our doughnuts is from Tiptree’s Wilkin & Sons.

The Icing On The Cake

Our team hand cream & ice every item from chocolate eclairs, belgian buns and other yummy goods.

Roll On Lunch Time

Our bakers produce a huge variety of fresh breads, seeded rolls and baguettes all of which our team use for the filled sandwiches & rolls we serve in our shops.

Passionate Team

Some of our team have been with us for over 30 years, their dedication and passion is one of the main reasons our products taste so good.

The Art Of Decorating

All our celebration cakes are made to order from our main bakery, hand iced, expertly decorated and made to individual customer requirements.

Making a variety of fresh bread, cakes, pastries and savoury items, our 70 years of baking expertise has helped establish the Grout’s brand as a leading bakery throughout Essex and we plan to continue to do so for many generations to come.
