DUNFERMLINE Bakers Wm Stephens Ltd has been named as the Scottish regional winner of the Craft Bakery Business Award 2018.

The award was presented by celebrity host Stephen Mulhern at the ceremony organised by British Baker, a trade magazine that aims to recognise and honour dedicated individuals and inspirational businesses at the annual event. 

“We are delighted to have been recognised as the best in Scotland. This award very much belongs to all our hard-working teams who make it happen every single day,” said sales development manager Talia Sarafilovic, who collected the award along with operations manager Jordan Hodgson.

“At 145-years-old, we are very proud of our history but we constantly strive to innovate and bring new ideas to the market. Our most recent venture opening Scotland’s first drive-thru bakery was a great success,” said Jordan.

“Our success is only possible with the support of our loyal customers – so a big thank you to them!”

The award follows on from Stephens being crowned Retail Craft Baker of the Year at the annual Scottish Bakers Awards Ceremony in May 2018.
