WHAT / WHO THEY ARE
La Brea Bakery was founded in 1989, with its headquarters in California. The company specializes in the production of artisan bread products, such as baguettes, focaccia, loaves, sandwiches, and dinner rolls among others. It commercializes its products through its La Brea Bakery Cafes in Los Angeles and Anaheim; through general grocery stores and restaurants in the United States, like Kroger and Albertsons; and through online retailers, like Amazon Fresh. Since 2001, the company has been a subsidiary of ARYZTA AG, a leading manufacturer and distributor of baked goods. La Brea Bakery has had gluten-free brands since 2015, and almost all its breads are non-GMO project certified.
La Brea Bakery is committed to "simple ingredients and a patient process." For 30 years, its guiding principle has been to make "beautiful and delicious bread," and it intends to adhere to its original recipe and process. From its onset, the company has valued transparency in ingredients.
According to the brand's senior VP of R&D, Jonathan Davis, La Brea Bakery is a leader in the consumer trend in which consumers demand to know more about the origins of its products, as it has never used "artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives" in its bread. According to the company, its Sourdough Loaf represents "the types of bread that are leading the bread revolution."
