Bakers Basco Limited was set up in 2006 as a joint venture by five of the UK’s biggest bakeries: Allied Bakeries, Hovis, Fine Lady Bakeries, Frank Roberts & Sons and Warburtons.
The company’s original mission was to design, source and manage a new bread basket which would in time become the accepted industry standard, allowing for significant cost savings in terms of the design, raw material procurement and production of both the basket and dolly.
In the past 13 years, the membership of the Bakers Basco scheme has increased from the original five shareholders to cover twenty-four UK plant bakeries, ranging in size from small to the country’s biggest.
All of them share the benefits of being members of Bakers Basco scheme, knowing they can rely on us to make sure they have the bread baskets they need keeping the UK supplied in some of our favourite baked goods.
Bakers Basco offers the same services, products and charging mechanisms to all members of the scheme, bakeries based in the UK interested in joining the scheme should refer to our “interested in joining section” which details the process and requirements involved.
Please note our products are designed solely to carry wrapped bread products, so our members must commit to not allowing them to be used for any other purposes, such as carrying unwrapped bread products, raw meat, fish or other items which could contaminate the baskets.
The Bakers Basco basket also known as the Omega basket was designed with a one stop merchandising solution in mind.
When we first created our baskets, we brought together a team of experts, including bakers, logistics companies, retailers, equipment manufactures and materials scientists, to ensure that they were not only incredibly sturdy but able to be used as a merchandising unit, cost-effective for the retailers, sustainable and environmentally-friendly.
