MEMBER NEWS Bakery rises above the competition


Derbyshire family firm Luke Evans Bakery has tasted a slice of success after its granary loaf was awarded the title of Best Wholegrain Loaf in Britain at one of the UK’s biggest food and drink exhibitions. It was the first time that the Riddings-based bakery had entered an award in living memory. The 400g Country Grain granary


loaf took top slot at the awards, staged at the Farm Shop and Deli Show at Birmingham’s NEC. Luke Evans’ Operations Director


Helen Yates said: “It was the first time we have ever entered anything for an award, and to say we are delighted is a huge understatement. “We are thrilled that the Luke


Evans Country Grain granary loaf – which is one of our standard loaves that we sell to around 300 wholesaler and retail customers across Derbyshire, Staffordshire, and Nottinghamshire, as well as in our Riddings shop – has taken the title of Best Wholegrain Loaf in Britain.

‘It was the first time we have ever entered anything for an award’


“All our breads and baked goods


are made by a loyal and talented team at Luke Evans whom we are extremely proud of. They are a young team but of course our pedigree, as family bakers, goes back to 1804.”


San Carlo Leicester takes the top award


San Carlo Leicester has won Restaurant of the Year in the 2018 UK and Ireland Les Routiers Awards. Les Routiers recommends quality establishments across the UK and


Ireland that offer fantastic service, great food and outstanding value for money. Its annual awards highlight establishments that consistently meet and exceed standards. The Italian restaurant and bar in Granby Street, Leicester, was opened in


2000 and was recognised for consistently meeting and exceeding the Les Routiers' membership standards and highlighted for its overall outstanding performance, as well as excellent customer feedback and reviews. Tina Griffiths, Customer Service Executive at Les Routiers UK and Ireland,


said: "Les Routiers acknowledges establishments which share a sense of individuality that sets them apart from global chains. Our annual awards are an opportunity to champion restaurants, such as San Carlo Leicester, that are well-managed, offer exceptional food and impeccable service." Marcello Distefano, Managing Director of the San Carlo Group, which was


founded in Birmingham in 1992, added: "We are delighted with this quality accolade for San Carlo Leicester.”


The awards, organised by British


Baker magazine, attracted more than 200 entries over five categories – gluten free, innovation, sourdough, white and wholegrain. Luke Evans, which employs 50 people at its headquarters in


Greenhill Lane, Riddings, was founded in 1804 by Henry Evans, who named it after his brother Luke. It has been passed down seven generations and is still in the same family over 200 years later – making it one of the oldest family-run bakeries in the country. It operates 24 hours a day, producing high quality bread and baked products.
