The recession and artisan bakeries/baking - your thoughts please
Good Morning all!
I am setting up a small artisan bakery over here in England (UK) across the Atlantic from you guys, and wanted to hear every one's thoughts on how you see the impending economic downturn and possible recession that is upon us affecting small artisan businesses and bread trends?
A bit of a loaded question I know, but I would love to hear your thoughts nonetheless.
- I hope that the recession will mean more people getting into home baking rather than going out and buying cheap branded breads.
- Regardless of the recession there is a movement of people taking a keener interest in what they are eating and what additives and preservatives are in their foods... people are favouring traditional recipes with natural ingredients over chemicals and commercially produced products.
I really look forward to hearing your thoughts... if you have seen any articles in the press recently, include a web link!!
