How it does good

Preserving the freshness of their quality loaves

About a third of all food produced in the world is wasted, and over 20 pounds of food per person is wasted monthly in the US alone. When the Essential Baking Company realized that fresh bread that isn't sold in the store at the end of the day is thrown away, they were determined to reduce waste. They came up with the Essential FreshSeal™, extending the bread's shelf-life and allowing people to enjoy their delicious loaves for longer. It's all part of their work to make nourishing foods in a positive way, with a small environmental footprint.

  • responsible sourcing

    The Essential Baking Company has made it their mission to support local farmers. They buy their organic flour from Fairhaven Mill in Sakgit Valley and Rodger's Flour, a small group of millers in Canada. Essential Baking Company also use artisan techniques like hand-forming loaves of bread and using all-natural starters, keeping the ingredients list simple and clean.
  • low carbon footprint

    Their Essential FreshSeal™ packaging extends the shelf-life of their bread, locking in freshness for months and reducing bread waste. Essential Baking Company also donates their overbake bread on a daily basis to food banks, non-profits, and organizations in need.
  • supporting key causes

    They donate money to organizations such as PCC Farmland Trust, Mary's Place, and Camp Korey, to name a few. To date, they've donated around $21k to organizations like these.
  • BPA Free
  • Certified Non-GMO

How to use it

Bake or grill the sourdough loaf, depending on your preference. Serve it warm.

When you're done...

Love it

I cut it up and toast it for sandwiches. I love the fact that it only has a few ingredients. It also tastes great toasted with a bit of ghee spread on it.
