Our Key Ingredients
There are five key ingredients that go into the 'Smiths' recipe. five core values that define us, that we believe in as a team. they are fundamental to the success of the brand and we live by them on a daily basis. People We believe our people are what makes us who we are. Commitment We work as a team to get the job done, inspired by traditional family values, exceeding expectations and having fun along the way.
Respect We treat our customers and colleagues the way we'd like to be treated, communicating respectfully and clearly.
Pride We are passionate about making quality bakery products.
Integrity We are always open, honest and trustworthy, we are uncompromising when it comes to environmental, health, hygiene and safety standards.
We are a third generation family baker based in the heart of whisky country in the North East of Scotland. We started in Dufftown when John Smith Sr and wife Isabella opened their first shop, with one van and a few employees back in 1969. They took a leap of faith with two more shops before finding Smiths’ spiritual home in Huntly in 1980 when we acquired Gordons. This lead to the opening of a much larger modern bakery facility which remains the core of all bakery production across the group to this day.
We’ve now grown to a workforce of 70, three shops and a fleet of vans delivering freshly baked goodness across Scotland every day from our modern facility in Huntly.
We’ve never lost sight of how important our people are to us (we’ve got members of staff with over 40 years service!) and our team’s expertise and passion for baking ensures every product that leaves our bakery meets the high standards of the family.
We pride ourselves on delivering quality across our extensive range products from freshly baked morning rolls, scones and pancakes to the finest shortbread and cakes. Producing thousands of fresh baked goods every day, we take all things hygiene and safety very seriously and we are proud to be fully Salsa accredited.
